A one-to-one call with his majesty | the Guardian

JY1 was an enigma. When a radio ham from Nottingham put out a general call during a radio festival in the early 1970s, a man calling himself Hussein, with the call sign JY1, responded. That he claimed to be Jordanian was clear enough from the first two letters. But who, from a nation that used two or three digits as its call signs, would be audacious enough to list themselves as number one? The radio ham was confused. 'He thought that nobody has a call sign of just one digit, so he thought it was a pirate,' explains Henry Balen, of Beeston in Nottinghamshire, whose friend (who has since died) had put out the call. 'He told whoever it was claiming to be JY1 to get off the air in language that I couldn't repeat.' But the amateur radio fanatic, whom Balen's friend had sent off with such profanity, was none other than his majesty King Hussein bin Talal of Jordan, the most famous amateur radio enthusiast in the world.

"Liebe Metafunker!

Ich habe vor ein paar Tagen eine einfache Morsetaste mit Iambic Keyer aus einer alten Maus gebastelt: 
Ich weiß, dass man bei der Fingerhaltung keine besonders hohen Geschwindigkeiten erreicht, allerdings reicht mir das für den Anfang einmal :) Der Microcontroller kann ja ohne Probleme auch mit anderen Tasten verwendet werden."

After some woes with decommissioning the chimney (again after loft conversion) we finally were able to engange Rehberger Satellitentechnik to mount us their sturdy but flexible and non-invasive bracket on the roof of Metalab on Friday morning.

Bin leider zu spät … aber jedenfalls bin ich zum Amateurfunk gekommen, als mir F6IMS alias OE6FOG auf seinem alten Collinsempfänger Morsesignale vorgeführt hat. Es hat mich gereizt, sie zu verstehen. Natürlich war auch faszinierend, dass man die ganze Welt mit KW erreichen kann und dass DX-peditionen eine tolle Möglichkeit bieten, die Welt kennenzulernen. Meine erste Lizenz habe ich in der Schweiz gemacht, die zweite dann in meinem Wohnland Frankreich, und anschliessend die general class Lizenz in den USA und dann die extra class bei den US-Truppen in Wiesbaden … !

Liebe Grüße und beste 73/88, viel Erfolg!
