I was born in Zschopau in the Erzgebirge.
I grew up in a small village named Grießbach. I went to school in Scharfenstein, Großolbersdorf and to the Gymnasium Zschopau.
After the school i had to serve at the german army in Oberviechtach in the Oberpfalz.
Between 2001 and 2007 i studied Informationstechnik (Information Technologies) at the Technical University of Chemnitz.
Since the end of my studies i work for a Semiconductor company in Dresden in the field of software defined radio applications.
About my hobby:
In the age of 12 someone brought two CB walky-talkies. Immediately i got “infected” by the radio bacillus. After 3 years in 1996 with almost 15 i got my first amateur license with the callsign DG1YM. Two years later i did the telegraphy exam and got the callsign i still hold, DH5YM.
Amateur radio is a hobby for people interested in radio, the technical aspects ans well as the usage of radio waves. In contrast to CB radio this includes the self-construction of the transmitter and receiver equipment. But before you can start operating your own transmitters you have to successfully pass an exam at the radio regulation authorities and get a so called license.
After that you are allowed to participate in worldwide communication in the amateur radio bands that cover alle the wavelengths from longwave, medium- and shortwave over VHF up to the high microwave frequencies. The operation modes vary from traditional telegraphy (CW), phone, video but also low-speed and high-speed data communications.
Radio amateurs also operate own large data and voice networks.
Many radio amateurs in Germany belong to the German Amateur Radio Club (DARC). This club is organized in districts and these are organized in local clubs (Ortsverbaende).
From 1997 to June 2007 i did belong to the “OV” Annaberg-Buchholz (S48). You can find the page at http://www.ovs48annabergdarc.de/. Since then my base is the club of the Technical University of Dresden (S07). The Homepage URL is hier. Quite some people of S07 (and some others) form the VHF-/UHF-/SHF contest group DM7A.
