PE4KH license plate

Hello visitor of my QRZ page! I was Koos PD4KH and upgraded to a full license with callsign PE4KH

 

Several of my technical interests kept me meeting people who are also into amateur radio. How technical things work under the hood interest me, and reaching just a bit further in understanding things.

I was only about 12 when I tried to build a bigger radio antenna to receive the AFN Soesterberg transmitter which was just out of reach at home.

I had becoming a radio amateur on my mind but lots of other interests and other things happened in my life.

In 2012 I decided not to postpone becoming a radio amateur any longer. So I started studying for the Dutch Novice license. Being a father made it hard to attend a course but I found an on-line course at Digitale Leeromgeving Zend Amateurs which helped. In march 2013 I went for the exam and passed. A few weeks later I was able to register the callsign PD4KH.

In 2015 the itch to upgrade to the Dutch full license made me take a course at my radio club Veron A08 Centrum and I took the exam in march 2016 and passed and a week later I registered the callsign PE4KH.

On the air

Setup with radio and powersupplyI am mostly active in digital modes on HF, sometimes participating in contests. The local noise at home is bad enough that SSB is usually very hard.

For HF contacts I have a simple 10/20 meter dipole antenna in the attic.

 Or I drop my kit-built 10/20/40 meter endfed out of the attic window over the backyard for just a bit better signal or working digimode contests, or use a 6-40 meter antenna that I can also tune on 60 and 80 meter for some different bands.

I am interested in amateur satellites, but haven't been active much.

QSL policy

I will upload logs to eqsl during/after being on-air and to LoTW, clublog and qrz.com on a regular basis. I like paper cards via the QSL bureau so I send those out when it looks like someone appreciates a card and I will respond when I receive those. Notifying me via e-mail that you would like a card is also possible.

I appreciate SWL reports for QSOs and will acknowledge them.

My QSL card design

I currently use a simple LaTeX-based QSL card design from which I ordered cards, shown above. There is a new card being printed which has a picture side.
