|My way to the
In the late 70's my grandpa Horst, he was a SWL in the 30's: DE2839U,
My Grandpa Horst DE 2839U 1932
My GrandGrandPa Max "SWL" 1932
he helped and supported my first
steps in BC and ELECTRONIC.
He was my inspiration for becomming a ham.
- I started with CW under Y65QN's help in 1979.
Karl teached me with patience and gave me the chance to take part in many CW-Competitions
in the old GDR.
After 2 years I had success and won the Youth-Championship in 1982 (GDR) in keying and
listening...it was rd. 140 WpM.
In the same year I became a SWL and I was on air...
- I got my amateur-licence 1986 and worked under
- but sporadicly only in the Clubstation.
- After the wall came down I got my own station with
an old FT277B and a FD4. This was a good destruction from my dentistry study on the
weekend. The old Y-Calls had to change in 1992 and I got DL1JBQ. I improved my setup with
a FT920, 3 el Monobander for 10m and made Packet Radio in 1997.
I have built a 16m tower with a LP7 in 1999 and
got a little bit more power....
after 300 DXCC with 100w. I have a big garden and a wide field to make this without
trouble in TV and headache by the neighborhood....hihi I increased my rig step by step and
so it was time to improve my call:
I had the possibility to chance into DL7CX for "better understanding" in PHONE
in 1999....hihi....and it's working a lot better... I work from 10m to 160m and take
part in some contests.... My favorite modes are phone (60%) and cw, but because I got a
modem I also like RTTY and SSTV.
In my vacation I try to be on air but not like a
dx'petition just to have fun...
So I worked from various places:
I hope to meet YOU on the band and wish you best
DX and a peaceful band without lids....
