Hamradio and more

what is DC6BC ?

DC6BC is the callsign of my radiostation. All countries on this globe give unique callsigns to legal radiostations. The prefix "DC6" tells that the station is based in Germany. The prefix and the suffix "BC" point to a person. I got my licence in the year 1967 after a successful examination from the German PTT.

The outdoor webcams are up and running again.

During hamradio activities I consider to have one webcam in my shack online.

New shortwave antenna

After several weeks of construction and a lot of tests the multi band antenna became finished last year. The dipoles work on the 160m, 80m, 40m, 20m and 15m band with good results. The 60 meter long construction survived the last storm which came with wind speeds over 120 km/h.

Many airplanes transmit radio signals on 1090 MHz. These signals contain the airplanes speed, height and much more information. You can receive and decode the signals. With a suitable software you can turn your PC to a virtual flight radar. The range of this radar is round about 400 km.
