So you want to know about me?



My life as G8DOS, G0ATT, SM7FZD and SM6FZD!

    

I am a licenced radio amateur and was first licenced in England in 1966 as G8DOS and later G0ATT and then in 1966 moved to Malmö in southern Sweden where I obtained a reciprocal licence and the call SM7FZD. In 1981 I moved to Gothenburg and changed my call to SM6FZD. I am now QRT and I have all of the amator radio bits sald for good!!

I have been active on:

  • HF mostly 20 meters for chatting

Rigs:


  • HF = FT 847

Antennas:


  • HF HIGH BANDS = ft-300 at 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters

      

I have been interested in computers ever since I was a young kid.

As I got into my teenage years my lack of income meant that I had to get a computer to the programs on a very tight budget. That's why I had to buy cheap computer parts and put them together myself.

I did some computer training on big computers but small computer I learn myself. I learned in the days before information was freely available on the internet from sites like this one.

Here is a picture of me hard at work at home in Torslanda, Sweden:

Too much time on a computer makes my brain go numb. Doesn't stop me though.

I hope you find the site informative and useful.

Best regards
