My first licenceI got in 1957at radio club Piran ex YU3HIJ when IstudiedatNautical school in Piran.After thatI was in High nautical schoolin Rijeka and in YU2ARS radio club.From 1960 to 1964 I was radio officer on the merchant ships under ex Yugoslav flag.The mentionedI repeated three times ,the first time from 1960 to 1964, next period from 1975 to 1979 and then againfrom 1985 to 1987. I traveled 6 times all arround the world. One year to West Africa and on the line Meditreran - North America I went to the West Coast of U.S.A. One of my most interesting journeys was the one with an old Liberty ship named S/S "ROG" YTBR. We traveled without a radar in the fog from Gibraltar to North Europe and St. Petersburg ex Leningrad. jThe bigest problem without radar was a Chanell .After I finished to study in Rijeka my next was a new radioclub in Ilirska Bistrica YU3DGO that is very close tomy home. My home is a small but very nice village named Podgrad what means the place under the castel. Since 1998 I'm retired,but I keep myself busy, by helping my family in upholstery business and all works arround the house.
