CWops # 1810, from Poltava , Poltava , Ukraine.

I was born and raised in a small old town in the Poltava region, located on the hills near the river.

While studying photography at the station of young technicians, I first saw the antennas, and then the equipment of the collective radio station that was located in this building. I studied in the sixth grade of the school when I came to the collective radio station UB4HWO. Since that time, I started working on the air, discovered the world of radio waves, began to study the Morse code.

Given that I was a “fan” of radio, for a long time (before graduating from school in 1988 and getting my own callsign UB5HMS), I was the headman on a collective radio station. Then the institute, where I took part in organizing a collective radio station. We made equipment, antennas, worked on the air mainly Morse code on a self-made manipulator made of a relay.

Unfortunately, after graduating from the institute for a long time I did not have the opportunity to work on air. But I always wanted to go back and so I kept my license and callsign, sometimes I spent several QSO.

Starting in 2013, I began to work more actively on the air, the period of my return to the radio began, which I am very pleased with. I have restored the knowledge of CW and continue to improve, I get a lot of pleasure from it.

I am sincerely glad that I was accepted as a member of CWops, it is really important for me and I will try to justify the trust of people who believed in me.

This is my story, probably similar to the stories of other people who like their favorite hobby.
