A visit with Tibor, HA7TM

The New Super Station of Tibor, HA7TM

Tibor became a licenced Amateur Radio operator at the age of 18. After 30 years of using his regular call sign he acquired a shorter, contest type, call sign HG7T. His appetite for serious contesting grew stronger and a couple of years ago he decided to go all the way. He found a secluded place, surrounded only by trees and some wild animals, about ten miles east of the second largest town in Hungary Debrecen. The land, some 2.5 acres, is hard to reach.

Tiborís home is in a suburb of Budapest called Erd. He had been building large antennas until he reached the limit of what a residential area can handle. Besides, this place became too noisy for any serious low-bands activity. A year ago he started building the new station from scratch.

Today there are five freestanding towers, soon there will be one more. On the day I visited his antenna farm a new 45-meter tower was being delivered. It will carry a full-size 80-meter Yagi antenna. In conjunction with several very long Beverage receiving antennas he is going to be able to raise incredible number of average-antenna stations all over the world.

The radio room is designed for multi-operator events, even though Tibor most often prefers single-operator contests. There is a small group of friends who help with the antenna work, and sometimes get together for a team effort in large contests.

Let the pictures talk. I hope to be able to visit him again when, if ever, this place will be finally ready. Such installations tend to grow all the time and are modified, modernized and improved all the time.

Visit Tiborís website www.ha7tm.hu where both up-to-date information is posted, as well as reports from his previous activities. He has been on several DX-peditions, apart from doing very well in contests operating from Hungary. This was my first visit to Hungary, which is truly an attractive and lovely country.

I also had the pleasure of visiting Tibi's station, thanks to HA5JI who took me there.

Beyond the station, I especially admired his two GPS robot lawn mowers which were in operation! :-)

Maybe it is how the logs are turned in. I know their are a lot of club stations in Hungary. Maybe they are assuming he is a club filing as single operator instead. T have Contact Tibor myself and have roots in Hungary so any HA call is special to me contest or no contest. I hope maybe someday I too will meet Tibor too.
