Welcome on my QRZ page!!
Being enthusiastic and passionate about radio since I was 12, back in the late '70. It was the time of the old 27Mhz portable transceivers as they were quite popular toys for kids and teenagers....this is how I started. Then CB, SWL and ham radio in 1983. Spent a lot of time doing DX, listening to broadcasting and playing with home made antennas for HF. Being off the game until recently as I was busy with other adventures and hobbies....got recently back on air and it is like going back to my childhood...still a lot of fun and the same enthusiasm of 35 years ago, I really love this hobby!!!
Operating with an old Icom IC728, SM6 Mic and 1250 Commander Amplifier; also an old Drake TR 7 with Turner mic RV7 VFO and the original external speaker MS 7.
Looking forward to develop and improve my shack and my antennas in the coming future.
I also love sailing, biking, down hill skiing, XC skiing, travelling, trekking and reading . As a passionate sailor I work in the yachting industry since ever and I have been using my radio skills also during long deliveries and Atlantic crossing on sailing boats, when SSB was the only method of communication.
I have been travelling, sailing and racing all over the world and one of my dreams is to be a member of a DX expedition on a remote island...it will be fun to reach the island on a sailing boat and then be also one of the operator on land. Hopefully one day....
I appreciate sending and receiving QSL cards via Bureau, LOTW, or direct to my address.
Enjoy this great hobby and best 73!!!
