Welcome to www.PA1RMY.nl
Who am I?
Let me introduce myself. I am Ron van der Meij, born (1964) and living in Leidschendam (JO22EC), the Netherlands.
I'm from a family of hamradio amateurs: My father, Jan sr., PAØMEY (SK 2004), my brother Jan jr., PAØJMY (www.triple1.eu), and my other brother Ton, PA2AMY.

In daily life I'm a production planner at Hollands largest (digital) filmlaboratory Haghefilm in Amsterdam (www.haghefilm.nl).
Are there more hamradio operators working in the professional motion picture business out there??
My main interest is HF. Mainly PSK and RTTY and mainly on the quite WARC-bands: 30 Mtr & 17 Mtr.
My other hobby is "my" football-club ADO Den Haag (www.adodenhaag.nl). As seasonticket holder, I attend, together with my son, all home games.
Also worthwhile, might be my collection of hamradio stamps. As far as I know, only a few are missing.
Always interesting my toys:
At home: Yaesu FT-950 for HF + 50 MHz, a Yaesu FT-736R with 6, 2, 70 & 23 units, an UT5JCW 70 MHz transverter.
So from 160 meter up to 23 cm are covered... (In radios, not in antennas...)
As HF antenna I'm using a MFJ-1788 Magnetic loop (40 - 15 Metres). For 2, 70 & 23 cm, a Diamond X600A triband antenna.
A simple Kathrein 70 Mhz antenna for 4 metres, completes my antenna-farm.
And I have loads of radio's to play around with.
After playing around with them, I do sell them sometimes. Please check my FOR SALE page...
In my car I use a Motorola DM3601 DMR radio. Using the roaming function, it gives me the opportunity
to use DMR all around the country without any hassle. The antenna is a Nagoya NL-350 (2/70).
For portable purposes I use a Alinco DJ-G7 (2, 70 & 23), a Baofeng GT-3 (2 & 70), an Yaesu FT-817 and a TYT MD-380 (digital).
My DMR ID is 2042130.
I'm a member of several DIGI-mode groups:
EPC # 4886 NL12, DMC # 1649 and 30MDG # 1442
