Thanks for checking my call on QRZ.COM. I'm an active radio operator from the end of the seventies which started from a club station (School) PI1GOE. From then on I never lost interest and went for my own call. First I passed my C-Class licence and got my first call PE1FYJ. I decided to go right away for my A class licence and got my licence in 1982 and received my call PA3BZL. I was mainly active on HF and a little on on VHF (144 Mc). After a couple of years I moved to a loction where serious HF operation was impossible. I started on 144 as an alternative. After meeting my friend PA3BIY I got adicted to hunting squares (terrestial) on 144 MHz (#635 @ 31-dec-2008). Aftre some difficult (ham) years, I got active again from my location in Lunteren. In the meantime I changed my callsign into PA2KW.
My equipment is (after trying some other models) a Drake TR7 (with all options) together with a RV7, 2 pieces of Elecraft K3's and a homebrew transverter for 144 Mc. On HF I'm using the Optibeam OB11-5 (20-17-15-12-10m), an Optibeam OB4030 (30m and 40m) and a DX-A from Alpha-Engineering (80m and 160m). On VHF I have a 16 el LBX in top of the tower.
I like building amplifiers and finished several succesfull. At the moment I have a 2x 4CX250B running on 144 (1.2 kW), completing a single YL1056 and building a new one for the HF bands.
Thanks for reading and I hope to hear you once on one of the bands.
73's, Evert PA2KW (ex PE1FYJ, PA3BZL)
