I'm originally from Germany and was first licensed in 1982 as Y31IO. This changed later to Y58IO and finally DL7IO.
My main radio interests are DXing and contesting on HF with CW being my preferred mode. But I also do a lot of SSB and some digital modes.
We have a few more YL-operators in the family with my partner ZL2YL (ZL3IQ, DL7IQ) and our daughter ZL2GQ. You will hear them occasionally with best chances during contests.
Our family own contest call sign is ZM2Y. We are working on the related contest site. It is located 20km South of our current QTH in the Waimarama Heights and about 320 m (1000 ft)asl with free views to the main radio populations. More news & results (!) soon, check www.kiwi-dx-lodge.com.
