This is a very short English version of the biography of Carsten, DF2DD.

 Carsten made his first footsteps with radios in the age of 11, when he was QRV with a CB-Handheld-Radio. So he hooked on radio now for than over 30 years

After some years of experience, nice QSOs and personal meetings with youngsters in his neighbourhood Carsten decided to become a HAM-Operator.

His first Call in 1992 was DG3DCH, which was a VHF-UHF-SHF-License.

He is the main operator of DL0FDS; the School-Station of the "Franz-Dinnendahl-Schule" in Bochum.

Carsten had fun working the most common Amateur-Satellites like AO-10/AO-13 and had fun to work terrestical SSB as well.

Later on he passed his CW-exam and got his final Call DF2DD.

Carsten's station consists of a KENWOOD TS-480SAT, a AMERITRON AL-811 (600W out) an a MFJ-962D Tuner.

He is active on all HF-Bands.

Carsten uses the EQPlus and the 8-Band-EQ by W2IHY combinded with a HEIL PR781 or a Sennheiser Headset.

DF2DD is also operating portable using an ICOM IC-703.

His next passion is DSTAR. He owns the IC-2820 and the IC-E92D for this purpose.
