Age (WRTC 2018): 47

Occupation: Project manager at power generation company
I received my first licence, and callsign OK2XTE, in 1993. This licence limited me to VHF/UHF/uW bands. I actually enjoyed VHF contesting and DXing.
Then, in 1995 I passed a CW exam and upgraded my licence to all bands. In 1998, after two and half years, I received 250 confirmed DXCC and was allowed to change my callsign to the shorter OK2ZI. From 1998 to 2012 I was VHF/UHF/uW Manager of the Czech Radio Club, and I have represented our country at IARU Region I meetings.
I am the founder of OL5Z and OK5Z contest stations and guest op at OK5W. We won several OK VHF/UHF/uW championships and gained several EU achievements. I won OK HF Championships, OK/OM DX contests and several international contests on many occasions. I am DXCC Honor Roll holder - with 331 countries confirmed.
In recent times, following WRTC2018 qualification, I have been busy with the construction of contest QTH for our OK5Z Moravian Contest Group.
