I was born at 1963. in Osijek - East Croatia , where I still live today.
My first steps and contacts in the world related to electrical engineering were related in my early childhood thanks to my dad who was an radio amateur (YU2OC, call sign ex. YU) and he was made various electronic circuits and thanks to him I started learn and work in making various electronic circuits.
Very early, in summer 1978. I made my first amplifier for my electric guitar but my dad failed to interest me in his radio amateur hobby in the radio amateurworld.

Afterwards, I continued to study and expand my knowledge in area of low-frequency (audio) technology and finished electrical engineering school.

After graduating from school, I got a job and worked and gained new knowledge in the area of repairing various devices and assemblies in area of industrial electronics.

The first contacts with high-frequency technology began very late when I was at 1984. bought my first radio station for the then popular 11m band (CB band) and began to learn and expand his knowledge in this new world.
I spent a lot of time in that band and after a long persuasion of my dad I went to join our local radio club 9A1BOP
Towards the end of 1992. I passed the amateur radio exam and got my first call sign 9A7DIA. I called occasionally, but due to the specifics of my job and frequent and long absences from my home, I was not active on amateur radio frequencies.

After retirement, I reactivated myself and started working on the radio waves. I am currently working with very outdated equipment with which it is not possible to achieve some great results. In addition to fishing and self-built electronics, amateur radio is an additional hobby for me and I do practice it recreativity.
In addition to family obligations, I use my free time for fishing and at my desk next to radio stations, and I look forward to every successful radio contact.

That is, in short, my humble biography. Greetings to all colleagues on radio waves. 73 de Tihomir

btw. : I'm working on getting my first batch of QSL cards printed up.
