My name is JAN PRUMMEL (71 years old) and I'm living in Sappemeer, a small village 15 km east of the city of Groningen (in the northern part of the Netherlands). I'm licensed since 1982. In 1991 I did my examination in the highest CW standard in the Netherlands. Since I've got the full license my call is PA2PRU (included morsecode).
I have worked almost 40 years in the newspaperbusiness. First as typographer and journalist and after that the last 22 years as manager prepress. (The name of the newspaper: Nieuwsblad van het Noorden/Dagblad van het Noorden)
Now - because I'm retired - my wife (Greet is her name) and I we are doing all the nice things we can think of. A lot of time I pay attention to the radio-hobby. Mostly in CW-mode and PSK31, sometimes in phone.
