Hi there and thanks for stopping by here.
My name is Roman and these pages are about one of mine hobby.
I enjoy ham radio and electronics since many years when I was still a teenager. I started this hobby in 1981 as SWL in Amateur Radio Club SP2ZCE in Rumia, founded by Jerzy SP2DVH (SK in 2016, one of the best CW operator I have ever known).
Since that time I am a member of Polish Amateur Radio Union (PZK - Polski Zwiazek Krótkofalowców) till now with a break from 1986 to 2002 for education time. Since 2002, until 12th October 2009 I was very active member of Maritime Radio Club SP2ZIE called "Schooner" in Gdynia.
The first "B" category license I received in June 2002, than I upgraded it up to "A" category in April 2005.
What I truly love in this hobby is home brewing, I am also the 6m enthusiast. I am interested in satellite and digital modes too.
The first two ways SSB QSO I made on 21 July 2003 with the amateur radio station S58J at 21:06 UTC, based on homemade 20m/6m transverter connected to my first factory bought transceiver IC-718. The power delivered to the homemade 6m Delta antenna was only about 300-500mW.
In 2004 I joined to the West-European measuring field of the Space Shadow Project where I acted as one of the European master station.
In years from 2007 to 2015 I involved in a few radio amateur projects such:
  • 50th Anniversary of the SPUTNIK-1 and the 50 years of the Space Age, 1957-2007 (iniciator and QSL manager for 3Z50SPU)
  • European Football Championship 2008 - (iniciator and QSL manager for SN2008P)
  • The Tall Ships’ Races 2009 Gdynia - SN2009TSR and SN09H (Co-organizer and QSL manager for SN09H)
  • The 100th Birthday of "Dar Pomorza" on the AIR - (iniciator and QSL manager for SN100DP)
  • and the greatest one The European Football Championship 2012 on the AIR (Co-organizer, PR, Webmaster and additionally QSL manager for SN2012GD)
  • 90 years of IARU & 85 years of PZK (Co-organizer, PR, Webmaster, On-Line Log manager, etc.)
  • 1050th Anniversary of the Baptism Of Poland (Co-organizer, PR, Webmaster, On-Line Log manager, etc.)

Other interests: Astronomy, space technology and science, electronic music (e.g. Jean Michel Jarre).

Hope to hear you on the bands. Give me a call.
