Welcome to our totally Amateur Radio Site,
focused on the experimenting part of Ham Radio. Feel free to explore the
technical material presented here.
The purpose of this totally
non-commercial web site is to
provide some information about VHF amateur radio technology from the
1960s to early 1980s mainly in Germany, Austria and Europe. It was a time when home
made amateur radio stations were still very common. In those days,
German firms like Semco Lausen, Braun, and others,
providing the radio amateur (ham) with high performance radio modules
and complete equipment. It allowed the technically less versatile ham to
still build a largely home made VHF receiver or transmitter and enjoy
the satisfaction of having built something himself and use it
successfully on the air. This web site tries to preserve some
information from this time period. Read more about the Semco
Company History here.
In recent years many hams have
again become interested in building home made radio equipment as many
articles in ham magazines demonstrate. Home brewing equipment is
alive and well, as any search on the Internet proves!
I hope that the material
presented here is still found interesting today, and perhaps, encourages
interest with experimentation and home construction. Many schematics of receivers, VHF
Converters, Transmitters, Audio amplifiers, and many other useful
circuits can be found here. For some circuits, ready to use PCB layouts are
downloadable and can be printed directly to presentation film on a laser
or inkjet printer.
Some historical information is
provided about the early days of the BBT (Bayerischer Bergtag). You can
read more about here.
This web site is continually updated
and expanded as much as time allows. Any material, interested
readers wish to contribute, is thankfully accepted and will be added to
Without the help of the many people
who have contributed with their time to contribute to this project, it
would have been impossible to realize this undertaking. The help of the people, who
