Short biography:

The interest for radio started at a very young age, with my father (SM3DIJ now S/K) having his ”shack” right beside my crib as a baby.

A Heathkit HF-station kept the bedroom warm and in an amber glow from the tubes. This was in 1971 in Strömsund in the north of Jämtland, North Sweden.

My first own ”real” radios was a pair of Lafayette HA-73A:s walkie talkies. I still have them, in mint condition and in the original box !!!

The movie "Smokey and theBandit" had something to do with this, hihi...

From time to time I was second-operator with my father Lars-Ake SM3DIJ, and it was the best thing I knew, hearing all these voices from all over the world magically coming out of the speaker…

He was allso an avid CW operator, something I just recently started training. Fun but difficult :-)

At last, I finally got around to getting my Ham Radio License in November 2007, better late than never…

I guess allways having the opportunity to run as second op with him and me being a bit lazy back then resulted in the long time it took before I got around to taking the test for my license.

Just too bad I never got to have a real QSO with my dad ,SM3DIJ, who passed away at the age of 56 just before I got my license. That would have been great but, well, that´s life I guess.

I have allways loved building stuff, and to tinker with electronics, so I am an engineer in electronics, even tough I allso have worked as a full time musician for over 10 years, and toured every continent except Australia…Hi !

I ran and owned a repair centre for audio electronics and large digital audio mixing consoles, but has now decided to totally change career and I´m currently studying to become a train driver :)

I use a lot of homebrew stuff and it is allmost as fun as the on air-time to be in my workshop and to see the little handmade things WORK for the first time.  (or, as the case have been occasionally, go up in smoke….)

I have had the honour of being President of the SKØZA Ham Radio Club for several years. Please checkit out at: www.sk0za.se

 

GL DX and CU on the air in the future !

Best 73’s to you all… smiley

Me as second OP with my dad SM3DIJ (SK) in Stromsund

Judging by the look on my fathers face, he probably thinks

that I am more of QRM. than anything else, Hi!

But this is how I started my career as a Ham :-)
