I was born in Copenhagen Denmark, in March 1963. It was a very cold evening and snowstorm outside.
As 14 years old I get my ham license(OZ1DJJ). From the beginning is was the strange propagation on VHF like auroral, ES and Trope etc, there was my main interests. Later I was member of OZ7UHF Club where interest was primly EME from 8 Meter Dish on 432 MHz.
When I was 22 years old I try to search new opportunity on QRL, and move to Greenland. I was living there in South OX in a small town "Qaqortoq" for 2 1/2 years. In Denmark it was not legal to use 50Mhz, but in Greenland it has be permitted for many years and I was very excite to try this VHF band who was complete new for me.
OX3LX in GP60
After almost 2½ Years in South Greenland it was time to return to the real world so I move back to Denmark but stay in the same company , and my QRL still keeping sending me to Greenland for time to time so I am (OX3LX) still QRV from different location on East, West, North and South Greenland.
One of my trip during my work was taking me to East Greenland WWL: HP90 this is nearest point to Europe you can get to in Greenland. It was my plan to try work MS(metor scatter) on 144Mhz. I did work SM2CEW and LA0BY and GM on High speed CW 1000lpm with 350W and 10 elm yagi. during persiderne in August.
I have been active on 6m from many different location some places nothing or only a few QSO but anyway I still manage to put some stations in my log. Status in 1999 was about 848 6m QSO's all on Es or AuE
In some years I have wonder how many openings on 6m there never have been discover during low activity from OX, I did have this idea to setup a 6m beacon on the East coast of Greenland to see how many openings there was from there. From East Greenland it is possible to reach Europe on single ES'hop. OX3LG Michael did start to work in same QRL as me. I did tell Michael about my beacon ideas and after a week or so Michel told me he was starting to build new beacon. Project plan was to put new beacon with call OX3SIX into service in 1998 but during bad weather (ice and snow) is was not possible, so in 1999 Michel OX3LG and OX3UB Birger install new OX3SIX/B in 1500 Meter A.S.L QRG: 50.012 Mhz, PWR:100W and Dipole.
OX2K DXpedtion was a great success we where very lucky with propagation on 6m where we work about 460 QSO and on EME 2m:40 QSO 70cm:40 QSO and on 23cm: 175 QSO
