Who is PA8E?

As a little kid I was grabbed by the ‘radio virus’ in the early 80’s. I use to own a little transistor radio which I took with me to bed every night. Long after my bedtime I listened to local FM-pirate stations who were talking to each other over the band (duplexing). Many times I’ve tried to build such an FM-transmitter myself. It never worked very well. Also I played around with CB-radio (which was very populair in The Netherlands late 1980's) for a while to talk to some classmates. Then came the girls, mopeds and other teenage distractions. About ten years later the radio virus bubbled up again an this time I got into the study books to get my license.


My call-sign wasn’t always PA8E. I obtained my first (novice) license in 2003 as PD0JMW. In April 2008 I passed my Full-license. My call-sign changed from PD0JMW to PA1JIM. Begin 2017 I changed my call to a more convenient PA8E. Mainly because this call is easier to send in morse code.


I use as main rig an ICOM IC-7610 barefoot. My main antenna is a ZS6BKW-like wire antenne feeded with an ICOM AH-4 coupler to compensate the fact that I can't hang the complete feedline. 

My favourite mode is morse code. If you spot me on the HF-bands, it most likely will be in CW chasing DX or participate in a contest.

Hope to work you next time!

73, Jim PA8E
