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.
My new equipment consists of Kenwood line and W3DZZ antenna for lower bands 40/80m and Hex Beam covering upper bands + WARC bands.
I do my hobby from my home in Zagreb and from a cottage on the island of Vir (IOTA EU-170, IOCA CI-141) during the summer season and extended weekends of 3-5 days.
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
