NO QSL VIA BUREAU *** NO QSL VIA QRZ.com

 

10-10 # 76195

 

PLEASE READ MY POLICY BELOW BEFORE YOU CALL ME OR SEND A QSL:

 

PAPER CARDS: ONLY DIRECT

NO cards via BUREAU >>> ONLY DIRECT QSL cards will be answered!

>>> each band/mode will be confirmed only once! <<<

cards received directly with s.a.e. and 2 USD = confirmed directly

cards received directly with IRC = confirmed via bureau

cards received directly without USD = confirmed via bureau

cards received without return envelope = confirmed via bureau

 

>>> paper cards received via bureau = you will get NO CONFIRMATION!!! <<<

 

If you really need a paper QSL-card, you can print my card yourself from

LINK: www.hrdlog.net!

If you do not want to print my card yourself, you may send your card with a Self Addressed Envelope and 2 USD to my home address.

NO IRC's PLEASE and do NOT send me SASE with other than dutch stamps.

Nederlandse stations kunnen een gefrankeerde, aan zich zelf geadresseerde envelop bijsluiten. In dat geval hoeft daar uiteraard niet nog eens 2 USD bij.

 

PLEASE NOTE: 

paper cards for PH9HB received via bureau will NOT be processed at all!

 

I still receive a lot of paper cards via the bureau! Please be aware that:

 

I DO NOT REPLY TO PAPER CARDS THAT COME IN VIA THE BUREAU!!!

 

DIRECT cards with missing or wrong data will not be confirmed either! Needless to mention that you will get no card for no qso, unless you are sending me a SWL-report...!!!

 

Due to the volume of cards received, they will only be answered directly if sent with 2 USD AND SAE. Cards received with IRC's will be answered via the bureau, because our local post office does not accept IRC's!

I prefer electronic QSL via eqsl.cc or LoTW >>> saves time and trees!

 

EQSL:

I have ten (10) different accounts @ eqsl.cc so please make sure you send your e-QSL to the correct account i.e. use the same call as used during the QSO!!

My accounts @ eqsl.cc are: PH9HB, PH9HB/am, I2/PH9HB, A6/PH9HB, OE/PH9HB, HB9/PH9HB, EA5/PH9HB, YU/PH9HB, DL/PH9HB and 9A/PH9HB.

eqsl-cards received more than one year after the QSO WILL NOT BE CONFIRMED ...

Because: to me, it makes no sense to use a fast way of qsl-ing, if you use it more than 1 year after a qso...

 

LOTW:

I upload my log for the home-call PH9HB to The Logbook of The World!

Unfortunately Logbook of The World (LoTW) cannot be used for my air mobile QSO's! Because:

LoTW serves awards and uses the confirmed QSOs as credit toward awards.
Contacts with aeronautical mobiles do not count for VUCC (Rule 4d) nor for DXCC (rule 8) therefore uploading my aeronautical mobile QSOs is not useful to LoTW users.

 

I manage all QSL cards for our contest team PA6NH. Please read and comply with the given QSL rules on QRZ.com LINK: http://www.qrz.com/db/pa6nh

 

What I like most about HAM-radio: you can still find the good old HAM-spirit with some operators, unfortunately they are getting very rare...

Some operators appear not to be familiar with the DX code of conduct. For those interested, click on the logo/image at the top of this page!

WORKING A PILE-UP:

At times it can be rather busy when several stations are calling me simultaneously. I understand that many people want to work me when I am operating as PH9HB/am aeronautical mobile

However, you should know that it is very difficult to copy anyone if you are calling on top of each other...!!!

Especially if you have worked me (many times) before on the same band, I kindly ask you not to call me (again) WHEN I AM WORKING A PILE-UP to give the stations that have never worked an air mobile before, the opportunity to get me in their logbook...

To be honest, for me it is also more fun to work new stations, than working the same station again and again and again, while I am trying to manage a pile-up!!!

Just think how it would be for you in my situation!

HAM OPERATORS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE KIND AND RESPECTFUL

Unfortunately I hear less and less professional operators these days and ask myself turly what has become of our great hobby?

Stations that repeat their call sign 3, 4 or 5 times in one go will be ignored, since they are blocking the frequency unnecessarily, not listening to me or others and just thinking of themselves...

HAM RADIO MEANS A LOT OF LISTENING

When I finally can hear (parts of) a call sign and ask for that specific station to call again, MY REQUEST IS SYSTEMATICALLY IGNORED, resulting in everyone calling again and again and again, although I clearly asked for only one station to reply...

I REALIZE THAT THE AVERAGE AGE OF OPERATORS IS GETTING HIGHER AND HIGHER, BUT DOES IT ALSO MEAN THAT YOUR HEARING IS IMPAIRED? MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT NEW BATTERIES IN YOUR HEARING AIDS OR JUST CLEAN YOUR EARS MORE OFTEN???

This is so tyring and really slows down the whole process. I try to listen for the weaker signals in order to work them first so it really DOES NOT HELP IF YOU KEEP CALLING, because I will not suddenly give up on the weak station! The only thing that WILL HAPPEN, is that I will NOT WORK A STATION THAT KEEPS CALLING WHEN I ASK FOR A SPECIFIC STATION!!!


My policy is: Stations disturbing a QSO in progress, will NOT be worked!!!

I guess it's a general thing nowadays that people DO NOT LISTEN before they start calling...

 

To me, this is very poor operators-practice and the licence of this kind of unprofessional and ignorant operators (= mentally retarded imbeciles) should be revoked!

I am a founding member and QSL-manager of the PA6NH contest team.

 

And now some information about myself:

Born and raised in Switzerland, my first encounter with HAM-radio was as a 12 year old boyscout during a Jamboree On The Air (JOTA), where scouting groups from all over the world meet on the HAM-bands. I was fascinated by the combination of technique and languages. Communicating with other people all over the world is what I still find very interesting. I have a big passion for languages and passed my HAM-exam in 1985 at the age of 19. My first call sign was HB9SJL.

cockpit Boeing 737

 

Two years later I chose to become a pilot. Yet again a fascinating hobby where a combination of technique and good airmanship can make your day. I can play with high-tech equipment, work on the HF HAM-bands and even get paid for it...

After having flown the rich and famous on business jets for over 10 years, I now fly Boeing 737 NG (-700 and -800) for a Dutch carrier based at Amsterdam-Schiphol. As from august 2015, my new base is EINDHOVEN in the south east of the Netherlands. We now live in the province of Noord Brabant (NB), only 12 km (8 mi) east of Eindhoven.

As PH9HB/am, I have worked some interesting DX stations. I usually stay around 14.222 MHz, 18.165 MHz, 21.325 MHz, 24.985 MHz, 28.430 MHz lately also 5.363 MHz and sometimes USB channel 7.185 MHz all frequencies +/- QRM.

The onboard equipment consists of a Collins HFS900D (USB and AM only!) with 400 W PEP and a fully automatic antenna-coupler/tuner. The antenna is of the shunt-fed slotted type, situated on the leading edge of the vertical fin on the tail section (see picture below: slot on bottom end). For those of you who are interested in more info on this type of antenna, please try this link:http://www.google.com/patents/US7511674

From the end of 1987, I was inactive on the HAM-bands until I applied for a dutch call-sign in July 2008. My Swiss (F) license was good enough to get myself registered in the Netherlands. Because of my (Swiss) past, I chose a combination of HB9 and PH. PH is the prefix for all dutch registered aircraft. This resulted in a rather unique combination: PH9HB

 

At home my tranceiver is a TS-590S/100 W PEP with a HEIL Pro Elite (HC 6) headset or a modified MH-31 mike with an electret capsule. On 20 m - 6 m I use a 6-band hexbeam (broadband version) on a 12 m (40 ft) tower. I also use a 2 x 20 m (2 x 66 ft) inverted V dipole, fed with 450 Ohm ladder line from a Palstar AT1KP antenna tuner.

Thanks for looking me up!

vy 73, Jerry.
