learning progress CW

I want to work in telegraphy on shortwave mostly. Furthermore I am fascinated in HST (High Speed Telegraphy). As learnig platform I use the site lcwo of Fabian Kurz, DJ1YFK.

After a break of some months I had to start again with reduced speed.

On 2013-12-15 I reached my goal and completed all 40 Lessons with 15 WpM. Every practise text lasted 5 minutes.

heard ISS

Today at about 12 o'clock CET I could hear the International Space Station with my handheld transceiver.

As part of the ARISS project (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) the ISS was in contact with a school in France (Ecole Les Muriers, Saint-Maur-des-Fosses, about 15 km southeast of Paris). The students had prepared questions they asked the astronauts.

Unfortunately, the receiving was possible only for a short time and I missed most of the answers.

received license / call sign

This morning my call sign was available in the database of the "Bundesnetzagentur" (Federal Network Agency). At lunch the license was in my mail box. My call sign: DC2HR. Now I can start.
