I was born in 1963 in Djakovo, a small town in eastern Croatia (population of about 30 000) , about 200 km east of the capital, Zagreb.
Elementary and high school I attended in Djakovo . Faculty of Electrical Engineering I attended in Osijek, 36 km north east from Djakovo, which I graduated and became an electronics engineer.
The exam for Amateur Radio operators I have passed in 1979 when I was 15 years old in my hometown radio club. The first license I got in 1982 as a YT2SMW. In 1988 I've got a call sign YT2SW.
When Yugoslavia broke up and Croatia became an independent state, in 1991/92, I got a call sign 9A3SW that I have today.
All those year I wasn't as active as a radio operator as far as I was active as a designer. I have made many electronic devices used today.
I use equipments as follows:
Kenwood TS-950S, YAESU FT-901DE, K1EL's (K10, Winkey USB) electronic keyers and many accessories.
I made an INV V end fed broadband antenna (1,8 - 50 MHz).
From the beginnig of 2010 untill 2011 I am building HF remote controlled HAM RADIO STATION for my club 9A7D which can use all members which have connection on the WiFi network or internet.
I can use remote controlled KENWOOD TS-480SAT using Ham Radio Deluxe (for Windows XP PRO) with several antennas such as: INV L for 160m, dipoles for 80 and 40 m and KT34-XA for 14, 21 and 28 MHz or TH3MH3 20 m above the ground. Antennas can be remotely switched. KT34XA and TH3MK3 beams can be remotely rotated. The system is still under construction but works wery well and stable. We (members of the club) have to improve and complete it for all HF bands, including WARCs and 50 MHz.
A logbook (part of the HAMRADIO DELUXE) which I use is set up so that It sends eQSL cards voa eQSL.cc service automatically after some QSO is completed. I update LOTW service once a month (ussualy the last day).
The remote controlled station is abt 10 km away from me and one can control through WiFi network (2.4 GHz) or through the internet.
I am active in all modes, including CW. When I work remote, it is the most some of DIGITAL modes or RTTY.
The information I have given here will change from time to time, so pay attention to it.
I look forward to meet you on the radio waves!
