I was born in 1972, I live in Budapest with my children. I became interested in ham activities at the beginning of the 1980s, as a 10 or 11-year-old child. From the beginning, I preferred the CW operation and participated in HST competitions, where I achieved quite favourable results. In the very early 1990s, as a young adult, I turned to computer technology, which was in its golden age at the time here in Eastern Europe. So I was away from the HAM life for a few decades, but I always knew that at some point I would be active again, and I was extremely happy when I had the opportunity to hear the rhythm of CW anywhere and anytime.
I then renewed my license in 2021, luckily I got my original callsign back: HA5BMS. Since then I have been very active, despite the limited antenna installation possibilities, I participate in many CW contests (like the weekly CWTs), I got my DXCC within a month of getting my license back, and I make more than 20k QSOs a year. Furthermore, I became a member of my former club again, so if I can’t be heard with my own callsign at a CW contest, it is most likely because I am active in the HG5C team.
I am very happy to be a member of the CWops club and I hope to connect with as many of my fellow members as possible soon.This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
