I have been contesting since I was 15 years old, Firstly I was an SSB only operator but I quickly developed a love for CW and it is now my favorite mode to operate. I have been lucky enough to have been invited into the M6T contest team where I was able to develop my operating skills and learn from some top quality operators. Qualifying for WRTC was a goal that I set myself after the 2018 event, however after 1 solid year of contest entries COVID-19 slowed me down as I was not able to travel to contest stations. These days I enjoy travelling the world and being the unique multiplier.
Philipp was first licensed as novice in 2011 (DO6PS) and upgraded to his current license in 2013. Furthermore, he is active as DQ5M. He is really interested in contests and DXPeditions and thus running pileups. His favorite mode is CW. Currently, he is a MSc student in the field of Supply Chain Logistics. He is living in Erding, 30km north-east of Munich, in the southern part of Germany. As a travel-adict he likes to activate various DXCCs. Latest activities included 3B8M and 9J2LA.

Hello! I do radio since 5 y.o. and my contesting lifestyle started a long ago! My father Anatoly RC9O was a contestant in WRTC2014 in US and he took me there at my age of 9 y.o. I fell in love with the atmosphere of contesting and ham-radio community! My second time on WRTC was in 2018 in Germany as a guest, since that time I had a dream to take part in WRTC as a contestant! So I'm pleased to be a big part of WRTC 2023!
Here are some achievements:
I am ranked 2 in AS-2 and 2 in UA9 – Asiatic Russia.
Winner of AADC, CQWW(SSB) - 2019, WAEDC, CQWW - 2020 in Asian Zone.

When I got my license in August 2020, At first I only had QSOs on the local FM repeaters.
Thanks to a couple of radio operators from the local club I found my love for contesting.
Then I quickly realized that I needed to learn cw to get even better. So I started learning telegraphy in 2021 during my last year at school.
Since then, I am on the radio almost every weekend.
Radio has always been a part of my life. From a young age my dad (EI3KM) began taking me along to events of our local radio club. From there my passion for radio grew and during the COVID Pandemic I decided I wanted to get a license, which I eventually achieved at the age of 14. Soon I discovered my love for contesting and CW and these have been my passion ever since.
