Dutch Radio-Amateur
JO32KQ Schoonebeek

Thank you for taking time to look into some info on me. My name is Gary and I was born 10th of September 1962. I was raised in a city called Stadskanaal, which is in the province Groningen of the Netherlands.

I lived there for 33 years until in 1995 I moved to Schoonebeek in the province Drenthe.
Both provinces are in the north-east part of the Netherlands. The city of Schoonebeek were I live now is situated only 2 kilometers away from the German border.

One of my biggest hobbies is radio-amateurism. This started already when I was only 10 years old, when I got fascinated by an old tube-radio that I took apart. This interest gradually increased until I was building my own receivers and transmitters.

The use of transmitters was however is not allowed without a permit from the local postal authorities, so I had to apply for a licence. Back in 1983 I did my final exam and this resulted in my call-sign PA3EXV.

I use my radio-hobby mostly to do experiments on VHF, UHF and SHF bands, were I build most of the equipment and antenna's myself. In these pages you will be taken through various projects and interrests. Also other then radio-hobbies are shown, almost all clarified with pictures were available.
