FYI, dies kam von Ed aus Kanada herein.

Respekt für 43 Jahre Berufsleben, das schaffen viele Jungen überhaupt nicht 

Das Wichtigste für viele Hobbyisten: die Kuhsel-Cards.
Herr Pütz hat schon zunehmend das Ausfertigungsgeschäft übernommen,
- es kommt ja bald wieder der Petritag von Radio Oeoemrang bei M+B ...

As many of you folks know, Walter was the person behind issuing
verifications (QSL Replies) from first DTK-Julich and then later from Media 

Speaking for myself, his dedication to his responsibility to verification 
replies was a first. He will be missed and hopefully his replacement will 
carry on this tradition...

Received this e-mail:
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Customers,

Special greetings from MEDIA BROADCAST’s Headquarter at Cologne.

I would like to let you know that after  43 years on duty of which
approx. 38 years in different (technical and commercial) functions in
short-wave business surprisingly I received a remarkable offer from my
Employer MEDIA BROADCAST GmbH to realize a special form of early
retirement which I really couldn’t refuse.

As I agreed with that offer in result my last working day on duty in the
office will be Friday, 18^th July 2014.

Regarding MEDIA BROADCAST GmbH’s short-wave business, my successor will
be my colleague Michael Pütz who is well known as Frequency Manager
during the most recent “High Frequency Coordination Conference” (HFCC)
and “Group of Eight” frequency coordination business for many years
already. Please be so kind and send all your email correspondence to
Michael’s email address instead of mine in the future.  Please note
Michaels phone contact as following: *_+49 221 7101 5319_*

Volker Behling, who is also well known at customer side will be
supporting the commercial activities, too. Please note Volkers phone
contact as following: *_+49 221 7101 5316_*

Having said that, I have to admit that I will leave my long lasting
employment which was mainly focused on all aspects of global short-wave
business with a “laughing” and a “crying eye” – the laughing eye because
from that date as mentioned above I will be able to take fulltime
opportunity for new challenges and new projects which will have more
private character and which were not possible to be realized until yet
due to lack of time availability. For me, this is a real dream come
through having the complete freedom to do this now and start a new
segment in my life as having much more time available for my family
including children and grandchildren.

But also I will leave with a crying eye by closing that door behind in
my life when I think back of all those fine people who I was allowed and
privileged to meet and to talk to during meetings and customer contacts
as well as during all those HFCC conferences face to face since 1995
when I started these commercial activities regarding short-wave business.

Let me take this opportunity to say “Thank you very much” to all of you
for a long term good business partnership in the best spirit to create a
better world which should be a little bit more peaceful as it is today.

By the way, I tried to forget nobody to inform, but if it should be so,
please don’t feel insulted if I forgot somebody to put in the loop.
Smile emoticon

“Au revoir” and “Wishing well” for you all, your families and your
personal future and best wishes

Sincerely Your’s and best regards
Walter Brodowsky
Head of Short-wave - Senior Expert Sales
