Just a few informations about me.
I was born in november 1962 in Maribor. At the secondary school in Ljubljana in 1977 I have got my first licence and YU3TGT call sign. After secondary school in the year 1984 I graduated at Air tehnical military academy in Sarajevo on the field of telecomunications. There I was active at the radio club YU4EEE. After that, from the year 1984 to 1989 I was working in Yugoslav army and I was living in Tuzla and Belgrade, but I was not active as a HAM. I became active again in 1989 when I moved from Belgrade to Ljubljana where I got YT3HA call sign. By Slovenia getting independent state in 1991 I got new call sign S52HA. In the year 1993 I moved with my family (wife, doughter and son) from Ljubljana to my present location in small wilage Stra�e. The wilage of around 30 houses lies on small hill 350 ASL 22 km south - east of Maribor.
Picture of location some years back with TH6DXX on tower:

Second panoramic picture in in the direction to the suth -west, west and noth-west.
Years back Igot S52V call sign. Also my son Martin got his call sign S52MTT and wife Jasna,her call is S52CJC.
Picture of me and my son and the dog LeI have made 12 meter home made cranck up tower (two sections one going inside the other), few HF antennas and few manualy and memory tuned amplifiers with stepper motors and microkontrolers usign Russian triode and tetrode tubes like GS-31b, GS-35b, GU74b, GU84b, GU77b.
Below are pictures of finished home made memory tuned legal limit QRO's with GU84b tetrode and almoust finishedQRO which is also memory tuned amplifier but with GU77b tetrode. In both amplifiers there are 3 stepper motors to turn TUNE and LOAD capacitors and16 positions Centralab band switch. They can be also manualy tuned with optical shaft encoders on the front side. The microcontroler is always measuring input RF frequency anf if it sense the frequency change for more than 25 or 50kHz (depends on bands) it adjust TUNE, LOAD an BAND speppers on memorized positions. No other control line between transciever and QRO is needed, so no problem if the transciever is changed.
Last working configuration is ICOM 756 PRO3, KT-36XA at 12m and 2 home made memory tuned QRO's with GU-84 and GU-77b tetrodes.
