Hi, thank you for looking on my QRZ.COM page.I was born in 1943 in the city of Deventer, starting to listen on shortwave as a teenager, later on I build my own small receiver for foxhunting. Using a pair of old German tubes: RV12P2000. The first transistors where much too expensive for a schoolboy.Hi. Then the radiovirus disappeared.... but it came back at the end of 1975. Became a member of the ARAC (Achterhoekse Radio Amateurclub), passed my exam and started 1976 as PE0HJH on VHF. I did have a lot of fun with my Braun SE400 and the famous 10 el.Veronbeam at 144 mHz. For instance: QSO's with some OH0 via tropo,2281km!! My last QSO at 144 mHz was in june 2003 with TA2ZAF(sporadic e)in Ankara,2429km!
During the year 1976 I was also learning CW and I've got my Full license in 1977. My call changed into PA2HJH.
Than I build my first transceiver, a HEATHKIT SB104. A lot of work and the years thereafter a lot of interesting mods hi That time I was using an homemade 3element 3band beam.
In 1999 my call changed into PA7WW. From that time I'm running an ICOM 775dsp with 200 Watt, later I did an update with an INRAD Roofingfilter. From 2015 I use a ICOM IC-7700 transceiver 200 Watt, no amplifier. Today I use an Optibeam 6-3M for 10, 15, and 20m. And an inv.V for 40 and 80m, and a reduced half sloper for 160m.
For several years I did a lot of contests and working DX. Over the long period being an Ham, I've got thousands of QSL cards. So please don't send me anymore!! I only answer e-QSL that's for sure!
So enjoy your hobby, hope to see you on the bands, 73's de Henk, PA7WW
