QSL image for HA5BWW

I made friends with the soldering iron and radio waves in my early teens. The friendship meant a crucial impact on my whole career. I got my first callsign - HA7RI - in 1969, when I lived in Vác, 36 kilometers to the North from Budapest. I fanatically built and constructed my equipment, which - after a few hundred QSO - I dismantled in order to reconstruct them or build a completely new one. Since 1983 I have been using original YAESU equipment (the first was an FT102 the last is FT990). In 1990 I moved back to the capital and HA5BWW became my new call. I live in a ten-storey building on the top of which I erected my antennas. I usually operate in CW mode. I am rarely in SSB as I do not favour it too much. I have few satellite contacts (via RS12) on HF. There are a few hundred RTTY-QSO in my log. I have started to take part in the Hungarian HST championship recently. I have won the Budapest championship twice and have won a second and a third place in the Hungarian championship. I served in the army for 31 years and took an early retirement in 1996. Family "results": XYL (since 1967), two daughters and two grandchildren. Hopefully I will some more... Yes! At 11, November 2009 was born our third grandchild. She's name is: Luca (Lucia). Beautiful!

Since 2004 on the contests I'm using my HA5W contest-call.

About a month I changed my "old", but excellent FT-990 to an IC-756PRO, with an INRAD-filter. Because of my high-level noises this change was necessary. A new world opened for me.

My antennas are: paralell-inverted Vee-s for 3.5-7-10 Mc/s, Butternut HF-9V to 6 meters. All up at more, than 30 meters: on the top of our building. For 6 meters a rotary HB9CV.
