Hello,my name is Cees, welcome to my homepage. Feel free to browse around. I live in the city of Eindhoven in the Southern part of the Nederlands near the Belgian border. I first had a C-licence in 1982 (call sign PE1HFH) and upgraded to the F-class in 1983, with my present call sign PA3CVI. Radio has been my hobby for many years and every hour spent playing with short wave radio was rewarding to me.I enjoy listening and transmitting on the HF 10M-80M amateurs bands, looking specially for DX (distant countries) while my favorite mode of making contact is CW = Morse Code). "Working DX" is just one of the many aspects of Amateur (=Ham) Radio in wich you have to make contact wth other stations in distant countries and younormally like to exchange QSL cards with the other stations as proof-of- contact. I've had more than 10.000 contacs (=QSO's) with many countries of wich 275 DXCC countries have been confirmed by QSL cards.
