My name is Dietmar (Didi) and I live in the most southern province of Germany called Baden-Württemberg.ich

I am licensed since 1982 as DL2SBA (former license class B). In my family also my beloved wife Monika DL6SCF and my father DK1UO are licensed hams but not yet active on the bands.

Usually I operate in CW on the HF bands from 80m to 10m using an ELECRAFT K3 into a dipole antenna with an hamware AT-502 antenna tuner.

On vacation and on business trips I use my homebuild ELECRAFT K1 or my new KX3 with small vertical antennas or dipoles for fine qrp contacts.

Also I'm running a very simple 400mW 40m CW transceiver from home - see details here.

Due to the power and antenna limitations real DX qsos are rare for me. So I'm very pleased for every non european station calling me :-)

  • I'm also a member of the DARC local Radio Club of Esslingen DOK P02. Please check their web-page on http://www.p02.de.

Hope to meet you on the bands

Dietmar, DL2SBA
