About Me

Daniel Forsström - SM4XAS / SM6XAS / SM7XAS

I got my license in 1999, when I was 14 years old. At that time I was only able to operate on VHF and UHF bands, and I was engaged in contesting with the local radio club SK4KO.

A couple of years later when the Swedish ham-radio rules changed, I was able to operate on HF bands. I bought a Yaesu FT-840, and built a two-band dipole antenna. Later on I bough a FT-817, and in the summer of 2011 my FT-897D.

Today I live in Kalmar, in the souther part of Sweden while studying maritime engineering.
