Biography

I am passionate about amateur radio since childhood, but only sometime in 2016 I got back into the hobby, while I was still living aboard my sailboat in Florida. I passed my amateur radio exam and received my license in 2022. I don't have much equipment right now as I'm just making my first steps. Thanks to my friends from roWaves that always supported me, now I also have a nice (tr)uSDX to begin with. Thank you Andrei ( YO6TJJ ). I like QRP mostly, especially CW ( still learning Morse code ).

I like building my own equipment. There is a particular satisfaction for me in using homebrew gear. I'm not an expert in building electronic circuits, but I do my best to learn new things and improve my knowledge. I prefer older analog amateur radio equipment / schematics, rather than the new digital stuff that I don't like using most of the time.

The best part of the hobby, is that I made great friends from all over the world. I don’t know how you feel about it, but to me it feels like I have family relatives everywhere around the world. I think that’s amazing and that maybe people would have something to learn from the amateur radio community and the way we get along. I very much appreciate how helpful people are in this hobby. That is also why I’ve learned so much in such a short time. So I will just say a big thank you to you all, for allowing me to be part of such an amazing world.

Most of the equipment I'm building is on the DX Explorer Blog and the YouTube Channel. For local contacts, I'm monitoring 145.5000 MHz / simplex and the YO6T repeater ( 145.6625 MHz / Lacauti ), but HF I love the most.

QSL CARDS INFO

ARE YOU IN MY LOGBOOK ?

I created accounts on most used websites out of respect for the other amateur radio operators, so they can have a confirmation for the QSO depending on what they are using, in case they are running for any of the awards. I will constantly update my log and confirm the QSO on: eQSL, LOTW, CLUBLOG, HRDLOG, HAMQTH, QRZ, and QRZCQ. If you would like a traditional QSL Card from me, it would be a pleasure to send you one. I only do it by direct mail as via bureau in Romania it seems to be a little "complicated". If you want, I can send you a digital version of the image by email instead so you can print it on your own.

Please use the CONTACT FORM on my website ( https://dxexplorer.com/contact ) to request a QSL card by direct mail. Specify if you would like the printed version, or the digital email version.

Equipment

(tr)uSDX QRP Transceiver
Homemade EFHW Antenna ( Both for Home QTH or Portable )

Since I was born in 1980 and I grow up with the image of the vintage transceivers, I do have on my wish list to purchase a Yaesu FT902DM. That was the first transceiver I've seen and what made me become an amateur radio operator today. So as soon as the budget will allow me I will purchase one for my heart.
