I had the pleasure of visiting Hannes a
few times in 1982 at his house on
Moningerberg. At that time he was running
the Drake C line in to a Hygain quad above
the house.I remember that we worked a
station at a German base in Antarctica on
15 Metres. I probably have the QSL stored
away somewhere. Hannes gave me a very nice
French made Ferisol VTVM as a souvenir of
my visit. I still use it to this day!He
was a real Radio Ham. He had a Rhode &
Schwarz EK7 receiver, what a beauty. I
also used a Kenwood TS900 HF transceiver
in his shack, which I quite liked so I
bought one when I got back to Wales. Quite
by chance one of the locals had one for
sale. Quite a rare rig here. Hannes was a
great character with so much knowledge to
share, especially about amplifiers.
