Hello! My name is Michael, I was born in the late 70s and I am located in Duisburg (Western Germany), JO31HK.

I'm just a bloody newbie – without a clue about electrics – about to take the exam to get my license, german class E. Looking to get into ham radio the hard way: .

In the future, I would love to be out and about with my and a tx in my luggage, doing radio operations high up on the slagheaps of the Ruhr area.

@mimidu Hi, neighbor. And welcome to this instance! QRP as a newbie sounds cool, but I've been there. For me it was too hard. You basically struggle with everything at once: sucky propagation, high noise floor from our 6 million neighbors, too small antennas for lack of space and lack of practice and skills. Now I'm at QRO again but have a couple of QRP trx (FT-818, QCX+, QCX mini). Anyway. Have fun studying for the exam! And have fun with Mastodon! Again, welcome! Good choice for an instance 😃


Thank you, Matthias - also for sharing your experience. I have indeed already been warned strongly. 🙈 But maybe the problems in our metropolitan area are also a good reason for me to take a closer look at CW or digital modes. I am very curious.

I like Mastodon very much. I didn't know it at all until yesterday and came here through a recommendation from an OM.

Best Regards
