Biography

SWL since 1982.

beginning at the secundary high school as operator of school club station PI1GOE in Goes. I soon started SWLíng HAM bands, first with simple Philips tube broadband Rx and a homebrew RX for 20+80m In 1983 the Kenwood R-1000 was purchased which added quickly up my DXCC score on all HF bands.
During my study I had to lower activity a bit, but after finishing that I tried again some more.
After moving to our present qth in 2004 and especially after the restoration of that old farm building (listed) I bought the AR2300 blackbox and became very active Rx-ing VHF as well. A completely new challenge.

Worked DXCCs:
