I’ve been licensed since 1990, first as ON1BBA, later as ON4VT. Interested in DXing I worked 343 DXCC countries (mixed). In the last years of the previous century I was one of the major SSTV stations worldwide, obtained several main DX awards in SSTV mode (like DXCC, WAS, WAZ #001, WAC etc etc). At the beginning of this century I suffered from a “radio-burn-out”. My shack and antennas were build down and sold … thousands of QSL cards moved to the cellar …  So far ON4VT part one !

Part two : beginning 2012 I felt a strange feeling … a few years ago my good friend ON4CGG died from cancer and I inherit his TS570 … an old 12M dipole was still in my cellar … On february 3th 2012 I made my first QSO since more then 10 years ! The first QSO was LZ40YE on 15M CW !

I feel no need to collect again tons of paper QSL cards. My QSL policy is 100% QSL via LoTW and eQSL ! My contact info is correct at QRZ.com.

    You were the first getting my SSTV picture from Svalbard 1997, and you were a very valuableteam member on the other side ot the operation.
