- Activation of DQ2006A
I stayed for a longer working visit (roughly three months) in Argentina. Thus I
have asked the RCA
(Radio Club Argentino) for a guest license for that period and I gratefully
appreciate their support and that a license has been issued to me.
Here a screenshot of it:

- Activities with DL0PHG
DL0PHG is the call sign of our club station (A53), the
responsible person for that call is YL Elke, DH3IAM.
From time to time I activated (will activate, respectively) this call on
2 m. If you want to request a QSL card for a QSO during my activation periods,
you may send your card via my callsign (via bureau) but sending it via the
club call will work, too.
I activated DL0PHG for the following periods:
2004/08/01 - 2004/08/31 : 2m SSB
2004/01/01 - 2004/01/31 : 2m SSB
In 2009 Philippsburg, the home town of our local amateur radio club, celebrates
its 1225th anniversary. We take this opportunity to distribute the SDOK
(= special DOK) 1225PHG as much as we can. This SDOK is valid throughout
the whole year 2009.
I am looking forward to work you on the bands!
- Programming ...
Well, beside my programming work at my QRL there is a lot of interesting
stuff to be done related to HAM business. Simply contact me if you find
something useful or interesting for you ...
- Some software for merging/comparing ADIF logs, especially to
prepare the outgoing logs for eQSL.cc.
- under construction: a small program to put all DARC contest results
(from their web site) into a mySQL data base.
I use this information to find out the DOKs of stations worked with.
At the moment, all DARC VHF contests (since 2001) are in my data base
and it is already quite useful ...
- Recently I revived my attempts to get some Atmel AVR micro controllers
working ... well it is a long time that I have done something similar
but now you can read more about my AVR activities ...
- electronic handcrafting
- Antenna construction
I am trying to build at least some of my antennas by my own. So I have
more possibilities for experiments, I gain some experience and it is
finally not so expensive. Read here
for more information ...
