Hello, I´m Achim (Jim) and I´m a short wave radio amateur since 3rd November 1982 > celebrating more than 38 years of ham radio operations!!
I live in the northwest part of Germany near the city of Dortmund in a little town: Bergkamen - the town of chemicals industry and former coalmining! I am a passionated shortwave DX'er and I am looking for my final 5 DXCC entities (3Y (Bouvet), KH3 (Johnston), KH4 (Midway), KH5 (Palmyra) and T31 (Central Kiribati)on the bands and I am also participating in some contests (DARC 10m, XMAS, Fielddays, WAG, WAEDC, etc.). So please give me a call if you copy my callsign on the bands.
Skeds are welcome! Please visit my HP DL1DAW !
