and my callsign is DL4OCC. As you can see from the 'D' in my callsign, I live in Germany.
I passed the examination for my radio amateur license in 1992. At first it seemed that I would need Morse code only for the exam, but now I'm even helping with teaching code at my local Radio Amateur Club.
Maybe that's because I've been a school teacher for more than thirty years now and, you won't believe it, I still love my job.
Today I am the headmaster of a mid-size elementary school in Anderten, which is one of Hannover's still more rural suburbs. At our school, the Kurt-Schumacher-Schule, 21 teachers teach about 290 pupils at an age of 6 to 11.
Some of my time I still spend teaching for boys and girls in English, Math, German and other topics. I do like this very much, but very often all the school management tasks have higher priority.
On the right you find my QSL card, which clearly gives a hint at my profession. When there is still time left, I sometimes sit in front of our VHF and short-wave radios and try to make contacts with all parts of the world.
