Ham Member Lookups: 9447


Born in 1938 I got acquainted with SW radio after WorldWar 2 using a surplus WS38 from the British Army to listen on 40 meters where I first heard amateurs . I acquired my licence and actual callsign at the age of 16 and was introduced to DX by famous DXers, now all SK. Studies and a busy professional life as a gynaecologist at the University of Gent Medical School forced my ham activities to be low. Next to my work in Belgium I was also engaged in teaching new medical and surgical skills for USAID and WHO Geneva, mainly in South and Central America, the Far East and the PR China. My only ham activity abroad was in 1988 when I operated CE0FFD from Easter Island. It was only after retiring in 1998 that I found more time to resume ham radio. Unfortunately  ham spirit had decreased tremendously with deliberate jamming and obscene language as a common practice. Personally I feel sorry for this great hobby. My main interests are HF DXing, DXCC,  IOTA and the noble art of CW. Other hobbies are: cycling, gardening, sailing ,wines and above all my family. Married in 1963 we have 2 boys and one girl plus 6 grandchildren living within 10 miles from us. None of them showed any interest in ham radio.
