2015:

Cyprus, AS-004:
This year Hartwig, DL7BC and I are going to Cyprus for WAE SSB. We will both be in WAE as Single OPs. Hart is lowpower and I will go for highpower using 5B4AIF’s Clubstation. TNX to Norman for the chance to use his house in Statos for our vacation. I hope to hear you on many bands before, after and in WAE-SSB
I will upload all 5B/DJ8OG QSOs to Clublog and LotW after my vacation but also the german QSL bureau or direct cards with SAE + IRC or 2$ are OK.
Please work me in the contest as C4I on as many bands as possible and please take a set of QTCs :-)
See you on the bands from 5B/DJ8OG – C4I in WAE


2015:

Madeira, AF-014:
This year I will be back on Madeira, AF-014 from 24.03.2015 – 31.03.2015. Main reason is the WPX-SSB contest. This year I will go alone, station assembling is almost done by the ARRL Crew but I will add some additional things so it will take a little time and I will also make some sightseeing. Whenever I’m at the station I will be on Air. I plan to be active from 80m to 6m. If you can hear a CT3 beacon on 6m you can give me an information on DX-Cluster or “on air” and I will QSY to 6m. Up to now I did only two 6m QSO’ while on Madeira to PY and V5, this year I hope to increase my 6m QSOs :-). Before the contest I will operate also 12m and 17m and some 30m. I hope to hear you on many bands.
I will upload all CT9/DJ8OG QSOs to Clublog and LotW but also the german QSL bureau or direct cards with SAE + IRC or 2$ are OK. During my vacation I will try to upload the QSOs once a day to clublog if I have an internet connection. I have the clublog search applet here on my webpage, please scroll down to the right search applet (CT9/DJ8OG).
Please work me in the contest on as many bands as possible
See you on the bands from CT9/DJ8OG – CQ3L or CR3L in WPX SSB


2013:

Madeira, AF-014:
This year I will be back on Madeira, AF-014 from 10.09.2013 – 17.09.2013. Main reason is the WAEDC-SSB contest again. This year I will go alone, station assembling will take a little more time and I will also make some sightseeing. Whenever I’m at the station I will be on Air. I plan to built two stations, one for hf and one for 6m. If you can hear a CT3 beacon on 6m you can give me an information on DX-Cluster or “on air” and I will QSY to 6m. Last year I had one QSO to PY, this year I hope to increase my 6m QSOs :-). Before the contest I will operate also 12m and 17m and maybe some 30m. I might call different regions from time to time before the contest as the contest is dedicated to europe again. I hope to hear you on many bands.
I will upload all CT9/DJ8OG QSOs to LotW after my vacation but also the german QSL bureau or direct cards with SAE + IRC or 2$ are OK. During my vacation I will try to upload the QSOs once a day to clublog if I have an internet connection. I have the clublog search applet here on my webpage, please scroll down to the right search applet (CT9/DJ8OG).
Please work me in the contest on as many bands as possible and please accept QTC, its fun. When the QSO rate is too high and I cant give you QTCs at this time please come back later and we will exchange it. If you are not fimiliar with QTCs it’s very easy and I will slow down if you tell me.
See you on the bands from CT9/DJ8OG – CR3L in WAE
