Hello, many thanks for visiting this page!
Please visit also my online publication dedicated to amateur radio at http://yo4px.blogspot.ro (Google Translations available)
750 articles in practically all the facets of the hobby: videos, maps, DXpeditions, international amateur radio news, operating practices, ham softwares, DX Calendar, the Conversation Guide in six languages, DXCC entity list, CQ Zones list, ITU Zones list, useful links (national societies' websites, ham radio magazines and websites, information bulletins, clubs, organizations and foundations, equipment manufacturers and dealers), ham celebrities, ham humour a.o. A Google Translator is available on the top of all pages. The Index of the articles, ranged in seven comprehensive thematic chapters, is here.
I am licensed since 1980 after 17 years of struggle with the former communist authorities and I have achieved "double" 8BDXCC (more than 200 entities on each of the eight bands), DXCC Mixed, CW, SSB and RTTY (RTTY DXCC No.131) using no more than 100 watts and simple antennae (dipoles, verticals). The Honor Roll plaque is on the wall since November 13, 2012 after 30 years of DX hunting and I received the Challenge plaque in February 2013.
I am using now TEN TEC OMNI V as a base station and an FT-897 as a backup rig, for alternative activity from my countryside QTH and for 50 MHz. I enjoy CW DXing, but I am active occasionally in SSB and digital modes too.
Operating from the countryside, my alternative QTH, in the village Istria, 50 km. north of the main location Constanta, in the Natural Reserve of Danube Delta (YOFF-021)
I am a professional translator for Romanian, English, French, German and Hungarian, a writer and a journalist. I published in Romanian hundreds of articles about ham radio (own writings and translations) in magazines and on websites and a Conversation Guide for radio amateurs in 6 languages, available also online from the menu of my publication. Besides the phrases in the six languages it contains their phonetical transcriptions into Romanian.
Three articles were published in English translation on several websites and magazines:
DICTATORS AND AMATEUR RADIO
(published in the April 2010 edition of the CQ Magazine)
ERRARE HUMANUM EST (To err is human)
(published in the June 2010 edition of WorldRadio Online)
THE RACE WITH OBSTACLES
All three articles can be found now on my website at this address.
Educational amateur radio literature translated into Romanian:
My QSL policy: I don't collect QSL cards these days. Also, I am NOT on eQSL, LoTW or in any QSL bureau system. If you need my card send a note with the details of our QSO to the above address, enclosing a self addressed envelope and sufficient funds to cover return postage (frais de reponse, Antwortspesen) (no IRCs please) and you will receive my card on the same way.
See you on the bands!
