Hello, and thanks for stopping at my shack!!!

My name is Eric,and I was born in 1957 at Breda in the south part of The Netherlands
SWL for about 43 years now, and still going strong.

I got my first receiver when I was 14 years old. It was the Cuna Search 9 and two years later my first HF receiver the Realistic DX 160.

Now I use the Icom IC 8600 - JRC NRD 545 - Icom R 9000 and the good old Siemens 311e. I love Tube receivers.

I am a member of the radio amateur club VERON. ( )

I am a member of the Benelux DX Club. ( )

And i am on Hamsphere call 19HS2329.

And remember: YOU DON'T HAVE TO SCREAM...... I HEAR YOU ANYWAY !! :)

Best 73's from The Netherlands and i hope to hear you on one of bands.
