YU1AAV was founded in 1978 as one of nine sections of RC "Novi Beograd" YU1FJK http://www.yu1fjk.org
Primary goal was to teach kids morse code and ARDF skills.For this 25
years period our president Slavko Bozic YU1SB with the help of other members
"made" over 750 new hams in YU. Started with old TS 510 and simple dipole, in
1984 we get first "serious" trcv- ICOM 745.Back in 80's the most active on HF
were: Danny , Rick YU1DJ, Slavko YU1SB, Aca YU1AA, Jimmy YU1ED, Aca YU1VU-silent key, Sasa YU1FM - silent key, Mita YU1NU - silent key. 90's brought us war, sanctions
and social crises, but also the good oportrunity to move kids from the streets
was to start with ham radio. These were the years when the most kids from neighbourhood finished course and get basic ham licence. Among these kids were
Zoki,Zik, Aca today the most active members of YU1AAV. Our "big" first step was
putting full-size delta loop for 40mtrs beetween two skyscrapers (tnx to YT1DX
Milos). After that we made loops for each band but the neighbours weren't much
happy with that so-called spider net, hi. Started with only 150 DXCC entities
confirmed and 500 prefixes today we have 314 DXCC and over 2500 PFX confirmed.
Making every day something god for our "Kozara" YU1AAV. Without operators personal donations this hobby would be mission impossible! All expences, for qsl printing, buying wires for new antenna's, for rig parts is on us.
Beggining of 2007 was nice for us, we bought a FT 1000 MP mark V :)
During the one year,we make about 10 000 qso's with very old equipment and very simple antenna'z. But despice all the problems which every club has in Serbia, we are continuing to fight for HAM RADIO, best hobby in the world!!!
Collecting all kinds of awards, DXCC, WPX, RDA (100, 250, 500 cfmd), IOTA
YU1SB is still learning kids from our hood morse and trying to explaine that these hobby is something special.
ARDF is very popular here, for that maine people in YU1AAV are YU1EP, YU1ED, YT1ND, YU1RT, YU1SB.
They are spending lot of time learning the kids that activity.
Andra YU1QT is helping with antennas.
Every day on HF our primary goal is to confirm as much as possible DXCC and
various PFXs, make new friendship's and learn something new.
Crazy about qsl cards new wpx, rda, wab, iota, dok...
Especialy like to work in contests.You can find us as YZ1V in almost every contest during the year.Aware of limited working conditions, poor anntenas we are trying to give our best and also have fun.
Now valid prefix for Serbia is YU & YT , and soon we will
be on air with some new contest call , YZ1V is past :(
