Jan Corver, what's in a name...
   In many cases, a museum is called after a person who has made a significant contribution to the history represented by the museum. For this reason the Dutch Radio Ham Museum is called after Jan Corver (see the picture).

Jan Corver was a man who, in the early days of the development of the radio, wrote many books for radio hams and even published his own magazine named Radio Expres. It is believed that his contributions have influenced many people over the years into becoming involved with radio technology and, eventually, become Radio Hams. It was him who, in 1914, invited himself to minister Lely and proved that the law against the posession of radio receivers made no sense. Thanks to his publications, type approval for radios was dropped, unlike in other countries such as Germany.

Despite the fact that Jan Corver has played a major role in the development of radio amateurism in The Netherlands, most people today don't know him at all. By naming the museum after him, we hope to keep his memory alive.
