Amateur Radio

Monday, January 09th, 2012 by hinrich


After about twenty years of being busy with other things and not having the money for a hobby I very much enjoyed, I am now taking small steps to see whether amateur radio is still fun. I am optimistic with all the technological possibilities that were created the past years. Certainly the concept of EchoLink looks very interesting.

As I am not sure about the amount of time I will have, I felt it would not be wise to spend a lot of money. I have just ordered a KG-UV6D from Wouxun. It is dual-band (144-146 / 430-440 MHz), has a modern Li-Ion battery pack and seems to get some good reviews.

So, in the highly unlikely case that you share both an interest for molecular biology / genomics and amateur radio, my Dutch call sign (after handing in my German license) is PB3RXV.
