My name is Pavel (born 1968) and I am one of the many "weirdos" who have devoted their free time to, among other things, amateur radio activities and things associated with this hobby.
I started listening to  international broadcast station in 1980 when I tuned in to Czech transmisions from abroad. It was HCJB station from Ecuador. My first BLC (QSL) card was from this radiostation.
From that time onwards, I have been interested in ham radio. I became a registered listener in the Czech Radio Club in 1982.

I have also created an International Encyclopedia Uniforms and Rank Insignia of uniformed forces and organizations from around the world, which is located at

My next hobby is collecting Police, Law enforcement, Firefighters and Paramedical trading cards, my collection is on this page:
