Today I remember my father, he died in 1999 on August 9. I still miss him, he was a good father en a very nice man. He was also a ham radio amateur PDØDCZ. In the early eighties we had several skeds on 2 meter band. I like this old photo when he was 19 years old and joining the Dutch Royal Navy in 1939. From 1942 till August 1945 he was prisoner of war in a Japanese camp Pakanbaru on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. This photo was taken just before he left the Netherlands in 1939.
Today poor conditions, but I did work OK1FIM and YL2NX with JT65 and ED5KB with SSB on 20 meter.
