Hello and thank you for looking in!

I started up with a novice license as SM6DQO when I was 15 years old in 1964. My first rig was a xtal-osc. 7W input and a BC-receiver. Every QSO was an adventure!

Military service in the Navy in 1968. Basic training onboard a destroyer in The Baltic Sea. Military radio traffic only.

Later in 1972 I joined the Merchant Navy and became SM6DQO/MM from North Atlantic to South Pacific. Now suddenly, I was a DX...

After two years at sea I got the opportunity to employment at a Coast Radio Station, Göteborg Radio/SAG. If you were found of telegraphy, a lot and for long, this was the right place to be.

In 1981 I began employment as SAR Mission Coordinator at JRCC Sweden. (Sea & Air Rescue) Once again a lot of radio traffic, but this time on VHF and Satellite Communication.

In 1989 radio opr. in The Swedish UN-battalion in southern Lebanon. On the air as SM6DQO/OD5. A superb location, with a 4 el Yagi on the beach 10 m above the sea level. A radio amateur`s dream!

Swedish UN Field Hospital Mogadishu, Somalia was my next step in 1993. Coordinating radio support on HF, VHF and SatCom. Rare on hamradio as SM6DQO/T5.

UN Rwanda Emergency Office in 1994. Swedish Support Team, Kigali. Radio and transport  mission. On the air as SM6DQO/9X5 during transports all over Rwanda.

My last vessel in the merchant navy was M/S Japan, my home for about a year in 1973-74. The ship's trade was Europe-Far East-Pacific Ocean and I had the pleasure to be on the air with its call sign SFYT from many rare places around the globe. M/S Japan was built for The Swedish East Asia Company at Eriksberg, Göteborg in 1950. Tonnage 10 000 dwt, speed 18 knots, crew 39 and 12 passengers.

The photo, off Dover, is from my very last voyage, Rotterdam to Yokohama, many years ago... But I am still on the air! Since 2007 I am active with SFYT on ham radio, from my summer-QTH in southern Sweden, with the old call sign only a little bit adjusted.
