Born in 1955 I grew up in Herzebrock, Westfalia, Germany. Later I visited school in nearby Rietberg. Following this I studied Physics and Electrical Engineering in Bielefeld. 1989 made me moving to the Baltic Sea.
Nowadays I am a professional RF engineer
working with Aastra Deutschland GmbH in
Kiel/SH. With my family I live only a few hundred meters away
from the Baltic Sea shore north to the city of Kiel in
the community of Schwedeneck.
My Amateur Radio interests are especially Earth-Moon-Earth(EME) communications and the magic 50 MHz band. I build a lot of my equipment myself. This includes also the bunch of software I use for my radio operation.
Astrophotography is a real fascinating field for activity. It combines nice with my Amateur Radio interests. You will find a lot of information on my Astrophotography pages.
Besides this I play guitar, mandolin and whistles and I love playing Folk-music.
