Adriaan, he was put on the ground in the year 1963, in a town called Apeldoorn. He also lived in Germany for 3 years ,in a town called Zeven. But went back to Apeldoorn in 1972. And he is a ham.
In 1984 he got the call PE1KHP, and in 2000 he did changed it in PE2KP. On the old QSL card you can see the HF radio station Radio Kootwijk.
In 2009 he did used the call PE25KP, as 25 years of operation on the bands as a ham.
In 2011 he did changed it in PE2K. And that is the call he is still use on the air.
In 2014 he did used the call PE30K of 30 years active as a ham. See the QSL card.
Adriaan is 51 years old, and married to a lovely woman Linda. Rostia his daughter is married to Andres , and they have a daughter Qwinty . And soon a second grandchild is on the way to the shack.
PE2K is a full license, for all ham band. But PE2K is mostly QRV on 6m and all HF-bands, in all modes: cw, ssb, sstv, jt65, rtty, psk… for DX-ing.
PE2K is also a contesting freak, 599-001 😉
Adriaan- Mike/N8QQN here, we had a QSO on DMR on 4/12/18. I was wondering if I might ask a favor of you? My granddaughter, Addy, is in the second grade. They are learning geography by doing a class project. They are asking for postcards from around the world and the USA. When the cards arrive they find the location on a world map of where the card came from, then they look up the location and discuss it. Could I impose upon you to send her class a postcard from the Netherlands? You could just write on it that you know Addy’s grandpa by talking to him on ham radio. I would really appreciate this. Thank you. The address is:
