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 started with some attempts with receiving of SAQ Grimmeton, SDR receivers as SWL and I have obtained my HAM radio Novice licence at May of 2017.

At present I operate SSB, FT8, PSK and occasionally RTTY modes on 160m, 80m, 40m, 30m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m bands. My occasional SOTA activities are only on 2m band with FM HT and Slim-Jim antenna mounted on refurbished camera tripod.

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 6m,10m,12m, 17m and 30m. Even with this short "antenna" I made a lot of QSO on FT8 including JA, NA stations :-)

Occasionally I operate from QTH of radioclub Omega OM3KFF with my own callsign or with rest of club members on contests with callsign OM3KFF.

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

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

Equipment

When I'm operating from radioclub QTH, I'm using fantastic Yaesu FT-1000, 100W, dipole + for digital modes MicroHam Keyer II.

My own equipment:

- Yaesu FT-891 + LDG-AT100proII automatic antenna tuner

- Baofeng UV5R handheld, Zastone ZX6 mini UHF handheld

- Yaesu FT-60E handheld + Slim-Jim (Nelson Antennas) or dual band N9TAX Slim-Jim

- Retevis RT3 UHF DMR handheld

- QYT-8900D mobile VHF/UHF + small dual band whip
