2015 - my jubilee year
In December, 1975 I had got
my first licence. 40 years of active operation prefers in CW with the
call signs DM2AEA, Y21EA and DL3KWR have worldwide clear impressions leave.
Therefore my family took this jubilee to the occasion to surprise me to
the birthday with an individual stamp „ 40 years amateur radio station
“ which daughter Sabine, DL3KWS, had formed.
How does one celebrate now 40 years of amateur radio life? - one operates a lot. And if one cannot draw the attention with a personal special call sign to himself, one activates YL club call signs.
Therefore I operated during our Denmark vacation in September as a SYLRA member as OZ6SYL. In this time fell the CW part of the Scandinavian Contest (SAC). Of course I have taken part in it - for the first time as a "Scandinavian". I became to my surprise with 485 QSOs the best YL Scaninavians and got a Trophy donated by Ulf SB3W.
I took part in the WAG contest
as DLØYLV and provided with the DOK "YLV" with some OMs
for confusion. In the contest WWDX CW there was with 458 QSOs as DAØYL
At the beginning of December
I presented once again DAØYL in the TOPS Activity Contest (TAC)
and finished with it my jubilee activities.
All in all, have got my jubilee year 9,866 QSOs (99.2% CW) to my log. And the whole result of my amateur-radio-life are 164,330 QSOs with 50 different call signs. More than 350 certificates and awards - increasingly electronic - fill briefcases and memories. To think in such categories, I would not even have to dream 40 years ago risquély.
