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.

During ES season I put my 5 elements EAntenna (LFA) 6 meter yagi in the tower. During the other months I use an old FB-13 for 20, 15 and 10 meter.

Hope to hear you on the bands.
