I was born in Zagreb, Croatia 1974.
Started with Ham radio 1987 in Prijedor, Bosnia and Herzegovina, operating from Club YU4JHI/YZ4X. Get into contesting in 1998 mostly in local HF contest and VHF!
My first Single Op entry was on low power 80m in WPX SSB 1989. Joined for first time M/M YT2B team 1990 for CQ WW SSB!
Sometimes 1991/92 I got my first personal callsign 4N4JJ, but never operated with it! 1992 I moved to Austria and started to operate from OE1XTU/OE1A. in same year I got OE1EMS callsign! I was active in most major contests mostly using OE1A callsign from Technical University Vienna - OE1XTU! Sometimes in 1993 I got my T94JJ license in Bosnia and did some small activities.
I join BCC 1994 @4U1VIC for CQ WW DX CW and 1995 I was QRV from there in WPX CW as SOAB!
Since 1994 I was QRV from 9A land as 9A/OE1EMS and 9A0R from Krk Isl. IOTA EU-136 participating mostly in IOTA Contest.
1997 for years I moved my contest station in Austria in placed called Oggau, where I tried to build a binger contest station but without great success!
In 2002/2003 I started to build more serios station in 9A on Krk Isl. where we did some more activities in CQ WW DX and WPX contest in MS/M2 categories but location didn't give performance I expected. After CQ WW DX SSB 2003 I moved back to Austria for CQ WW DX CW to OE4RLC QTH. It was very promising and we decided to build new contest station there. OE4A was born! I was mostly active in SOAB categories from there and there was some attempts to compete in MS categories, but with limited space (only 2 towers) it was a compromise! Anyway some good scores where made, even WPX EU record in SOAB (ass) category! After being active in HB0 for CQ WW 160m CW 2005 contest with my friends T93M, T93Y, T94DX, T96Q and finally got T93J callsign! 2007 for CQ WW CW 160m I made my first serios activity from Bosnia together with YT4AY and YU4JR using my callsign! And already in 2008 I found new QTH and I started to build the contest station in Bosnia! OE4A was rebuild and still remain fully equipped 160-10m! We did CQ WW DX SSB and CW in 2008 M/2 as T93J. Soon after Bosnia got new pfx E7 and I finally got my E77DX callsign and soon our group apply for E7DX contest callsign ! Since that time I was QRV as E7DX in almost all big contest in MS or SOAB categories claiming many EU records and some WW wins! Parallel I did some contesting as well from OE3K (OE1DIA QTH) and some VHF contesting as OE3XUA, OE3XKW,OE3A and OE1W! Beside my OE and E7 activities I was part of
