Reading Thor Heyerdahl's KON-TIKI ( Heyerdahl sailed from Peru to Polynesia on a Balsa Raft in 1947 ) got me interested in Ham Radio at the age of 16 (1958). I asked myself: How was it possible to talk in Morse Code on Shortwave, using RF Power equivalent to a small light bulb, covering an unbeliveable distance from the Pacific to the US and Norway? Kon-Tiki's callsign was LI2B. More info at www.kon-tiki.no

Four years later, at the age of 20 (1962), I received my Swiss call HB9ADP and was active in CW and AM, using a home-brew transmitter (20W 6L6 final) and a National NC-183 Receiver. Invested savings in Radio Equipment and in late 1963 I was proud owner of a brand new Hallicrafters SR-150 Transceiver,the poor man's Collins KWM-2. This lovely, 18-tubes transceiver was my very first commercial Transceiver. It's still in my possesion, in perfect shape and operational.

While working for an Oil Company and on a Military Project in Lybia from 1966 to 1969, I was active as 5A1TY. Lost call, job and equipment (Drake 4B-Line) in Gadafi's September 1st, 1969 revolution.

Active also out of Inverness, FLA, from 1991 to 1996 as KR4AN, upgraded to an extra class vanity call W4ADP. Sold FL property and tower to a nice guy from the W3 area in 2001.
