Ham Member Lookups: 4782


Best regards from Bussum, The Netherlands, a nice little town in 'the garden of Amsterdam'.

I got my ham license in 2004 despite of my relatively old age (born in 1950). Due to study (civil engineering and business administration) and work (diplomat in the Foreign Service, CEO in a multinational company) I never had enough time to prepare for the Ham examination. Since working life is a bit more quiet now, I finally had the time to do it and passed the exam.

The equipment I am using is a Yaesu FT 1000, mark 5, field and a FT 857 and FT-817 for mobile work and for 6, 2 meter and 70 cm. Also, I like vintage rigs and present in the shack are a Heathkit line with the SB-303, the SB-401,and the SB-200 lineair amplifier, a Drake R-4C / T-4XC / L-4B and Collins rigs such as the KWM-2, KWM-2A, 312B-5, including the 30L-1 lineair amplifier. For mobile work and vacations I use the ICOM 706 with either a junior G5RV or the famous home made PA2X antenna. Sometimes I am QRV at my motor yacht "CAMORTA", using the IC-706 and a vertical marine antenna (9 M). Furthermore there are receivers like the NRD-535,FRG-9600, Kenwood R-600 and of course the radio where it all started with, a R-107 which is a military shortwave receiver used during the second world war. Recently a Flex 3000 SDR transceiver and the Icom-7300 was added to the collection.

My wife Mariette and I live in a nice house with big garden, so plenty of room for antennas. Currrently a home-made dipole for 80 and 40 meters, a G5RV, a AV-620 vertical and a 5 elements yagi for 6 meter.

Apart from hamradio I enjoy looking at the stars and planets through one of my telescopes, drive my old Austin Healey 3000 MK 3, play tennis and golf and sailing with the boat througout Europe.

Best regards and 73' from


Pilot 44
