6) What has been your most memorable story related to Ham-radio so far?

On 2001 December the 18Th I had a QSO with P5/4L4FN on 28 MHz/SSB.

I needed just one call to get him into the log.

 

7) Do you think CW had it's best time since you don't need it anymore to get a license?

I am afraid that CW will be lost in the future since CW recently has disappeared from the HAM certifying examination rapidly in many countries.

 

8) How would you explain our hobby to someone not familiar with Ham-radio?

I think that explanation is very difficult with all the other communication possibility's available, like mobile phones.

 

9) Do you have other hobby's besides Ham-radio?

Yes, I enjoy playing golf.

 

10) Any final words to the people reading the interviews?

Continuation becomes power!
