Ham Member Lookups: 1521


QSL info follows below the text.


I started with a Kenwood TH-F7 handheld radio to work with (Dual VFO, all band - all mode RX).

I'm a member of DARC DOK X20 since june 2011 and licenced OM since 2011-11-11 (really, no joke, exam was 2 days earlier).

My intentions with HAM radio are not just to talk, i will try out as much possible modes (SSB, digital modes, EME etc) as i can, to find out what is the most exciting kind of HAM'ing for me. I also enjoy contesting, DX and i want to learn CW.

At this time, PSK31 is my preferred mode on SW.


Since 2011-11-14 i own a YAESU FT-1000D. What a beauty, and what a beast 8-)

I bought it from a friendly OM in excellent condition and fully equipped with all optional stuff, many thanks to DM3BJ for this offer :-)


Since 2012-01-11 i have a self made G5RV antenna connected to my trx. I have to work all bands with this antenna, because it's the only one i'm allowed to deploy here at my home for short wave, so it must do. At least just one antenna is much better than no antenna ;-)

Update 2015-03-11: My G5RV were destroyed by drunken antisocial neighbour last year, so i have to decide what antenna i will set up next. Maybe i'll try an angled multiband dipole. To be able to work some QSO till final antenna is set up, i've made a bazooka for 10 meters.


I'm also QRV on APRS since november 2011, after we had a DIY meeting for the hardware (XS054 tracker). I spent the tracker a dedicated TRX (many thanks to DO5BFH for that donation and his help with trx<=>tracker wiring) with it's dedicated antenna. At the moment that make a total count of 4 antennas (CB radio, 2m-70cm HAM radio, APRS radio and the common FM car bc receiver) at my car (much more than i have at home ) 8-)


Actually i use several transceivers and antennas depending on situation. If i find some time, i'll made some photos of my stuff...

Home QTH:

- SW: Yaesu FT-1000D at G5RV, microHAM DigiKeyer II, HamRadioDeluxe 5 (and several other tools)

- VHF/UHF: Alinco DR-570 at 430MHz-LogPer for our local repeater DB0GER, Kenwood TM-733 at Diamond X-200


Mobile use:

- VHF/UHF: Alinco DR-610 at Diamond NR-770H

- APRS: Icom IC-240 with XS054 Tracker at Diamond MR-77


Whenever necessary:

- Kenwood TH-F7 with a Diamond SRH771 antenna

- Standard C528 with a "Comet CH-600MX Miracle King" antenna (it's quite heavy, so in case of empty battery you can still use it for self defense, HI)

- Echolink on PC and Android


In my "stored for later use" box:

- Alinco DR-110, 144MHz monobander, repaired by DL2AWT, planned for APRS via VHF at home QTH (sending beacon via internet atm)

- TNC2S by DK9SJ, planned for APRS with the DR110 above

- Konni F-11 short Yagi and Konni F-20 long Yagi

- Maspro WHS32N Oscar-Hunter (set of 2 X-Yagi for satellite communication)

- AZ/EL rotators

- another 430MHz-LogPer

- Timewave AEA DSP-1232, i'm looking for any kind of documentation/manual/pin-layout for this thing, i'm unable to get it to work with "Airmail" on shortwave, TNX if you can e-mail me any helpful stuff


QSL info:

QSL via bureau is definitely preferred!

I prefer QSL via bureau. You may send direct if you like, but add 1 SAE and 1 IRC (or 1 green stamp) please, if you want me to reply the direct way. Thank you very much.

If you send eQSL only, reply is not guaranteed! My eQSL account was created just for testing purposes, but not for regular use. This may change in the future, but at this time it's not assured.

I'll also confirm any first contact with a paper QSL card, if there is a chance to send it to you by bureau or snail mail. If you are not in the club and have no postal address published: well, bad luck ;-)

Below you see my self created QSL card with famous buildings of my home town with city coat of arms, and the "Thuringian Forest" as background. I will reply every paper QSL card sent to me also with paper QSL card if not already sent one. I don't like those "ecards" and "eQSL's" and so on.




Since 2013-06-14 i am also member of the EPC (European Phase Shift Keying Club). My EPC number is 21031, my certificate is shown below:


For those who are using eQSL, here is my AG certificate:



I'm looking forward to meet you on air!
