I have been a member of our national association, Icelandic Radio Amateurs (ÍRA) more or less since 1973. During that time I’ve had the opportunity to serve within the association and participate in various activities of this great hobby. I am currently serving as president of the ÍRA; my 3rd term since 2018.

We lived in the United States (1990-1995) and I was granted a reciprocal license by the FCC. During our stay I completed my postgraduate studies in NYC and CT along with my XYL, Helga María. We both loved the time in the States.

Operating: Approx. 90% CW. When possible I participate in contests; CW…sometimes Phone.
