Biography

My story with radiowaves has been started with my first CB radio Allamat 296 and small magnet-mount antenna. I have made a few local QSO and then definitely fell in love with radio signals. I have started with some attempts with receiving of SAQ Grimmeton, with SDR receivers as SWL and I have obtained my HAM radio Novice licence in May of 2017 which I upgraded to CEPT E / HAREC in October 2018.

I'm a proud member of radioclub Omega OM3KFF and you can hear my voice during HF contesting season on 160m, 80m,40m, 20m bands.

Building of my home QTH is still in-progress but I have small compromise short random-wire antenna with UNUN 9:1 and wire of 6.5m length from my window to my balcony. By means of some wonder it's working on 4m, 6m, 10m, 12m, 17m, 20m, 30m and 40m. Even with this short "antenna" I made a lot of QSO on FT8 including JA, NA stations and a plenty of DIGI or SSB QSO with EU stations.

I'm a small pistol or balcony station operator :-)

I'm QRV on 4m, 2m/70cm DIGI and SSB with QRP power with my mini balcony antennas and with some antenna experiments.

You can hear my voice on SOTA activities, mostly on 2m FM but when it is possible I'm QRV on 40m / 20m as well with power of 20W from Xiegu G90.

I have been interested in electronics and technologies since my early childhood. Therefore I'm fan of DIY stuff, mostly antennas, small equippment and MCu-related stuff like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ARM, STM32.

I'm a fan of computer programming, open-source technologies, Linux and server stuff.
