First a short overview of radio broadcasting and amateur radio history in Estonia
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.

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.
If those CB users get the radio bug for good, they will have a much easier time in completing the HAM exam.

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 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.
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.
My first HAM QSO to outside of Estonia was in 1975 with I 8 LMY
My QTH is on the north coast of ESTONIA, near the Capital Tallinn, in Tabasalu (loc. KO29GK52)
