About me
I was born in 1948 nr Deva, Hunedoara county, Romania. My initial interests in radio began years earlier with a  popular receiver from the early 1950's .
I was enthusiastic about wireless transmissions.
  At the age of 23 I often visited club station YO2KAB in our town Timisoara when I meet for the first time YO2ABW Tavi Iovanut (silent key) - leader and first operator in CW .He has been very active in HF bands. I got my SWL number YO2-1047/TM in 1972 As a newcomer I spent almost all my free time with home made receiver (1-V-1 HI) radio on the table and headphones on my head, listening amateur radio traffic, Dxpeditions in HF bands, and learning how amateurs work. It was very good experience for the future. In 1972 I met Puiu Danet YO2ALS, Victor Kemeny YO2BCO (silent key) who was my first hamTEACHERS!  I can not forget for Florin Sarbu - YO2IX (silent key - who helped me so much in my HAM activity and my life), Oscar Jager YO2BF, George Cherchez YO2BB, Leo Genescu YO2BM, Szigy Suli YO2IS
And many others, especially from YO2 area who set my way. I would like say THANK YOU to ALL!
