Greetings, radio friends!
I am 66 years old and I am on air since 1974. I have a wife, three sons and a daughter. To my big regret, I am the only one of the family who is interested in amateur radio. For me ham radiomeans a lot of friends all over the world with whom I communicate with the great pleasure.
The person who introduced me to ham radio was Jan, now 4Z5CX. My first call sign was RB5CCP, then UB5CCN. In 1976 I organised a clubstation UK5CAT (later UB4CWW, UR4CWW). It was formed by a group of very skilled operators and at the same time they were very good persons too. To name a few: UR7CW Vlad, UB5CDU Andrey, UB5CEJ Vladimir, US7CQ Yury, all the are, unfortunatelly, silent keys. And those who are still QRMing on the bands, such as EA4CWW (ex EA4/UY7CW) Dima, UX7CQ Alex, RG8K (ex UT7CR) Valery, UR5CN Valery, N1YX Igor, RQ8K (ex 4K3BB) Igor, RU2FV Eugene, UY0CA Pavel, US0CD Pavel too, and some others.Working on the air actively we participated in many contests, winning some of them. All the equipment, including transceivers, power amplifiers and antennas were made by our hands. By now the club station UB4CWW does not exist but all the members of the station maintain relationship between themselves and meet each other whenever they can although some of them live in different parts of the world. Those mentioned are only a part of our great contest team and we always will remember our technicians and maintenance men.
We always should remember those who have changed our life!
Now I prefer working CW and DIGI modes on all bands. Sometimes you can find me in SSB.
Member of clubs: UCC #282; EPC #05416 (UR03; EPC Area UACHMC; DXDA-3058); DMC #1928; NDG #0093; 30MDG #2781; FH #3008

My equipment is very simple: Kenwood TS-140S and the aerials are homemade 5-band Spiderbeam 40m UP, HI-Gain DX77A, Dipole 80-30 m and Dipole 160 m as well as homebrew comp and Opto Interface circuit.
But it does not prevent me from communicating with radio fans all over world.
See you on the bands! 73! de US6CQ op.Valery
