GREETINGS TO MY NEW PAGE 

First and most importantly this is my family and they are awesome.  My wife, Susanna, me and my son Maximiliano (Max). 

 

My favorite hobby is ham radio (my second favorite is snowboarding).  I was first licensed on Dec 20, 2010 (now over four years licensed) and was very active from a great QTH in San Diego where I had two towers and modest multi band HF yagis (at first a K4KIO hex beam, then 3 element steppir, and finally a combo of Mosley S33 and Pro 57B on two different towers) on an edge of a 232' canyon with ocean views.  

I went from this  -  

 

 

to this

 

I moved due to career enhancement and now my station is not what it was or even close.  My station is no longer as awesome as it used to be but I am back on the air.

My new station in CM97 includes the following:

  • Kenwood TS590S and an ACOM 1000

  • Homebrew G7FEK marconi antenna fed by ladderline (down for summer season)

  • Cushcraft R7000 vertical and a SteppIR dipole for 20 to 6m.

  • 6m M2 three element yagi

Current DX statistics:

2015 is off to a very slow start just hit 187 QSOs and it is May. I don't think I will get close even to last years low total.

  • 299 DXCC worked with 298 confirmed. Waiting on Cocos island.
  • 6m DX with 22 entities (20 worked in DM12 and 2 worked in EL09) worked and 19 confirmed. 
  • VUCC from DM12lo at 295 grids worked and 180 confirmed.  
  • VUCC from EL09 at 6 grids worked and 1 confirmed.
  • WAS basic award. 6m WAS current stats 46 states worked, 40 confirmed.
  • My favorite band is 6m for DX and grid chasing. Now since I am so limited in terms of capabilities I may start portable operations for 6m in the future. 
  • LOTW confirm to Total QSO rate is at 39.52% (1818 LOTW confirms / 4600 Total QSOs) = LOTW makes sense and if you are interested in DX and awards please sign up and join.

I will put up a Mosley TA53M project antenna that I purchased from someone who had lost their tower during Hurricane Sandy.  Need to get more parts for it so I will be looking for more replacement parts.  Contact me if you have Mosley yagis parts you would like to dispose of at my email listed above.  I am also looking for standard SteppIR parts for building a yagi. Please let me know if you have any fiberglass tubes, ehu, or other parts you would like to dispose. THANKS!!!

Below is a picture of me and my son, Max, who is now two years and eight months old (pictured below from almost a year ago).  He is super bright and already speaks Spanish and English fluently.  We have started Max on French and Mandarin Chinese now as it appears he has a talent like his mother for languages. 

 

Below is a picture of some of my favorite QSL cards (6m QSLs).

Max dreaming of his favorite band 6m!!  No other band is as wonderful and frustrating as 6m.  It is band that has our entire family hooked on ham radio for life (just kidding, wife isn't too thrilled about this goofy hobby).

Below is a picture of me and my wife Susanna at my sister's wedding a few years ago. She is a wonderful wife and mother for Max.

We have our 14th anniversary on May 4, 2015.

 

Below is a picture of my little angels, Roxy and Bentley. They are cavalier king charles spaniels and were our kids before Max came around.  They are still my fur babies and I love them so much.
