I was born on November 1, 1931 in Dnepropetrovsk city, Ukraine. In 1949 I graduated from high school and enrolled in Dnepropetrovsk Metallurgical Institute, which I successfully completed. In 1954 I was sent to Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan, Almatinskiy Heavy Machinery Plant (AZTM) in the design department, in 1984 I became the Chief designer of AZTM. In 2003, I retired and moved to Ramenskoe city, Russia, in 2006
In late 1946, several representatives of Dnepropetrovsk Radio Club came to our high school and spoke about HAM-Shortwave Amateur Radio and I was invited to the local radio club. In 1947, I learned the Morse code, passed the exam, received SWL call-sign URSB-5-293, and became an operator of collective radio station UB5KAD. When, in 1954, I moved to Alma-Ata the capital city of Kazakhstan, and became an operator of Alma-Ata radioclub, call-sign UL7KAA. In 1958, I received my own call-sign UL7GR that was changed in late 1993 to UN7GR . After moving to Ramenskoye, Russia, I received in 2009 call-sign RL3DY, which is used at the present time.
I use YAESU-201 that bought in the USA in 1977 and a LW antenna made with UN7QF in 2009. My favourite mode is CW yet from time to time I use SSB.
