Bernd v. Bojan (DJ7YE)

24th June 2005

Bernd was a real great Ham, full of good spirit. He died on cancer last night. He was one of my very best friends. I am deeply shocked. I dont know how to come over it. Walter, VK6BCP (HB9CAI - DJ4VN)

Bernd was one of my first CW DX contacts, in early February of this year. Our too-short 30 minutes on 20m initiated an exchange of QSL's, notes and emails in which his technical competence and gentlemanly approach to our hobby were more than evident. To those close to him as friends, my condolences; the amateur community has lost an exemplary man. Jim KE5CXX

Bernd was one of the last real Hams full of Ham Spirit and a very good friend of mine. He lived in the neighbourhood of my parentsĀ“ home where I used to live when I was a newcomer. He was the one who really made me understanding what ham spirit is. He lived hamspirit himself and was always full of help, warm friendlyness and good advices. He often invited me into his shack and I was allowed to operate with his fantastic equipment. A great and appreciable chance for a newcomer like I was. He help me out serveral times not only concernig amateur radio. I am sure the "Ham world" will get a little bit colder without him. Bernd we will always keep an honourable memory of You !
