Having obtained my licences and call signs since 1978 in the following order, PE1HGP, PA3CYR, PA3G and now PA1V, things have changed somewhat in comparison to the old days. Where radio was once number 1 on my things to do list, being retired it is just one of the nice ways to spend time as a pensiopabo.

I consider myself lucky to be in contact with ample friends from the old days. There are always lots of memories (and new stuff) to share between us. Having no preference for digital or analogue equipment, any other kind of communication - be it by means of a telephone call to get in touch, Internet or social media - is all very fb. As long as it connects the sharing of hobbies, passions or other pastimes. 

Most of my radio time these days is spent on the 70cm band in DMR mode. At the same time, messing about with old school tube transmitters and amplifiers reminds me of the glory days starting out as a radio amateur. Great memories.. 

Looking forward to catch up with you by whatever means of preferred communication. 73's.

For those who are interested in old school radio development -- below are two shots of the Radio Kootwijk
building and the equipment cooling system. Both were built in 1923 as home for a huge 400 kW Long Wave
machine transmitter with callsign PCG, nicknamed "Lange Gerrit". 
Contacts with relatives in the Far East were important then.

Photo #2 was taken from the highest point of the building on photo #1. 

Photo #2 below shows Radio Kootwijk's transmitter cooling reservoir. To give some idea about dimensions,
the ground plane for the antennas reached to the tree line which is visible in the background. 

Again below, a classic picture detailing Radio Kootwijk's antenna tuning systems in main hall A (1924).
LH=connected, RH=redundant.

"Heavy Metal" 70's style. This lot was in need of different tuning.
