I am born in 1965, have a wife and two children, and I am living in a village about 25 kilometers east from Rotterdam.Ibecamea ham in 1987 (novice license in 3 months only). In 1990 I passed the examination for F. After this I sold all of my equipment as I met my wife and we started to have a family. In 1992 I started up the radiohobby again with a VHF transceiver which I lent from a fellow ham. In 1998 I got a bad illness, a streptococke infection and I got in a coma for two weeks. When I woke up again I could only move my head and I had 8 operations on ICU as they were afraid of losing one of my legs and life. After a long period of recovery I began to be more active on VHF. Finally after some years of saving money I was able to buy a HF transceiver, a Yaesu FT897.
Due to my coma the doctors found out that I also have a none born braindamage due to shortage of air for about 36 hours. This is frustrating me as I forget a lot of things like CW what I have learned. Other things are that I am disabled to work since 2000 and I cannot walk more than 100 meters. I also have a bad arm due to an accident in 1992 so I am doing CW with my computer and a program.
