Welcome to the PD0LQQ site!
My name is Jos and i live in the southernmost part of the Netherlands aprox 6 Km from the city of Maastricht in a village with about 1000 inhabitants.
My QTH locator is JO20VS, CQ zone 14 and ITU zone is 27.
This location is ideal for VHF en UHF because the height is 190 meters above sealevel!
I've been an listening amateur since i was 7 years old. and licend since 1981
I owe my hobby to my father, who is also a radio amateur with the call PA0ASA.
I can often be found on 2M.
145.450 Mhz is our home frequency of the region Maastricht.
For me, the hobby is mainly working on self-build projects, repairing and adjusting HAM equipment. I also enjoy measuring in my measuring corner. My favorite band is 20M and I can often be found there making DX connections.
This site is hosted on my own server at my home.
There are 4 domainnames running on this server namely pd0lqq.nl, mheer.com, shootingsports.nl and josvanas.com
To the right is a foto from my shack in 1980, i was then 16 years old.
