On the Thuringia Day 2007
in our city Eisenach, we
amateur-radio operator take
this occasion to put out our
signals around the world from
our town palace.
We operated portable from the
backyard with no good conditions
to erect some antennas.
For shortwave it was place only for a 40m-band dipole.
On the VHF section we used some equipment from
DM3AWK and DL5AWI.
The Stadtschloss (town palace) is situated at the north end of
the Market place, left from the town hall and was built between
1742 and 1745. This palace was constructed to the plans of
Gottfried Heinrich Krohne, architect of Ernst August I,
Duke of Saxe-Weimar. Later Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
frequently stayed here in his capacity as Weimar prime minister
from 1777 on. Today the Stadtschloss acts as a venue for special
exhibitions and as a museum for artistic and historical artifacts
