About me

 

In 1968, I joined the Hamradio population. My first former personal call sign was YU4VCW and after this YU4CW.
YU4CW I used it
until 1990 when I stopped working due to a very complex situation in ex YU.
Now I live with my family in Zagreb, Republic of Croatia.
After a
27 year hiatus, I renewed my license and got a new and current personal call sign 9A9CW and am active again on the 160-6m bands.
After 5 years with the Kenwood line, I switched to Yaesu FTDX-101d, and now use 1.8-10MHz L-antenna via a modified MFJ differential T tuner with built-in tuning motors L and C, on the roof under the L antenna, W3DZZ for 3.5 and 7MHz, Hex beam for 14-50MHz + WARC, and EA antenna 5 el. for 70MHz, I feed all antennas with 1 coaxial cable with GB SW5. I replaced Kenwood TL922 with SPE Expert 1.3K-FA.
As another hobby,
we love traveling. I like to visit foreign countries, see sights, get to know cultural and historical sights and, of course, take photos. You can see some of them in our small photo album about the cities we traveled through.
