Amateur Radio operators gathering. All the rig and antennas in one large outdoor shack.

Feel free to join this village, either if you are already a licensed amateur radio user, ever wanted to have a license, or just love electromagnetic waves! Just add the village to you user site.

The Village

Like in 2011 the Chaoswelle (Amateur Radio group of the CCC) and MetaFunk (Amateur Radio group of the MetaLab) will create a joint village with LeiwandVille.

During 30C3 and 31C3 we had a space where we could present several topics about amateur radio as a lecture or workshop. There was a large interest, so that we will order a 54sqm tent for the Camp for our self organized sessions. If you want to present your pet project in our shared hobby, just add it yourself on the top of the page (“create self-organized session”).

Furthermore we will set up a lot of amateur radio equipment. Some excerpt:


  • former Berlin Police car refitted for amateur radio operation (preview at
  • truck from Austria for transceivers etc.
  • small pavilion tent against sun or rain with some Festzeltgarnituren
  • hopefully another tent as workshop area with tinkering and measurement equipment


  • 2x 20m poles for long wires
  • 9x pole with rotatable Yagi antenna
  • dish for satellite communication and Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) bounce
  • several 6m to 12m poles with various antennas for various bands
  • a couple of smaller antennas for higher frequencies


  • 1000W amplifier (750W usable)
  • HF transceivers
  • SSB equipment
  • CW equipment
  • Digimode equipment for quite all modes
