Vacation October 2023 in Wadi Rum
Hans PA0SNY in Wadi Rum, October 2023

My name: Hans Poelgeest

Born at the age of 0 on August 28, 1954. Guess for yourself what my age would be now....

Speaking the Dutch language every day, and using English easily (many years in aviation). I worked for KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines for nearly 41 years.

My function was Type Project Engineer (TPE) for 747 classic, 747-400, 737 NextGen and Airbus A330.
As TPE I was involved in technical acceptance checks (ground and flight, new aircraft and post heavy maintenance), using the on board Transceivers for many Aeronautical Mobile QSO's

And as a HAM: In November 1974 I obtained my "C"-license. After passing my CW-exam in 1982, the "A"-license was a logical step. This license is now officially called the "F"- license (Full).
