CWops # 1890, from Kremenchuck , Poltava Region , Ukraine.

I was born in 1967.

My father was radio amateur but I have started using HAM radio only after Military service, where the big and angry sergeant have taught me Morse code for two weeks. Two years later I got my first ham license. It was 1989.

Since I have had many thousands QSOs. There are 99,9 % CW from them. I live in Kremenchuk city, Ukraine. I’m engaged in printing.

I have two places for using HAM radio. The first one is my dacha where I have ground 20 x 25 m. There are some not big antennas there. The second such place is my car in which one I use FT-100D and antenna GP MFJ. I like having QSOs from my car. I have worked with 118 countries before now. Recently my friend Slava, UW3HM, have recommended me to take part in CWT. And now Wednesday is my favorite day of week. And Morse code is on all life.
