  • About me


    On the picture on the frontpage you can see an old transistor of the brand Aristona, a SA4135. I still have this radio: it's in my living room and I regularly use it.
    I was born on the 17th of April 1961, in the city of Utrecht, Holland. I SWL for more than 30 years now, doing it with great pleasure. My XYL's name is Rita. We have three children: two sons and one daughter. Also, were having a beautiful grandson. Utrecht is the fourth largest city of Holland, with around 350 000 habitants. Utrecht has many historical buildings: cathedral De Dom is the most famous one, with a height of 112 meter.

    Other hobbies I have are mountain biking, swimming, jogging, collecting stamps and watching football. Also, I am a great music fan. My favorite music artists are Ice Cube, Tupac, Donald Fagen and Neil Young
    Several years ago, I was mainly interested in broadcasting stations, especially the more tropical bands, like longwave beacon DX. I also collect QSL, having a large collection of QSL cards and letters.
    But sadly enough the amount of stations in broadcasting DX is decreasing. That's why in 2010 I switched over to monitoring radio amateurs and also becoming member of the VERON, NL13562.
    Generally, I like to monitor HAM stations in the CW mode, using only my hearing, without any computer programs to decode the signals I received. 2,4,6 or 10 meter bands are my favorite.
    As of now, I heard a total of 250 10 meter beacons, of which around 100 are from the USA. I also received many QSL's from the operator of these beacons.

    Without the help of my daughter and son-in-law this website wouldn’t be possible.

    I hope to regularly refresh the site, like adding recording files and adding extra information. Keep checking the website!

    Feel free to contact me!
