In 2009, I decided to take part in a HAM novice-license training that was hosted by DJ2HL and he excellently prepared the four of us for the examns in June 2009 with best success. My callsign then was DO9KAI.

Exactly one year later, on June 26, 2010, I passed my examn for Class A, again well prepared by DJ2HL !

As DO9KAI I played with a YAESU FT-897D feeding a G5RV-antenna.

I now operate an ICOM IC-7600 at my homebase at JN48NS88EE using a GAP Titan DX vertical multiband antenna, installed some 350 m ASL at 2.5 m above street level, rising 7.5 m up to the top.
I think for a neighbourhood in the city this is one of the best solutions for a radio amateur as this antenna picks up only little of the QRN and offers good DX signals while receiving and transmitting.

When we decided to refurbish our home last year (applying thermal,environmental friendly insulation, new windows, etc.), I had the idea to look for a suitable rotatable aerial on top of the roof and came across the Spiderbeam 5-Band antenna ... finally I installed the HD version while the house had the scaffolding anyway.
The result can be seen in the little photo-collection at the bottom of this page.

I will send my QSL direct only and prefer to receive your QSL the same way.
Please do not make use of the bureau as QSLs vanish sometimes...
You can also order your QSL online on ClubLog. In case you send your QSL direct, please include 1 actual IRC or 2 greenstamps. Tnx !

Since I was 6 years old, I have always been interested in electronics and became a SWL in 1974 focusing on the tropical bands and pirate radio stations on shortwave.

My profession is architect and I am married to my wonderful wife having three great children, two girls and a boy.

Also, a Spiderbeam 404-ultralight + tuner (see above)is in operation
when hiking, on SOTA and IOTA expeditions.

And in the car, I am operating the following together with the YAESU- and Elecraft radios:
