ha5ao bouvet 450x450
My name is Istvan Gaspar, operator name is Pista.
I was born in 1951. I was radio operator in the military between 1971 and 1973. In 1974 I was licensed as HA7VT and changed to HA5AO in 1984. In 1973 I joined HA5KHT club station and was a very active member of the contest team until 1990. Due to family and professional commitments, I wasn't active between 1990 and 2004. I am back on the air since 2004 and active on HF bands (mainly CW). I am DX enthusiast.
