my hamradio biography :

1971 : My first touch with hamradio at the age of 15 was at the Jamboree on the Air with my local boy scout group in Diekirch (Luxembourg) . I made my first QSOs with the JOTA-callsign LX1JAI. My Elmers were John LX1SK(sk) and André LX1BA.

1971-1975 : My SWL station: Trio TS510 receiver and a Fritzel GPA installed on the roof of our house in Diekirch. I also operated regulary at the high school club station LX9DD and participated since then in every JOTA. In 1975, I operated also from the international Scout Jamboree in Lillehammer (Norway), where I had some nice contacts back home from LC1J with my friend John LX1SK in phone and SSTV. 

1976 : I got my own license LX1JX in February 1976 and started dxing on the HF bands from my QTH : Diekirch JN39BU.

1978 : I built the 2m repeater LX0HI with some friends in the north of the country JN39AV and had first VHF activities on 2m SSB

1980 : I had a first touch with 6m at the japanese DXpedition YB9X on Bali. I was impressed by the possibilities of this VHF band, which was not well known in EUROPE (they worked a pile of VKs and JAs). I also got interested in RTTY, built a RTTY video terminal converter (no PC available those days) and was qrv in Baudot 45bd and ASCII 110bd on the HF bands.

1980 : First 2m & 70cm contest-participation with my friends LX1JE, LX1MN, LX1TS, LX1ML, LX1SR with the call LX0DX QTH : Bourscheid (JN39AV) 

1982 : new QTH : Reuler near Clervaux in the north of Luxembourg JO30AB

1982 - 1994 : member of the RL board: first became youth manager, then VHF manager and finally secretary of the Luxembourg Amateur Radio Society RL (ww.rlx.lu).

Built 3 transverters for 70cm, 23cm and 13cm. I was quite active on those bands in the 80'ties.

1984 : converted a 3M2346 FAX machine to be used on all FAX modes for HF use. I made a lot of FAX QSOs on the HF bands and also on 2m.

1986 : built a 6m converter 50MHz / 28 MHz and started with cross band operation. Antenna was a simple dipole and a GP. The main crossband frequency was 28.885 MHz. Worked all continents crossband (RX 6m / TX 10m)

1990 March 2nd : 50 MHz is now allowed for all LX hams with some restrictions. I made the first 6m QSO the same day with Marcel LX1SI (sk), who was a very active 6m DXer in the 90ties. The equipment was a homebrew transverter 25W output and the 6el CL6DX Yagi.

1993 : built the 6m beacon LX0SIX, which is still operational nowadays. The dipole antenna was exchanged in 2005 with a big wheel, which is a better performer.

1993 : received 6m DXCC # 160

2000 : build a 4m converter and started to monitor the band

2006 June 1th : 70 MHz is now allocated to all LX hams with some restrictions. Nobody had a 4m transmitter ready then and I immediately started to build a dedicated transverter for 70 MHz. I made the first QSO with Joe CT1HZE on July 1th 2006 with my homemade OZ-transverter and a 6el Eagle Yagi.

2007 : I made my first EME QSO with W7GJ on 6m in JT65a mode

2014 : worked KG7H via EME on 6m. My 6m-DXCC standing is now 190

2015 : built a simple quarterwave wire groundplane for 20m, which is working perfectly. Since mid February stations from FK, HS, 9M, VU, JA, VK, ZL, ZS, C9, 5H, FR, 3B9, LU, PY, OA, FM, FG,YN, W, VE, KL +++  in my 20m log.

6m DXCC standing now 193 ; new ones 2015 : Z81D, CE3SX, TJ3SN

2016 : I'm retired now since April 2016 after 38 years of service as RF engineer at Radio Luxembourg's high power transmitter stations.

6m new one this year : TY2AC.

6m DXCC standing : 194

Fall 2016 : exploring digital modes on HF (10-80m) with 50W output max to 40m longwire 12m up
