My story

I was born in 1990. My first introduction to HAM radio was in my 11 years at former radioclub OK2RAB (QTH Velké Meziříčí). At a photo below you can see me on VHF Field Day Youth (2001). After 18 years gap i decided to obtain radio license and return to this wonderful hobby.

I got my license in 2019 and focus mostly on HF bands and CW mode. Most of my radio equipment is homebrew. As an apartment dweller i face to limited space and operate with balcony MLA antenna.

As a member of OK2KJI radioclub (QTH Jihlava) i participate on VHF contests.

I graduated on Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication. Now I work as testing engineer in R&D department. HAM radio is great source of self education for me.
