Personal Info

Hi all,

Welcome to my QRZ page.

I live in a small village called Avenhorn. with 3000 inhabitants.
I am located in the province Noord-Holland, and in that province there is a County thats called West-Friesland.
In that county there is a Town called Koggenland, and my village Avenhorn is located in that town.

When I was at 7 years of age I got struck by the miracles of Wireless communications.

A neighbour in our former street was a real dedicated 3M Radio Pirate.
He learned me lots about electronics, and learned me how to build Oscillators, Exciters and all what comes with it.
Some years later begin 90's I started as a 11m Pirate.
In that time I have worked lots and lots of DX.

Callsigns I used are: 19BP01, 19SW17,19TSD001,19ET108

But then I got to know more about Contesting and Amateur Radio Satellites.

Me active during a recent 2013 PACC Contest as PE1GRJ
Me active during a recent 2015 PACC Contest PA6NH

This was the motivation for me to get my license.
In 2005 I got my license and got the callsign PD5DJ and still in use today.

I am even registered as a dutch SWL with the number: NL13677 R-46

I have got a broad intrest in Ham radio.
I like to do homebrew a lot, mostly microcontroller related hardware for Ham Radio.
Love working on HF, VHF, UHF, Satellites and working in all sorts of Digital modes.
I am also very intrested in the Low bands, < 500khz
Sometimes in the midnights I like to browse the spectrum and try to receive other active Hams on the 2200m and 630m bands, and give them an SWL report.

I am also very active in Contesting, I like to join many contests only if it is to keep the clubscore up.
You can work me during the: PACC, EU HF Championships, All Asian, UBA, IARU World HF Championship, CQ WW DX, Sprintcontests and many more


My first satellite antenna setup just after I got my license in 2005


Satellite setup late 2005 Satellite setup after I was moved to my new house 2006
My antenna setup 2006-2009, QTH Hoorn JO22MP

At the end of 2009 I lost intrest in Ham radio, and became very active in Modelcraft Helicopters and Airplanes.
Also sold most of my Ham Radio equipment. (with regret 
wink )
During that period we also moved to my current QTH, (with regret wink )

But then in 2013 I got intrested in Ham Radio again, unfortunally I now do not have the ideal location, but I can manage very well.

My current equipment Current antenna setup 2013+
