HAM activities are down to a minimum at the moment for me here
in The Netherlands. I have a license since 1974 or 1975 (can't
remember, hi). When the code requirement was dropped, I would
automatically get a full license (active on all bands allowed),
but it would have been under my call PE1CKF. I was so vain that
I wanted to have a call that would reflect that I have the code
license. I learned the morse code just in time for the last exam
taken by the authorities here!
Without passing the morse exam I could never get the prefix PA8.
... so now I have the call PA8PDP :-)
Obligatory: I try to combine the PDP-11 (and pdp8) stuff with my
HAM activities soon. I am building a pdp8/i in FPGA (with Vince),
and plan on writing an RTTY program for the -8 and the -11.
However, MixW is the program running on the PC (also soon ...).
My aim is to become active on HF using my RACAL stuff, although
I also own an FT-767GX (HF, 6, 2, and 70).
