PAPER QSL: NO cards via BUREAU please! >>> ONLY DIRECT QSL cards will be answered!

*** Each band/mode will be confirmed only once! ***

cards received directly with s.a.e. and 2 USD = confirmed directly

cards received directly with IRC = confirmed via bureau

cards received directly without USD = confirmed via bureau

cards received without return envelope = confirmed via bureau

>>> cards received via bureau = you will get no confirmation !!! <<<

PLEASE NOTE: QSL for PH9HB received via bureau or QRZ.com-log will NOT be processed at all!

I still receive a lot of cards via the bureau! Please be aware that:


DIRECT cards with missing or wrong data will not be confirmed either! Needless to mention that you will get no card for no qso, unless you are sending me a SWL-report...!!!

I prefer electronic QSL via eqsl.cc or LoTW >>> saves time and trees!

I have eight (8) different accounts @ eqsl.cc so please make sure you send your e-QSL to the correct account i.e. use the same call as used during the QSO!!

My accounts @ eqsl.cc are: PH9HB, PH9HB/am, I2/PH9HB, A6/PH9HB, OE/PH9HB, HB9/PH9HB, EA5/PH9HB, YU/PH9HB ...

eqsl-cards received more than one year after the QSO WILL NOT BE CONFIRMED ...

Unfortunately Logbook of The World (LoTW) cannot be used for my air mobile QSO's! Because:

LoTW serves awards and uses the confirmed QSOs as credit toward awards.
Contacts with aeronautical mobiles do not count for VUCC (Rule 4d) nor for DXCC (rule 8) therefore uploading my QSOs is not useful to LoTW users.

If you really need a paper QSL-card, you can print my card yourself from www.hrdlog.net! If you do not want to print my card yourself, you may send your card with a Self Addressed Envelope and 2 USD to my home address.

NO IRC's PLEASE and do NOT send me SASE with other than dutch stamps.

Nederlandse stations kunnen een gefrankeerde, aan zich zelf geadresseerde envelop bijsluiten. In dat geval hoeft daar uiteraard niet nog eens 2 USD bij.

Due to the volume of cards received, they will only be answered directly if sent with sufficient funds AND SAE. Cards received with IRC's will be returned via the bureau, because our local post office does not accept IRC's!

I manage all QSL cards for our contest team PA6NH. Please read and comply with the given QSL rules on QRZ.com LINK: http://www.qrz.com/db/pa6nh


I2/PH9HB       see also my dedicated page @ www.qrz.com/db/I2/ph9hb

From time to time I work from our second QTH in northern Italy, just north of Lago d'Iseo, as I2/PH9HB located at 600 m (2000 ft) a.s.l. in a small village called Solto Collina. Located 30 km (18 mi) NE of Bergamo and approx. 75 km (47 mi) NE of Milan in JN55asMy I2-set up is an IC-706/100W and 6 band hexbeam, 14 m (45 ft) above ground.

What I like most about HAM-radio: you can still find the good old HAM-spirit with some operators, unfortunately they are getting very rare...

Some operators appear not to be familiar with the DX code of conduct. For those interested click on the logo/image at the top of this page!

My policy is: Stations disturbing a QSO in progress, will NOT be worked!!!

I guess it's a general thing nowadays that people DO NOT LISTEN before they start talking... To me, this is very poor operators-practice.

I am a founding member and QSL-manager of the PA6NH contest team

And now some information about myself:

Born and raised in Switzerland, my first encounter with HAM-radio was as a 12 year old boyscout during a Jamboree On The Air (JOTA), where scouting groups from all over the world meet on the HAM-bands. I was fascinated by the combination of technique and languages. Communicating with other people all over the world is what I still find very interesting. I have a big passion for languages and passed my HAM-exam in 1985 at the age of 19. My first call sign was HB9SJL.

cockpit Boeing 737

Two years later I chose to become a pilot. Yet again a fascinating hobby where a combination of technique and good airmanship can make your day. I can play with high-tech equipment, work on the HF HAM-bands and even get paid for it...

After having flown the rich and famous on business jets for over 10 years, I now fly Boeing 737 NG (-700 and -800) for a Dutch carrier based at Amsterdam-Schiphol. As PH9HB/am, I have worked some interesting DX stations. I usually stay around 14.325 MHz, 18.165 MHz, 21.325 MHz, 24.985 MHz, 28.430 MHz and sometimes USB channel 7.185 MHz all frequencies +/- QRM.

The onboard equipment consists of a Collins HFS900D (USB and AM only!) with 400 W PEP and a fully automatic antenna-coupler/tuner. The antenna is of the shunt-fed slotted type, situated on the leading edge of the vertical fin on the tail section (see picture below: slot on bottom end). For those of you who are interested in more info on this type of antenna, please try this link:http://www.google.com/patents/US7511674

From the end of 1987, I was inactive on the HAM-bands until I applied for a dutch call-sign in July 2008. My Swiss (F) license was good enough to get myself registered in the Netherlands. Because of my (Swiss) past, I chose a combination of HB9 and PH. PH is the prefix for all dutch registered aircraft. This resulted in a rather unique combination: PH9HB

Below is a bird's eye view of our village OPPERDOES (looking east). In the background you see the nearest town MEDEMBLIK and behind all that lays the IJsselmeer, which used to be the Zuiderzee in former times, connected to the open sea...



We live 1m/3 ft below sea level in the north-western part of the Netherlands, in a small town called Opperdoes, located 2 km west of Medemblik,15 km north of Hoorn, and approx.50 km (30 mi) north of the dutch capital, Amsterdam.

At home my tranceiver is a TS-590S/100 W PEP with a HEIL Pro Elite (HC 6) headset or a modified MH-31 mike with an electret capsule. On 20 m - 6 m I use an Italian made 3 element ultra beam (= dynamic 6 band yagi) see (www.ultrabeam.it) on a 13m/40 ft. tower. On frequencies below 14 MHz, I use a 2 x 20 m (2 x 60 ft) inverted V dipole, fed with 450 Ohm ladder line from a Palstar AT1KP antenna tuner.

Thanks for looking me up!

vy 73, Jerry.
