Starting the hobby in early 1962 the call OH3XZ was put into the air the next minute after the arrival of the license. I had the transmitter and the receiver ready weeks before this exciting moment, thanks to the good elmers there (special thanks to OH3XQ )
In 1960's also Finland used call areas, and when moving to Helsinki, to a different call area, I became OH2KI which today is my active call.
My focusing in this hobby was and still is "experimental" even though I mainly operate HF contests. In this field major personal achievements are those trophies won at ZB2X in Gibraltar. Another direction has been the participation in international multi-multi teams. You may hear me also in the future behind different DX calls.
Today we live in the countryside (OH3 area) in an old house where antenna forest will not grow high, as I keep this on the modest level.
You find me around 3525.14025.28025. All modes are used when the situation so requires: mixed DXCC "worked all" hangs on my wall, keeping the ears open for the new ones.
