January - April 2017 QRT. Find the reason for this in the pictures at the bottom of the page.


 In 2015 I was active with the special callsign HB90IARU in CW, SSB and digital modes.
The number of contacts: 12'126 . It was a excellent training to improve personal skills in contest operating.


In 2017 USKA has activated the callsign HB600NVF. HB9CIC worked 4000 contacts in CW, SSB and digital modes. Check www.qrz.com for background information.

 

I prefere operating in CW and SSB to complete checklists for some big awards. Active also in digital modes, like RTTY, BPSK (31/63/128), Olivia, MFSK, HELL, SSTV and others. You can work me often as a participant in european and worldwide contests. New FT8 mode takes place from 3th of October 2017.

2013 I reached my best result ever in the CQ WW DX CW contest: 1300 QSO, score about 1'200'000 points. During this contest QSO # 100'000 found the way into my log book.

 QSL information 

I do not process eQSL's. I see eQSL as basically useless for any mainstream awards, not valid for a number of "big" awards.
QSL via buro is standard procedure. I load all my log data for CW, SSB and digital modes (including FT8) monthly to LOTW. Contest logs are uploaded few days after the event. You are welcome to send your QSL-card direct with SAE and enough return postage to my personal adress. If you do not follow the procedure below, I send back your QSL via buro. Please have attention to the following roules:

  • Europe SAE + 2 US$
  • Outside Europe SAE + 2 US$
  • Special roules for Switzerland: SAE with Swiss stamps for A or B service
  • Special roules for Germany: SAE with german stamps. Letters goes direct to german post services.

    SWL Reports are all the time welcome. Today's SWLs are tomorrow's hams.
