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 in 2017 - 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 LW-antenna via a modified MFJ differential T tuner on the roof under the LW antenna (see pictures), W3DZZ for 3.5 and 7MHz, Hex beam for 14-50MHz + WARC, and EA antenna 5 el. for 70MHz (in construction), and I feed all antennas with 1 coaxial cable with GB-SW5 Antenna Switch Controller (HA7RY),of course this is now an automatic antenna switch, because my friend Neno 9A5N installed an interface that controls antenna selection via range data with the Yaesu-FTDX101D, as well as the new G-450c rotator remote control interface.

2023 2023 I replace my old Kenwood TL922 with SPE Expert 1.3K-FA and enjoy the new Ham Radio Deluxe (HRD) software along with the new solid state technology.

As another hobby we like to travel. I like to visit foreign countries, 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 and enjoyed our travels.
