Biography

I am born in january 1943 and started with the radio hobby in the 70's. After a period of SWL and working on CB-bands (illegal) I got my first licence in 1981. That was the "D"-license, whit the callsign PD0LUC. Nowedays this is the Novice license in my country. After a year and an other examination I got the "C"license and the callsign PE1IKJ. Nowedays this is the Full license, but then you had to pass CW-examination with 12 words p/m to get the full license.In 1983 I got the "B" license (does not exist anymore) with CW in 8 word p/m and the callsign PB0ACU. As I wanted the real "A"license I passed examination with 12 words per minute and got my Full License and the callsign PA3DNB. Since we may choose our own callsign I asked back my "B"callsign and use PB0ACU. My license has changed from A to "F-license, CW included". Nowedays CW is not needed anymore (pitty).

Equipment

My rig is an Icom IC-756 PRO III for HF and a Yaesu FT-726 R for 2 mtr. and 70 cm.
Most of the time now I work in digital modes like PSK, RTTY and FT8. My interface is a Microham USB III interface and it is working fb.
On the roof of the building is a homemade Cobweb for 10, 12, 15, 18 and 14 Mhz. There is also a vertical for 2 mtr., 70 cmtr. and 6 mtr. They are on nearly 42 meter above sealevel. Hope to work you !
