I was born in Sarajevo the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina at that time one of the six Yugoslav republics. I became a ham at the age of 15. In my youth I operated from different radio clubs. I started in YU4EPO, then in YU4GYZ and YU4ESG.
My Bosnian call sign was T94NT.
I also lived in Germany and had a call DL1NTA.
I have been living in the USA since September of 1996. That same year I passed all Ham Radio exams from Novice to Extra including 20 wpm CW exam. I still consider myself primarily a CW operator, but unfortunately there are fewer and fewer numbers of CW operators every year. Digital modes are taking over. Due to that fact I had to adapt to the changes. In addition to CW, I work PSK31 and RTTY. I operate mobile, portable, QRP CW. I also participate in CW and RTTY contests, usually QRP category.
I live in a town house and I use stealth antennas and low power.
My base setup is an ICOM 746 PRO, random wire and SIGMA 5 vertical dipole.
Mobile/Portable setup is an ICOM 7000, Don Johnson screwdriver antenna and for portable work drive on mount for Jackite pushup pole, 32 feet wire and ICOM AH-4 tuner.
QRP setup ICOM 703 Plus, 40 foot Spiderbeam mast, 40 or 20 meters full size delta loop and End Fed Match box for wire antenna.
