I became interested in amateur radio way back in 1969 and a year later I got the licence and the call sign SP5DZJ. That was in Warszawa, Poland. Pretty soon I became the President of Warsaw Radio Club (WKK) and with some help, this club became the most successful and prolific in the country. I designed and built large antenna arrays for our radio club station SP5PWK.

In 1981 I came to Sweden and because of the martial law in Poland I stayed here. Some ten years later I got a Swedish call sign, SM0TQX, and pretty soon joined the radio club of Kvarnberget SK0UX. Sometime in 1994 I designed and built a full size 40m Quad for this club followed by 3 large Quad arrays for 10, 15 and 20m in 1999. More information follows.
