Ham Member Lookups: 17075


I was infected by the Radio Virus in 1948 at age of 10, after having heard the voice of the MF Broadcasting Station from my first homebrew receiver: a Galena Crystal Detector.

In 1951 I joined a local Radio Club, obtained SWL callsign YU1-RS-701 and in 1953, being still too young, was licensed as operator of the Radio Club Station YU1BPQ (now YU7BPQ).

I received a personal callsign YU1KG in 1955 and since have been operating from several home-brew CW, AM and SSB equipment. Starting my electronics studies in 1956, I became active member of the Radio Club at Belgrade University, YU1EXY, well known Contesting Station.

Relocated to Belgium in 1972, operating from there as ON8YF. For professional reasons moved to France in 1978, received a temporary callsign FØEUM and after passing a French national operator’s exam in 1980, I was licensed as F6GNZ.

After retiring in 2003, I resumed my HAM passion, updating my home station and trying to pick-up the rare countries and expeditions I was missing because of my time consuming professional activity.

I am grateful to my wife for her understanding and acceptance of my Hobby. I am a father of two boys and grandfather of two grand-daughters and one grand-son.

I like travelling and operating from remote locations. And I would appreciate a QSO with all readers of this QRZ.COM page!
