On June 19th 1967 I received my C-License (144 MHz-up) in The Netherlands and the call sign PAoCOC at the age of 19. At the start I used to work the VHF 2-meter band quite intensively using AM and a home brew crystal controlled transmitter. After my graduation as a BSc Electrical Engineer I focused on my career and consequently the hobby suffered. I obtained however a A-class full license: "12 wpm morse code" and started operating vintage equipment e.g. Collins, Drake and military stock surplus. This gives me great joy and satisfaction. By the end of the seventies I lived and worked in the UK. The UK Home Office granted me the call sign G5MHS in those days. In July 2003 I immigrated to South Africa. I live on a 120 acres "hobby farm" on the east bank of the Klip River 30 miles south of Johannesburg.
