Since my childhood I interested in electronics and radio. But it`s essence was too much complicated just like a mistery. In 1978 when I was 12 years old I joined radioclub where I`ve got basic understanding of radio essence. There I was taught how to read electric shemes, to solder and understand types electric details. My uncle gave me present , kit radio parts for construction and I was very happy that time. Me and my father constructed simple radio receiver and set an antenna LW for receiving broadcasting stations. My father was first class navy radiotelegraph operator. Since 1957 to 1961 served in the Navy marine Black sea. He well understood and was able to use radio devices.
In that time I had two radios one transistor radio and one another tube radio. I often listened to illegal radioamateur`s stations. So I was very interested in putting on the air!
In 1981 one of my friends helped me to construct AM trasmitter 5 watts output. When I`ve put on the air first time and was heard in the distance of 15 km I was very glad.
For a long time I put on the air illegaly using more power transmitters. Later I begun to visit radioamateur club station UZ6HWY where was a tranceiver and solid antennas. I learned to operate with foreign correspondents in English, which I couldn`t get so easy.
In 1990 I`ve got started with novice licensed UW6HDG. In that time I worked on 160 m SSB with LW antenna. Since 1993 when USSR was reunited my callsign was RW6HDG.
In 2000 I`ve got first class category, and in 2013 I`ve got a new one four symboled R7TG, that was connected with callsign`s reform. I like chasing DX. For a long time I worked without any PA 100 watts only.
In the May of 2013 I was awarded two diplomas ARRL: DXCC basic and DXCC 40 m. I`m using LOTW.
In present time I`m using KENWOOD TS 430s and antennas Inverted V 40 and 80 m in my garden, GP 40 and 15m, vertical 5/8 on 10m
I will be very pleased to receive your LOTW confirmation as fast as possible. I think, it`s not good to make QSO and wait confirmation for half or even one year. LOTW confirmations are about 35% of general QSO quantity. Is it too difficult to click mouse button to upload your QSO`s which are waiting by anyone and impotant for them?
