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).  

I went from this  -  

 

To this:

and this, could be worse

 

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

  • Homebrew G7FEK marconi antenna fed by ladderline

  • Traffie Portable Hex-Pak, hex beam (20 to 6) single bander

  • 6m M2 loop and Ameritron AL811HD amplifier

  • Other portable antennas include a 15m cobweb antenna and various other wire attempts at antennas.

Current DX statistics:

  • 297 DXCC worked with 297 confirmed.
  • DXCC 6m with 22 entities (20 worked in DM12 and 2 worked in EL09) worked and 19 confirmed. 
  • VUCC from DM12lo at 295 grids worked and 170 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. 

Latest operations (Dec 18, 2014 to Jan 3, 2015) have been in EL09 at my inlaws where I have installed my Innovantenna OP DES 6m six element antenna and reinstalled my OCF 80 to 6m dipole at the top of their hill.  It was awesome working with my TS590S, TE Systems 0510G 6m brick amp and the OP DES antenna.  Worked two new ones on 6m (two Venezuela stations and one Bonaire station).  Next visit, 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.

Below is a picture of me and my son, Max, who is now two years and five 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 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.
