Hello and thanks for visiting my webpage. I am 19AT256 my name is Twan, 57 years old and married to Maria 51 years old.
We have two boys , Brian 31 years old and Maical 29 years old. I started radio in 1980 first only on FM with a Stabo XF2200 ,Turner plus three and a Avanti sigma 2 vertical antenna. After some time I bought a Ham Multimode 2 and also a CTE speedy amplifier and started with DXing my first QSO was with 30 division Spain.
In 1981 I joined the AT group as 19AT136 and was very active on the band till 1985 then I left the hobby. In 1993 I bought a president Lincoln and I started again with dxing, first with a vertical antenna, after some time I bought a 3 element Yagi and I was very active again.
I joined the AT group again and used the call 19AT536 and after some years I became 19AT056.
