I was born in 1958 in East Germany and got my first Ham Radio license at age of 16 in March 1975. My first call sign was DM3PFF. Until 1990, the year of the reunification of East- and West Germany, I never had the chance to experience pile ups from the other side. Nevertheless it was 2003, when I participated in my first DXpedition to Kerkennah Island, Tunisia (TS7N). In the following years I attended more or less large DXpeditions every year. As you can see in my callsign - CW is my favored mode and I am particularly fond of beautiful CW pile ups.
I am member of the Bavarian Contest Club and spark at most major DX contests in the M/M category at the contest station DR1A in Goch, near the Dutch border. Of course I'm interested in DXing itself. Currently my last missing entities are P5, KH5 and KH9.
