Since 1980 I am active on VHF-UHF and SHF. Worked in contests with home made equipment for 23, 13, 9, 6 and 3cm.

On 17 june 2018 I worked N1NK for state number 50 on 2meter. Directly after that qso I stopped 2meter EME activity and removed the 4 x 9 elements DK7ZB xpol yagi's from the tower.

I stopped doing EME on 2 meter because the qrm from all kind of equipment in my area was getting to high and moving to a quiet qth is no option due to qrl commitment.

With DXCC certificate # 39, 1154 EME initials and 186 confirmed DXCC's on 2 meter I am very happy. Now it's time for new challenges on lower frequencies.

18 august 2020 my tower is dismantled including rotor and antenna’s for 6M and my MQ-26 for 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20M. This is all shipped to PJ4BZL in Bonaire who will be qrv soon. Berry, GL with this great setup!

I will mount a Endfet wire-antenna for 12M and 80M to complete my DXCC for these two bands. When this is completed I’ll try what is possible in this noisy area. So far DXCC completed for 2, 6, 10, 15, 17, 20, 30 and 40 meter.

Hope to hear you on the bands.
