My interest in radio started with SWLing at 12 years age using my parents old tube radio and a short piece of wire. At the age of 14 the local radio club had an exhibition during the weekend and I found my new love: Ham Radio. Soon after I started to learn CW and at the age of 15 I got my own call sign SM0AJV. Only after a few days on the air with my XTAL transmitter I entered my first contest and was hooked for the rest of my life. I have been the contest editor for the swedish ham magazine for ten years and I am now teamleader for the SAC Contest Committee. I am also often working contests from the Fernebo Contest Station SK3W.The radio interest also went into my professional career with both B.SC and M.SC in telecommunications. I have been working in different radio related projects the last 35 years. I am married to my lovely and supporting wife Mari and we have two grown-up children.

I started with hamradio and contesting in 1987, and have been active continiously since then. Since 1995 I have been building on and operating at SK3W, 1h30min drive from Stockholm, where I live and work. I like experimenting with the latest SDR technology and remote operation, and keep the station fit and up and running.
I have operated from various locations of the world, mostly during business trips with Ericsson working with 2G/3G/4G and soon 5G.
I participated in WRTC 2002 in Finland.
