CS9/PD3EM 2017

Again on Madeira for the WPX SSB

See https://www.qrz.com/db/CS9/PD3EM for details.









CS9/PD3EM 2014

Between March 25th and April 1st 2014 I'll be on Madeira Island (IOTA AF-014) together with Helmut DF7ZS.I'll be operating from the CR3L shack during the CQ WPX SSB Contest as single operator all band (low power) as CS9/PD3EM parallel to Helmut DF7ZS as CQ3L. As Helmut is defending his world title, I'll be operating on the second best bands ;-)

We will also be QRV on the days ahead of the contest but that will be a holiday style operation. Helmut is so kind to show me some of the great places on Madeira because I've never been on the island and Helmut know his way around there in the mean time.

Looking forward to work all of you on the bands (80m-10m) and I'll make a special QSL card for this trip when I'm back home.

QSL will be sure via the bureau or via direct. My log will also be uploaded to ARRL's Logbook of the World. Please add 2 greenstamps to cover postage when QSLing direct as costs are very high here and IRC is not accepted anymore in The Netherlands.


TF/PD3EM 2013

Between 14 and 26 november I'll be traveling across the Southern part of Iceland together with Arie PA3DUU.¨Setup: Yaesu FT-450D, HyEndFed 10-20-40m and Spiderbeam fiberglass mast.

15-18 nov Hveragerði (locator: HP93kx)
18-21 nov Kirkjubæjarklaustur (locator: IP13au)
21-24 nov Höfn i Hornafjörður (locator: IP24jg)

The Spiderbeam mast is very strong but on Nov 19 we wanted to stay on the safe side. The mast was bended 90 degrees due to the windforce 9 storm so we lowered the mast.

The log is already uploaded to the Logbook of the World but Istill love to receive your paper QSL card via the QSL Bureau or via Direct.


The summer is starting again here so I hope to play a little (QRP) hamradio again in the Dutch polders.

The first activity was on May 5th, 2013 together with PD1AJJ. I'm using the Yaesu FT-817 at about 3 watt with a HyEndFed wire antenna on a Spiderbeam fiberglass mast. Looking forward meeting you on the bands!







Between November 3rd and 11th 2011 I've visited the beautifull island Iceland (EU-021) for a short holiday. During this holiday I've been QRV from 3 different cottages near Haugar (Nov 3-5, locator HP94EQ), Kirkjubæjarklaustur (Nov 5-7, locator IP03XS) and Hveragerði (Nov 7-10, locator HP93KX).

I've enjoyed both the ragchewing and the pile-ups during this holiday-style operation. I will design a special QSL card for confirming all the nice QSOs I had during this period. You can sent your QSL card via the Dutch QSL Bureau. If you prefer to QSL direct, that no problem via my home address above. Two green stamps are appreciated to help cover postage.

The setup on Iceland was a Yaesu FT-450 with a HyEndFed wire antenna made by Rob PA3EKE. I want to thank Arie PD0ARI for borrowing his leightweight power supply!
I also would like to thank Heimir TF1EIN and Hal TF3GC for their hospitality and coffee.
And last but not least a great "Thank You" to Seli TF3AO for showing me around Reykjavik and the great fun we had together!

Iceland is an amazing island with beautifull and astonishing landscapes. One week was far from enough to see all of its beauty, so...... I'll be back!!!


It must have been in the late seventies or early eighties when I started listening to shortwave radio. At that time I used an old Philips tube radio build in the fifties. That radio limited me to broadcasting stations but I still remember the SSB signals I couldn't copy, the radar jammers and the number stations. A little later I got infected with the ham-virus when our local scouting started with the JOTA. After that I have been inactive for many years untill the beginning of 2007. I wanted to tune the bands again and bought a Kenwood R-5000 receiver.

In april 2008 I passed the exam for my Novice license. So now I'm active on 10m, 20m and 40m with the allowed output power of 25 Watts from home or with 3 - 5 Watts when working QRP mobile from the fields in my neighbourhood.

5x5 RaDAR logoRecently we started the Lowlands 5x5 RApid Deployment Amateur Radio Group: QRV within 5 minutes after arriving with 5 watts maximum.

We're quite active /P/QRP and not only during the summertime. Last winter as well with snow on the fields and a temperature of -8°C......

So give me a call when you hear me

Hope to talk to you on the bands!
