1968, I joined the Hamradio population. My first former personal call sign was
YU4VCW and after this
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.
In 1968, I started a radio amateur course as a member of the Radivoj Rodić Radio Club YU4EBP in my hometown of Bosanski Petrovac.
YU4VCW - YU4CW
1971 is my first call sign YU4VCW and 1974 when I got my second licence "A" category and started to use my new call sign YU4CW to end 1990.
After 27-years break I reactivated svoj hobi and renew my licence, and got new personal callsign for work 9A9CW
My HAM old friends and new club friends
Radio amateurs are people you can rely on, old friends before and after the break from my radio amateur sport. After 27 years, the continuation of ham sport with old and new friends. Unfortunately some are not with us - rest in peace old friends..
