Times are strange. So I am working from home since a few weeks - in Germany they call "Home Office". Lot of work to do. But we are OK until now.
Please follow all advice and stay safe.

The antenna has changed ... I have put up my old small 6m four element antenna with preamplifier on top of the tower at 12m above ground level. It will stay there until I have an idea, how my next antenna shall look like.
Meanwhile I have purchased a 2m transverter, which works well with my old Flex-1500 SDR transceiver (hopefully). A good preamplifier is here already. Time will show ...

On the other hand I am busy making Folk Music - have a look at that website: Christoph's Music Site (its in German)

2020 is here. I wish everyone a Happy New Year and may all your wishes come true. For those of you suffering from pain, deseases, war or whatever: May the future become better for you and believe in it.

I have uploaded the DL0SHF Logbook for my (not only) remote operation for your information. It contains all EME contacts I (DF9CY) have made since 2017. I have worked from DL0SHF since 1995, but these logs are not available for me in the moment.
QSLs can be sent to me (DF9CY). You will find my address in the impressum of this site.

My 50 MHz, 144 MHz and 432 MHz antennas are down, because they were due to some restauration. For the time being, I hooked up my 40m antenna (monoband fullsize dipole) at 17m where it does a phantastic job. I made more than 1200 QSOs on 40m in 2019 - mostly FT8 mode and about 100 in CW.

Have fun on the band and activate, activate, activate ...

My 6m antenna is down since the beginning of August. My 40m dipole has moved up by 8m to about 17m at the centre. It is working excellent here.

I made several hundred QSOs on 40 mostly FT8, but some CW contacts were there as well. So contacts were done on 15m as the antenna performs a bit there as well.
