I was born in 1963 in Utrecht, The Netherlands. After High school and some technical education I worked in my own metal construction company. I later continued in a new company active in the M2M(machine to machine) sector. I emigrated to Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles at the beginning of 2007 where is still live with my wife Irma.
Licensed since 1979 I was mainly active with DX-ing and contests on VHF/UHF and became real active on HF and 6 meters on Bonaire.
Also a good friend of mine (René, PE1L) managed to get me active via the moon on two meters (WSJT) by activating Bonaire in 2007 as PJ4EME.
René and Hans(PJ4LS) helped me building up the station at my QTH and I am still active via the moon.
After 10-10-2010 Bonaire bacame a new DXCC so I am looking forward to a lot of activity on all the bands.
