Born in 1947 in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, in the UK. I moved to Canada, at the age of 17, to Fort St John, mile 47 on the Alaska highway, then to Winnipeg. I also lived for a while in the USA, Chicago,and New York. Worked at later dates in Pennsylvania, and Texas.

Came to Sweden in 1970, where I passed my "A"cert, as SM7JKD,and also hold G4HUT. I held OZ1ESN too,in the early 80's.

I qualified in Engineering, Accountancy, Marketing, and Sales in Sweden in the 70's, and worked most of my life in these fields,eight years globaly with Analytical Instruments for food and feed research. Back in the UK, 1987, I owned and ran a printing and promotional business a few years. Returning to Sweden in 1999, I started an industrial service business. I was later offered employment, in a similar field,by a local firm.I retired Oct 31st 2013

Other interests are:

Air rifle target shooting at 50 Mtrs on my range at home (mostly a summer activity) . I use a German under lever springer, a Weihrauch HW97K 5.5mm (.22), an Airmax EV 4-12 x 50 AO scope, pellets from H&N, Field Target Trophy.

Veteran moped. I have an old Puch Maxi 1979, in excellent running order. It sleeps in the garage, and offers a lot of fun. 

Gardening, together with my wife Gunn, long walks with our new puppy (Oct 7th 2015) "Svante" and I also enjoy a good book, and of course a bottle of wine.

Tornado V8, (Lotus 7 concept) factory purpose built chassi for the 4 Ltr Rover V8, Performance heads, Kent cam,Offenhauser dual port intake manifold, Edelbrock 500 carb, Headers, LT77 Vitesse "H" 5 speed manual gearbox, a 785 kgs road legal open competition car,  A bit of fun on sunny Summer days. 

I was active in Motorsport for many years, Circuit, (Single seaters),Sprinting and Hillclimbing, ( Historic GT, and sports cars) , in Scandinavia and England.

Some cars: Mallock U2, (factory prototype, used by Mr A Mallock himself), Austin Healey 100M, (chassi up restoration by myself), MG Midget, (chassi up restoration by myself), Reynard FF2000,(modified for me, by Mr Roy Lane), Honda CRX V'tec ( modified at/by Janspeed) , and the last 8 years,a modified Porsche 911. I retired from motorsport in England 1997.

I am only qrv on 80 and 40 mtrs. My antenna for 80 mtrs, September 2017, is a home brew Inverted half wave Dipole, apex at ca 55', running North/South, and on 40 mtrs, a home brew rotary loaded Moxon, (2 el monobander) built August 2011, both on my 60' tower.

My station comprises: Icom 7700, with a Rode Broadcaster mic, to a Symetrix 528E Voice Processor, an OM Power 2200 HF Linear Amp, Powermaster 2, Effect and VSWR meter. 

I live with my wife Gunn, in the countryside in SW Sweden, 13 Km SE of Landskrona. Copenhagen in Denmark lies to the South West,on the opposite coast. Malmo, Sweden's third largest city, where the 2013 Eurovision song contest was held, is 40 km to the south of me. There is a bridge, island,and tunnel, from Malmo to Copenhagen ( opened 2000).

Enjoy the hobby, best wishes...David
