I was licensed back in 1994 as PE1PSW. Operating from my student home while studying Business and Economics at the University of Groningen. Very soon I became a member of the PA6C VHF/UHF/SHF contest group, later well known as PI9A. Unfortunately we had to stop due to a lack of time.
In 1997 I succeeded for the CW exam and got the call sign PA3HBH. My first contact on HF using CW was VK0IR; the first one had to be special. Nowadays CW is my preferred mode. In 1999 I changed my call into PA5TA which was much better for CW. Since 2003 I’m using PC5C.
My preferred band is 6M/ 50 MHz, the magic band. Mainly working DX and collecting new DXCC’s. Currently I’m using the Elecraft K3, a pre-amplifier and 2 times 6 element LFA Yagi’s.
In between the six meter beams you can see an 7 element antenna for 4M/ 70 MHz. For this band I’m using the IC756 proII and a ME4T transverter.
Once in a while you can hear me on the HF bands. Mostly with simple wire antenna’s and barefoot.
I'm not a card collector. For QSL LoTW is preferred. I try to upload my log regularly. Buro will work but slowly. If you really need my card the best way is to send it direct. Please do not use IRC's. Dutch post office doesn't accept IRC's anymore.
