Hello OM/YL,

Welcome to my biography on QRZ.com.

I'm Frans Eijgelaar born 17 may 1962 in Leeuwarden.

I'm working as a service technician and Inspector for climate installations.

Licensed since 1991. Old Call signs: PE1OAT (1991-1992), PA3GEH (1992-2001) and PA9RM (2001-2005)

member of VERON dep: A14 (1991)

Dutch QSL region: R37.

I moved in march 2007 from Dronrijp (Friesland) to Rotterdam (Charlois) where I started to set up a much better and larger station I ever had before.

I'm a DX hunter and contester. Like my station. Almost every evening I'm in my shack for 2 hours to see if there are good conditions or looking for new DX. The Optibeam is a very good antenna and very pleasant to work with.

My house is a top apartment so the antenna's could be mounted at a minimum height of 15m , after a lot of experience I have the following set-up,

Antennas HF: Optibeam OB 11-5 at 18m, dipole on 30 and 40m at 15m, windom 80 and 160m.

             VHF: 4 el beam for 6m (under construction), a 1/2 wave vertical and 13 el beam for 2m at 17m.

Rigs: Icom IC-781 and Icom IC-7400.

Microphones: Heil Pro set Elite IC and Shure IC studio mike.

For digital modes: MicroHAM micro KEYER II (on HF) and USB interface III (on HF / VHF).

Rotor: PST 61D for HF and Ham IV for VHF.

Software: Windows7 with Logger 32, HRD logprograms and Wintest 4,10 for contests.

I also like helping my friends at PI4COM with antenna work.

CU on the bands.
