I have different accounts for each variation of my callsign (YO2MSB, YO2MSB/QRP, DL/YO2MSB/P, etc.). So please log your QSO's with me to the EXACT callsign you heard on frequency during our QSO, because otherwise I won't be able to confirm it. I've already received a lot of requests in error during the last period. Thank you!


Paper QSL's completed up to 1st of June, 2016. Will be distributed @ Friedrichshafen Ham Radio 2016.

UT & OM SOTA Tour: on 07/05/2016 I was QRV from UT / 2 summits near the romanian border and from OM / 1 summit near the hungarian border. Only 3 points but 2 new countries activated on my list. A 24 hours continuous trip and around 800km made on national roads. Well, in UT it's somehow strange to say "road" to a large collection of holes disposed linear between different places... DO NOT go there without an off-road car!

DM/HE 2016 SOTA Tour: performed on 01/03/2016 & 02/03/2016 around the city of Frankfurt am Main in DL - 7 summits, 2 days, 38 points. Pictures down here on page.

Romanian QRP Party 2016: first edition made on 06/02/2016 in a location near Turda, together with a group of QRP operators. Activated with the following special callsigns: YP80QRP, YP40QRP, YP15QRP as a multiplier SES.

YO SOTA Marathon 2015: between 10/08/2015 and 15/08/2015 I was QRV from a list of summits located in the Middle Carpathians. The team was made together with the following SOTA activators: HB9DST, K2XYL, PB2T, YO2BP, YO6HDF, YO6PIB, YO6PSX, YO8SEP, YO9IRF. 6 days, 11 summits & 92 points.

First QRPp: made on 15/11/2014 with Ljubo 9A9DX - 100mW from an Alinco DX-SR8E in S-Low mode. 4.000km/W - not bad for the beginning.

3A/YO2MSB: Monte Carlo calling! Between 07 and 11 of September 2014 I was QRV in portable from Monte Carlo. Details here:  http://www.qrz.com/db/3A/YO2MSB

FIRST SOTA ACTIVATION EVER IN YU: made by me & YO2BP on 22/08/2014 near Vrsac, very close to the border with YO. Two summits activated: YU/VO-001 Guduricki Vrh & YU/VO-002 Vrsacki Vrh.
