“Ham radio” is a popular term for amateur radio, derived from “ham” as an informal name for an amateur radio operator. The use first appeared in the United States during the opening decade of the 20th century—for example, in 1909, Robert A. Morton reported overhearing an amateur radio transmission which included the comment: “Say, do you know the fellow who is putting up a new station out your way? I think he is a ham.”[1] However, the term did not gain widespread usage in the United States until around 1920, after which it slowly spread to other English-speaking countries.

KasparThe name is Kaspar (OZ7KBR), location in Bagsvaerd in the small country of Denmark. I’ve had my ham license since early 2013. My interests is mainly digital V/UHF and HF DX.

Current projects includes: building portable APRS digipeater/iGate, expanding Yaesu System Fusion in DK with more repeater sites, building new HF antennas (magnetic loop), doing more QRP when the weather gets warmer.
