My real name Joshua. On the web my names are SoestPirat or DC7IA or something else… Here I write occasional notes of stuff and things. I almost never write long posts, I only mention something as a short note.
I am Member in the German Amateur Radio Club ( DARC e.V. ) since the middle of 2013, and I made my american amateur radio licence on a fieldday in the same year. I then got the German regulation authority (Federal Network agency) to recognize my licence. (I have blogged something about it. I’m going to translate it to English if someone is interested. Just let me know then.) The Agency then gave me my German call sign DC7IA.
Then, a few months later, I got the training call sign DN4IA from the Federal Network Agency. In Germany we need it to allow unlicensend persons to operate under the supervision of a licensed operator. The operator needs to apply for it and it costs 70 Euros.
In december 2014 I have sent my Open Book Review to the ARRL/VEC and became Volunteer Examiner (VE) for the us-american amateur license.
