Welcome to my short amateur-radio biography.

Over the past 50 + years, I have been involved in many aspects of the amateur-radio hobby.

For many years, I would say it was a "lifestyle".

Primary interest now in 2017 is to chase bandcounters for the DXCC Challenge Award.

You will find a few pictures below in this text, as well as at the end of the text (biography).

Thousands of operating hours have brought me some nice awards, that have pleased me a lot: 

5BWAZ PLAQUE no. 8 in the world, 9BDXCC, DXCC Honor Roll Plaque # 1, 5BWAS,

WPX Plaque - Award of Excellence, with 160 m endorsement.

All JA Prefectures Diploma, etc. etc.

US County Award from 1981, now > 2500 US counties.

I am still hunting more US counties !

My QTH – Trondheim is on the approximate same latitude as Fairbanks, North Alaska.

Active Contester for more than 40 years, with best result # 1 in the World on
CQ WW SSB Contest, SOSBLP 20 m from 9N7JO in 2007.

Started "playing" with radio on the CB band (27 MHz), as a young boy, and met HamRadio
as a Boy Scout.

Active on the ham bands since 1966.

Received the LA7JO callsign in January 1971.

First CQ WW DX Contest in 1968, from LA2T, the local NRRL radio club.

I have been active from many countries around the world, related to hollidays, DX peditions
and work assignments.

I have operated from > 70 DXCC entities, and logged > 550.000 QSO over the years, using SSB, CW, RTTY,
PSK 31/63/125, Pactor and JT9, JT65, JT6M etc.

Here are a few examples:


Myanmar (Burma) as XY1HT - XY1U in 1995   

IRAN as EP3UN in 2001 and 2002 


Switzerland HB9TQZ . Lived in Geneva for 4 years and was very active from 4U1ITU.


Nepal 9N7JO. I was based in Nepal for 4 years and made 78000+ QSOs.


2008 Maldives. 8Q7JO Stig & XYL  Jum  (My lovely QSL manager).


During my first years on the bands, SSB was the favorite mode.
Later on my favorite mode changed to CW,
- and in recent years I have started to use more of the various DIGI modes.

I have several towers with antennas from 6 m. to 160 m.

Another main interest now, in 2017 and in the coming low sunspot cycle, is to improve signals,
- both RX and TX on the lower bands.

Being now retired; I look forward to many interesting QSOs and experiences on the lower bands.

I really hope to work YOU too !

If you need a LA7JO QSL -  PSE use LoTW or direct.

There is NO backlog for direct cards for any of my many calls and operations.

After 2010.01.01 all direct QSLs, for all my calls and operations, goes to Norway - LA7JO - (only) please.

Return Postage: SAE plus 3 USD (or similar)

ATTENTION !        2 - TWO - USDs does NOT cover the World nor Europe postage from Norway !

No IRCs Please,  - as it is getting VY difficult at the post office in Norway with IRCs.


I do NOT answer bureau cards any more.
