Biography

I was "on the air" for the first time in the evening of January 26 1981 and was only allowed to use CW and 15 Watts only on the HF-bands (LB was a novice license back then). My first QSO was with DL5JP in Germany on 40 meters at 20:05 UTC (Imagine all that QRM I had on my first attempt!)

When I was 18 yrs old i graduated as a Radio Officer with 2nd class certificate. After a year at sea I upgraded to 1st class certificate. I was only able to sail on the seven seas for about 1,5 year. After that I had to go to the navy and do my service there. I was a radio operator in the Norwegian Coast Guard (Coastguard vessel "Senja"). Also served as a radio operator for NATO HQ in Oslo area. I worked 5 years in the Norwegian Foreign Ministry as a radio officer in charge of daily communication with Norwegian embassies in 40 countries around the globe. I then continued with the same employer as a radio technician dealing with communication both home and abroad. Total visited 67 embassies (countries).

I have been QRV from the following callsigns: LA5EBA, SM/LA5EBA, OZ/LA5EBA, OH0/LA5EBA, LA5EBA/MM, JW5EBA (Hopen Island), 8S6LL (Hallo Lighthouse in Sweden), TA4/LB2TB (Side, Antalya) and VK9CK (Cocos (Keeling) in march 2016)

Today I am QRV on all bands - 99% CW.
Member of FOC #2120
Member of the Telegraphy High Speed Club, HSC #1401

I work as a Marine Radio Surveyor, performing survey on GMDSS installations on ships and examining new SRC, ROC and GOC candidates in Norway. Sometimes I am QRV from our office in Oslo with callsign LA2A
