my Name is Josef Anderl. I was born 1943 in Vienna-Austria.
Since my early youth I was very enthusiastic about radio as a means of transferring messages.
I built my first transistor radio
in the year of 1953. It was a simple diode receiver with a low frequency amplifier circuit. OC71 a germanium transistor
my pride and joy and the ruin to my scantily existing pocket money. Later on, through a Friend of mine, I came in touch with amateur
radio and I was
fascinated about it. 1961 I reported volunteerly for a longer time in the army, to get a training as a radio
operator. There I learned the CW Morse radio
operation ( Fernmeldetruppenschule FMTS ). At that time I passed the
test as a radio ham. Since then I am QRV. My first radio station ( Heathkit ) I built
together with my superior. My first call
sign was OE1ALW. Later on I moved to Upper Austria and got the call sign OE5ULL. My second System was
a SB104A ( Heathkit ). Now, I am using the transceiver Elecraft K2. My amateur radio hobby
has given me much joy up to the very day.
