An interesting hobby - Amateur radio

   Amateur Radio is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use amateur radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need.

The first communications equipment of the young radio amateur in the thirties of the last century

   I built my homepage to try to give information about DX-ing on CB frequencies. I recommend free frequency usage to beginners, that way they don't have to start by getting an amateur license and bying very expensive equipment.
   I also try to explain in simple terms how this radio stuff works, how everything goes and how to build something you might need - all this coupled with my own experiences from DX-ing.
   CB waves became free only after Estonia became independent again in 1991, but even during this short time this free method of communicating has become so popular that we started our very own CB DX club CLUB 3Ø4 to coordinate everything.

   If those CB users get the radio bug for good, they will have a much easier time in completing the HAM exam.
Many of the Estonian DXers, who started on CB, have already gotten the HAM license and work now on all frequencies.

My love of everything radio related ...

   ... began as a 3 - 4 year old boy, when I sat next to my dad, watching with open mouthed awe as he built and repaired different radios and allowed me to solder any useless broken bits together for fun.
I built my very first working radio, a crystal radio, with my dad's help when I was 6 years old. From that moment on my life has revolved around electronics, both at work and during free time.

   I got interested in HAM radio in 1975, when I began working at ILMARINE tech department. A radio amateur with a call sign UR2ED got together a group of enthusiastic youngsters and that's how the club station UK2RIL was born.

   After Estonia regained it's independence in 1991 the old Estonian HAM prefix of "ES" was restored.
   My call sign now is ES2RDX.

   At the moment my main interests lie in working with small (QRP) and really small (QRPp) powers with different antennae. That goes for both HAM and CB. I like testing how far I can reach with such setups.
