in 1957 and living in Berlin. Klaus is on the air since 1974 and also held
the callsigns DM4XIG, Y51SL and Y28XL. His main focus lies on award hunting,
IOTA, lighthouses and the WFF program. Klaus is working mostly in CW or
I wish Klaus all the best and success and want to thank everybody for
supporting me with your information.
