About Me ...

Welcome to my website here on the Internet and it is mostly about a hobby that followed me throughout my life since I was a young boy - namely Amateur Radio.

I'm essentially a engineer in the field of mechanical engineering, but noticed early that I would rather work with people than with machines. I also wanted to contribute in my way of doing what I can to make our society a better place to live in. I have also always been interested in people and also why some choose a criminal path in their lives and others do not. Choosing to become a police officer came naturally to me, and this career, I have never looked back since. Through my profession, as a police, I have experienced and seen many nasty and stressful situations in our society. I have also had the privilege of working on my career and also being able to work with many different types of crime - both at national and international level. I also believe that by working as a policeman I also got a more humble picture of my fellow human beings. One could say that life was very good and I enjoyed every part of it.

During the summer of 2010, when I and my daughter were on vacation, I received my first symptoms that something was wrong in the body. I began to have unexplained pains in my feet and hands. In recent years, a larger number of medical tests were carried out, and after that I received a diagnosis of a neurological disease that was unbearable and would give me major problems in the future. In March 2012, the situation became unsustainable for me and I could no longer continue my work - I got sick leave from my work and will never be able to go back again.

The website fills in particular two purposes and these are as follows:

Purpose number 1:

Due to my illness, problems with memory have also come on more and more lately. This makes the website a very important part of my everyday life, where I can see what I've done and what I'm currently trying to achieve.

Purpose number 2:

I also use the website as a tool to inform people who do not know what amateur radio is and also give you some ideas on how to design your own website.
