Hello All,

My name is JAN PRUMMEL (74 years old) and I'm living in Sappemeer, a small village 15 km east of the city of Groningen (in the northern part of the Netherlands). I'm licensed since 1982. My first call was PD0MXN. In 1991 I did my examination in the highest CW standard in the Netherlands. Since I've got the full license my call is PA2PRU (included morsecode).

I have worked almost 40 years in the newspaperbusiness. First as typographer and journalist and after that the last 22 years, before my retirement, as manager prepress. (The name of the newspaper: Nieuwsblad van het Noorden/Dagblad van het Noorden)

Now, my wife (Greet is her name) and I we are doing all the nice things we can think of. A lot of time I pay attention to the radio-hobby. Mostly in CW-mode and PSK31, sometimes in phone.
