Welcome to my website,
my name is Mike, born in 1970 in the Saarland-area, where I’m still living.
I got infected with the “radio-virus” in the early 80’s and I made my first steps in the CitizenBand. In 1986 I passed the exam and became a HAM. The first years my passion was high-speed CW, because my “small-pistol-station” was very dissapointing in breaking pile-ups.
After finishing my studies of electrical engineering in 1998 I had the possibilities to put up larger antennas and I discovered my new favourite - DXing. My QTH is located 460m asl in the northern part of the Saarland, not far away from the borders to France and Luxembourg. The area is called “Schwarzwälder Hochwald”, a very hilly terrain.
I’m mainly active in CW and RTTY. Another interest is contesting and you can hear me in major (CW-) contests from Luxembourg as a member of LX7I.
I’very happy about all kind of feedback, so please feel free to sign my guestbook or write me an email to mike - at - df3vm.de.
I confirm all first contacts per band/call via buro or lotw.
Hope to hear you on the bands, good DX and take care,
