Biography

Hello, thank you for checking my page.

I was born in 1959.

My interest in radio transmission goes back to the early Seventies when I became fascinated by the MW offshore pirate radio stations, in particular Radio Caroline with her "album format" transmissions at night. A Grundig 2053W radio from the Fifties was my companion. I soon discovered that besides broadcast there was a lot more going on on that radio. In 1980, after purchasing a Sommerkamp FRG-7000, I became an avid SWL (ONL5810).

In 1988 I've passed the technical and CW tests and obtained the callsign ON7AH.

Unfortunately, in 1999 other pursuits had to be given priority, and I became inactive. I never imagined at the time, it would be 16 years before I would be back on the air again.

In September 2016, after a house-move, I was able to return to the hobby. Now I am running a modest HF station.
