About me and my station                                                                                                 member of      see #organ

Born 1953 in Berlin/Germany. We lived in a house with 6  flats on three floors and 4 additional appartments close to the ground, named "souterrain" distinguishedly - in fact the windows of these appartments had a height of 1 ft above ground. The 2nd world war was over, but you felt a war-atmosphere in the whole town. Because it was the era of the "cold war". That's why i came in touch with amateur radio. In our house lived a piano teacher too. She earned not much, so her sister and her son tried to get money in addition. The son, who had two boys round my age, was an expert in radio technique.  So he built up "new radios" with components of the ancient german army, which were easy to get. Many years later I found an old radio under the roof. I was searching for the valves. Finally I found a hole, where a screw could be turned in it. When I pulled the screw out, I held one of the famoust german valves in my hand: the RV12P2000. The young father was an unlis radioamateur too. So we had to live with his qrm during listening to the radio program in the evening. But I got enthousiastic, when I heard, that he was in contact with stations in south america. Unfortunately the young family moved to the netherlands. There, he was busy to develop with "Prof. Walter Bruch" the first pal-colour-tv at Philips in Eindhoven. But nevertheless I tried to be informed about their life, when I got my piano lessons.
At the end we both became serious radioamateurs, he was busy with a ON7-call, due to his residence near the border to netherlands and my call was a german one. 
But before getting my licence  I spent many years in repairing and constructing of receivers. The first one was a 2V1 with: EF 85 (rf-stage)-ECC 83 (cascode-regenerative stage) - EF 80 (af-amplifier). To overcome the problems, which are always present, when you begin with the realization of the electronic circuit, a class mate told me about the german amateur-radio-club DARC. We went to the meeting and I was very pleased about the help and advice I got there. 
In 1976 I got my 1st licence. Five years later, as a member of the local radio club in Goslar (Harz), I found a very good teacher in telegraphy. It is OM Wim, DJ 0 PM, who moved from a dutch freightship, where he was busy as radio-officer, to Goslar. Since 1983 I got my present german call DL 5 OAN until I moved to the netherlands.

Radio scouting is very important for me. So I was the JOTA-coordinator for several years of my scout-association the BdP in germany. I am convinced that our hobby is important for a wireless-network until now.
So you are not wasting time, if you teach children how to communicate in another way, instead of using smartphones, etc. Every day at school  I realize, that the young people are growing up in a world with solved problems - you only have to pay for the solutions. The children are very far of technical experiences. They only know, that a product has to work, but they have no idea how it works. Thus they don't know if it is possible to construct any similar product by themselves.

We should not be astonished, when the young generation is a "non technic-generation". But we need technicians, natural scientists in the future. So it is our responsibility  to educate them. We have to find out the right way to "infect" them. That is quite different regarding my generation. One possible strategy could be the "old fashioned way": to start with simple diode-receivers and continuing step by step to the first transmitter. This is funny, but the telegraphy still is the easiest way of communication. The kids enjoy it - that shows the experience.

In the netherlands the JOTA is a very important event, so it is a "must" assisting them as an engaged radioamateur. A wonderful experience for me, when we moved to this area.

Thank you for your patience keep reading  to the end, but these thoughts I have written are an important part of my biography and I hope more interesting as talking about my family or my profession as teacher for physics and chemistry.

I hope I will meet you again on the bands with my "radio-museum" which works until now but needs to be handled  as the old aunt of the family because of her inheritance. You are in doubt? Have a look to the prices, when the Drake-line has been sold fifty years ago and compare it with your income at this time.

       Since  1972, when i did my examen as church-musician i am still working as organist until today. That's why i am a member of the conveniat too. One of my challenges was the Muller-organ of the "Grote of Sint Bavokerk" in Haarlem, Holland. Many peoples played
 
that famous instrument, some well known colleagues as Georg-Friedrich Händel and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was exciting to follow up them as a "little number" in a row of experts.
