|1972 - 1976||DM3BGO in Berlin||I got my first license with the call sign DM3BGO in 1972. In the next two years I made about 600 CW-QSOs on 80 mtrs with 20 watts input (10-RT).
Later on I worked with a hungarian tcvr Telrad 200 on 80 to 10 mtrs with 100 watts output in CW & SSB.
|1977 - 1979||DM3WXL in Dresden||Only some QSOs, but I worked Navassa I. (W0RJU/KP1) in November 1978 and got the QSL.|
|1980 - 1983||Y25PL in Dresden||I worked at Y51ZL, a clubstation of the Technical University Dresden with my call sign Y25PL/a on the HF-bands with 400 watts output. The antenna was a W3DZZ about 20 mtrs up in the air.|
|1983 - 1988||Y25QE in Muencheberg, nr Berlin||I made several thousends CW-QSOs running a homebrew QRP-tcvr (4 watts output) on 80 to 20 mtrs and got the WAC/QRP.|
|1988 - 1992||Y25QE in Eberswalde||I was not very active at all, but made some CW-QSOs with my QRP-tcvr.
In 1990 I bought a used TS-820 and started to work some CW/SSB-DX with a 40 mtrs long doublet antenna.
|1992 - 1999||DL4BQE in Eberswalde||In 1998 I finished a homebrew linear amplifier with 4 x GU-50 (russian tubes) and 400 watts output. And so DXing became a bit easier.|
|1999 - 2013||DL6JZ in Eberswalde||This was my most active period. 320 current DXCCs are confirmed, the 8-Band-DXCC hangs on the wall. My antennas are a FD-4 Windom and a R-7000 vertical. The R-7000 was replaced by an AV-640.
My special interests now are DXCC, IOTA, RTTY-contesting and holiday activities from European countries.
