About Me

My name is SA6HAM, but some people still keep calling me Mikael for some reason; Mikael Grön.

I’ve been a ham for seven years, seven months and 17 days and it’s been a total blast from start to continuation. Well except for a long pause that started in 2018. I have been active again since I got introduced to DMR two years and five days ago.

I’ve built a couple of antennas and done a lot of listening, but – sadly – so far my only QSOs have been on two meters and DMR. I’ve CQ:ed for an hour in total, which is way too little – I know – but the people I hear are all speaking Italian or Russian so it’s really scary. Or that was the case on HF at least. It’s a bit different on DMR. I guess it’s because people know they can reach further than the local area so more people are speaking English. I actually got my first couple of international QSOs two years and one day ago!

I have three kids and spend a lot of quality time with them and my wonderful wife.

  • I am 41 years, 10 months and 28 days old.
  • Nora is 14 years, seven months and 15 days old.
  • Viggo is 11 years, 10 months and 16 days old.
  • Vidar is seven years, four months and six days old.
  • My wife’s age is none of your concern. 🙂 but I can tell you we’ve been married for 12 years, 11 months and 11 days and we’ve been together for 17 years, eight months and 23 days (but who’s counting)
