I got interested in ham radio when I was 13 years old, by reading the books of Walker A. Tompkins, K6ATX, “SOS at midnight” and “DX brings danger”. In 1976, at the age of 15 years, I got licensed as DF2RG, and started working DX the first day. And Amateur Radio is still my number one hobby, after all this years. I have worked them all, but P5. This one was missed while we were moving into our house. I am QSL-Manager for some old and some recent DX-operations. I did operate from several countries in Europe, and also as DF2RG/4S7 and HS0A. In 2011 I upgraded my WH6BAR novice license to Extra.
