My name is John P.Theofilopoulos, SV3AQR, 10-x # 64628, born in 1969 in town of Amalias, Greece. Amateur activities began when I was first licenced (a dream since I was a child !) in 1988 at the age of 18.
I chase countries, prefixes, QSL's and photos of other hams. My logbook contains more than 150000 QSOs (mostly on paper) since my first CQ in 1988.
