How I came to get a HAM

 

 3 years ago I have met my boyfriend DL4EAX-Michael Funke. We talked about our hobbies and Michael told me, that he is a HAM.

 

 

This was very interesting for me, but I thought that you can only make phone contacts with station or handheld radio. I didn´t know that so many modes are possible in amateur radio.

 

In March 2016 Michael was the first time on air in our flat.

 

His radio was connected to his notebook and I heard a lot of incredible sounds.

 

 

Michael explained me, that he uses a digital mode called PSK 31. He told me that there are a lot of modes which you can use for contacting other HAMs in the world and he told me a that he participates in contests.

 

 

My interest was bigger than before
