My name is Robert Elsinga, born in 1967, licensed Harec/CEPT Full in september 2012. This was long overdue, since I already had an interrest in HAM radio when I was 20 or so. But then I was a student without much money, was drafted and served in the dutch army (as a computer programmer in a civilian part of the army, luckily), got a girlfriend (which now is my ex-wife) and a job, got married, wanted to save money to buy a house, got some kids... Sounds familiar, huh? But now at last I got my license and a HAM radio station. =8-)

My main interests are Scouting (as in boy scouts), reading, all things about communications (HAM radio, scanner listening and VOIP/POTS telephony to name a few) and sport shooting. I am single/divorced and have two kids, Femke and Sander. 

Besides being a HAM I am also a counselor at Scouting Polaris in Heerenveen, chairman of the Fries Regionaal EHV Team scouting first aid group and part of the national Scouting Nederland organisation in various positions (among other IST at international Scouting events like the World Jamboree). So it is no surprise that the JOTA is also a part of this site. ;)

If you want to know more, you will have to catch me on air sometimes, feel free to ask anything you like. I may even answer the questions. =8-)
