Welcome to my Website.

I was born 1957 in Wilhelmshaven, a small city in the north of Germany at the north sea.

After school and podiatry I studied computer science in Hamburg.

I'm licensed as DB7BN since 1975.

Since 1982 I work as an IT-Analyst and System-Administrator – specialized at comunication (email, Internet, Intranet). Currently I'm working as a Senior IT Manager in the Infrastracture Operation area for a Japanese company in Hamburg.

I'm married and have a son, who was born in 1989.

Now we live in a very small village, named Neuendeich, 35 km north west from Hamburg, direct at the river Elbe.

My ham radio interests are:

  • build and test new equipment and antennas
  • DXing
  • Software Defined Radio (SDR)

I also like to ride bicycle, seek Geocaches and play chess.

Hope to meet you on the bands.
