In "Muhr am See" in JN59ID 420m above sea level, I found my final destination for my retirement. After moving there I started in early summer 2016 to build up my first antennas.

1st June 2016 I am retired! Time for hobby, so I immediately started to prepare a application to build up a tower. When I get the allowence by german bureaucracy the plan is to build up a 17m Versatower for my 2m/70cm/23cm antennas, probably in summer 2017.

28th July 2016 first qso from Muhr ! Time without HF has ended. Only a FD4 windom antenne, ends still on the ground, but a start has been made!

14th September 2016 a Big Wheel antenna for 2m, a omnidirectional antenne with horizontal polarization, 7m above ground. So at least I can start a little bit with activities at my favorite band. Already worked two stations over a distance of more than 400 km. Not bad for a Big Wheel. But my attempt to put the antenna on the roof failed. After standing one meter on the roof, I decided that I am too old to climb on a roof with 45 degree angle.  :-(

30th October 2016 FD4 is down and I pulled up a loop antenna with 87m wire at 4 pools around the house. This loop antenna is working very well :-)

4th November 2016 I got my Big Wheel for 2m on the roof, so now it is 10m above ground and worked well in the VHF Marconi-Contest.

 

 

Still only having my Big Wheel antenna for 2m but with growing dx virus at Dec 14th 2016 I tried MS. Received a cq of LZ2FO/2, answered and finally achieved a qso ! KN14KA - 1089km with my Big Wheel only!

 

 

So after this success my dx virus grew even faster and I tried what else is possible. Of course I as well as the other stations needed a lot of patience but so I had some more ms qso:
 
21.12.2016 G4CDN   JO02SS    759km
01.01.2017 GW4BVE IO82KQ  1047km
03.01.2017 LY2WR   KO24FO  1119km
05.01.2017 YU1EV    KN04CN    885km
08.03.2017 LZ2FO    KN13KX  1091km
 
 
Not bad for a single Big Wheel antenna isnt it :-)
 
 
3rd March 2017 I got the official building permission for my BP60SX Versatower. Planning for building the basement in May and first antennas up in autumn.

UA3XAC    KO85HC   2030km
UA3PTW   KO93BS   2129km    (Nice contact Dmitrij after eme qso from UK and UN, now tnx for new square from my homeland  ;-)
 
18.06.2017:
ES6DO     KO27WX   1397km

TA1D/3   KM39BP     1612km
 
 
30th July 2017 my dream came true, a 17m Versatower BP60 with antenna groups! (see page mastproject).
 
Now I am back again in VHF/UHF!
