S52X, Tadej Arcon
I got interested in radio at age 12, licensed in 1998 at 17, discovered contesting in year 2000. SSB was fun but real passion became RTTY and CW.
I am always building and improving local club station S53S, joined Slovenia Contest Club and SKY Contest Club.
I operated CQ WW RTTY M/M in Dubai at A61AJ for the first win in 2005, IOTA contest from EU-130 IU3G in 2005, followed by YT6A success in 2006, third place WW in 2007 from 4O3A and another third (EU 1st) in 2008.
Contests with station development from antennas to operator motivation are a very demanding tasks but to have friends around the world is priceless.
