and thanks for your interest in the contest group 1884.
My name is Jan Booden,
Becoming a radio
amateur was a long-cherished wish since my early youth. Spending time
on my career and family with two daughters the time was scarce to study
for a license.
This year, 2018, I was remembered of this desire and did a self-study
for my exam as a radio amateur. Early November I made the exam successfully
as a Novice (N-License) and I am in operation under the call sign PD2JCB.
Although I have spent my career in the data and telecommunications,
the amateur radio hobby opened an entirely new world of experiences.
Being a member of the national organization for radio amateurs, the
Veron I enjoyed being a member of the local radio club of the Veron,
department A52. Following the enthusiasm of some of the members, forming
the operating contest Group 1884 at “Fortress Buitensluis”
here on our beautiful island,I
got their permission to join their small, but enthusiast team. They
have welcomed me warmly, and I am excited to join. I am looking forward
to work with many stations around the world on the different modes in
FM, SSB and digital modes. All thanks to my friends here at Station
CG 1884, and their patience in teaching me in the ‘dos and don’ts’
of this beautiful hobby!
Thanks for your
attention! 73, Jan de PD2JCB
