It all began with my new job back in March 2020. As I left the electronics development department for the software engineering I still wanted to tinker with electronics. And as I thought about doing some amateur radio (HAM radio) for quite a while, I went ahead and became a member of the H24 regional district of the DARC, the German Amateur Radio Club.
Almost immediately I started learning for my novice license, class E, but due to Corona I couldn’t do my exam. Yet finally last week I got that done and got my world wide unique callsign DO1MRV.
Also today I got my checkout on our club station DL0VW by Peter DG5ACX.
