Amateur Radio  - A beautiful hobby ! I started my radio amateur career in  1982 at the age of 17 and hit the air  since then with my call sign DL9GBH.  Favourite operation mode in early  times was shortwave with a lot of nice  contacts. VHF/UHF operation followed  soon, with homebrew transverters for  the GHz-bands.Due to job, ham radio  activities slowed down between 1992-  1996.   SM0WKY - My call sign in Sweden This call sign I had during a 3 year  stay, working abroad in Stockholm.  Several trips and ham activities lead to  IOTA-islands (e.g. Öland, Vesteralen).  Before returning back to Germany in  1999, I became lifetime member of the  Sveriges Sändareamatörer club SSA.  Back in Germany I started to become  active on 10 GHz, mainly rainscatter  operated from home. DK0SF - VHF/UHF/SHF Contest St. DK0SF is ( again ) in operation since  2004 in JN48SW. It is the club station  of SG-Stern Mercedes Stuttgart and  now operated at the location of  DL6SH. Together with DL6SH &  DH2SAV and many other hams I  participated regulary in contests,  before moving to Berlin and now to  JO62XJ, in the state of Brandenburg.  DL9GBH/P  DK0SF/P DL6SH DH2SAV DL9GBH JO72AK
