Welcome to the home page of
In the late 70's I got interested in shortwave listening. I collected QSLs
cards from shortwave radio stations. Due to my limited equipment I was
not able to listen to amateur radio. The radio I was using could not receive
SSB or CW, i.e. it did not have a BFO.
Somehow I got into contact with a local ham (DJ2MR) whom I visited
frequently to have a look at his radio station and watch him operating.
In 1983 I received my first license (VHF/UHF-only) with the callsign
of DG1EAE. When I upgraded my license to HF in June 1990, I got interested
in DXing. After a few years of inactivity, I restarted ham
radio in May 1998.
I also hold a FCC Extra Class License with the callsign KC8RNL
since May 2001.
My favorite operation mode is CW but I also do some SSB and also tried
PSK31 and RTTY a few times.
Here's some information about my station equipment:
||Kenwood TS-570, IC-706 MKII
||Optibeam OB 9-5; 66ft inverted L (30, 40, 80m) with
||DXCC, WAC, WAE, IOTA,
I also like to operate on HF during my holidays. Up to now I have operated
Here you'll find my shack cam
(active only during operation hours) which updates every two minutes.
