Hans is a radio amateur licensed as SM5SVM in May 1989. He has a CEPT-1 license but didn't make any QSO until 2002.
He uses a transceiver Yeasu FT-817 from 2001. This transceiver is normally connected to a 9 meter fishing pole antenna on his balcony via a home built miniature Z-match antenna tuner. Otherwise it is packed in a small case together with an MP-1 antenna and other accessories, ready to go.
Hans is a member of some radio societies and clubs:
· VRK Västerås Radioklubb - Västerås Radio Club
· SSA Sveriges Sändareamatörer - Swedish member-society of the IARU
