50 MHz
until 30 April 2011 Some Meteorscatter QSOs made. Only weak SporadicE signals until now.
10 April 2011 The first Sporadic-E signals of this spring have been heard. Signals from EA were very weak. This first opening did not reach us here in the north.
06 April 2011 Strong aurora opening on 6m too. I made some QSOs.

144 MHz
06 April 2011 Strong aurora opening - only listening.
05 April 2011 I made a bunch of contacts in the NAC contest. The first time I used my Flex-1500/transverter combination, which really did a very good job.

40m
Again I ran a few CW QSOs with the Flex on 40m.

I recently purchased a new camera: a NIKON D7000. It outperforms my old NIKON D70(s) by far. Now I have been able to try the first astrofotos with it. They are made without the camera internal noise reduction.
Have a look here: 1st NIKON D7000 AstroImages
Have fun ...
