Welcome on the PA7N site!
Hello, my name is Erwin and this site is about amateur radio. I am a ham radio amateur since 1985!
My QTH is Nes near Akkrum/Leeuwarden. The province Friesland in the north of the Netherlands. My locator is JO23wb. Things I like in amateur radio: HF, QRP, QRP-kits, CW, antennas, antenna tuners, homebrew, microcontrolers, software development, Linux, 6 meter DX, Software Defined Radio, DSP, old tube transmitters, SOTA (Summits On The Air) and being /P or /MM. My main transceiver is a Yaesu FT-450D but i'm also using the QRP mcHF SDR a lot. I have a 2 x 7m dipole antenna on the roof. I use a DX wire fibreglass pole to create a vertical antenna for 40m and higher bands. I like experimenting with antenna's.

I made 6 QSO's on 40m SSB and 1 QSO on 20m SSB. Conditions were not that good. I was using the mcHF SDR with 10 Watts output. A sloping half wave antenna on 40m, and a vertical half wave antenna on 20m. On a 10 meter fiber pole.
