I started with ham radio in 1976, 15 years young in Stockholm and was using the callsign SM0AJV. At that age you had to start with novice licence that allowed you to use only 10 Watts on CW with a crystal controlled transmitter. You had to pass 8 WPM and know some electronics to pass the test. I built a simple one-tube transmitter and my parents gave me an old Trio 9R59 receiver. The first antenna was a short wire out of my bedroom window. Since I was only allowed to use CW, I quickly got better in CW and after a couple of months I passed the highest license class in Sweden, the A certificate (16 wpm and more advanced electronics). But I had to wait until I got 18 years old before I could use my new previliges. In 1977, my family moved to Örebro and the call sign was changed to SM4AJV. I was quite active from SK4BX, a big club station with a 40 meter tower and nice antennas. In 1981 I moved to Uppsala and was SM5AJV, but didn't put up any ham station. Maybe the work at Uppsala Ionospehric Observatory was enough radio for me. After one year I moved to Stockholm again and had to return to the SM0AJV call sign again. In 1986-1990 I studied at the Royal Institute of Technology and gained MScEE, specializing in signal processing and radio communications.
