Biography

ON4AT Class A License (Harec) since 1995 (previous calls ON4CAN, ON1CLD)





Hi my name is Bernard or "Bernie".I'm mainly interested in building and experimenting with antennes and making long distance contacts (chasing DX).

I got my first license ON2AMH (novice-vhf-lp) in the early nineties, quickly followed by the upgrade ON1CLD. After many months of practising MORSE (CW) I finally got my full HF license ON4CAN (HAREC – A Class) back in 1995. For a couple of years I was very active DX-ing, mostly on 20-15-10. I worked almost the complete DXCC list with a KT34A at that time on a 21 meter crank up. Mostly SSB and sometimes CW.

In those days I also had my professional career in the banking and insurance business. After a few years I had so much work to do plus a family and kids…so unfortunately there was almost no time left anymore for ham radio. I was forced to make choices and stopped with amateur radio for more then 12 years.... (Ofcourse I kept my license)



Now, many many years later, a new QTH, and starting all over again with this great hobby.



In the new QTH my wife and I love gardening (especially exotic gardening), and we have two whippet dogs ! We also like cycling, travelling and we enjoy "the good life" ... ;)

I am also a big “high-end audio freak”. I really love listening to music through the B&W diamond speakers. I am still professionally active so my days are always too short....

My story would not be complete if I did not mention my best friend and XYL since 2005, Karine “Krienie”. Always standing beside me and encouraging me in so many ways. She makes the good times better and the hard times easier ;)


That’s my story in a nutshell :) Thanks for reading and see you on the bands ! QSL card always appreciated !
