First license was in January 1993 as CL2WF, next two years I got CM and CO, so in 1995 operated as CO2WF, at last.
Until 2000 i was very active on all HF band´s, excluding 160 and 80 mts band´s. I ussually worked SSB and CW modes. After 1999 i knew PSK31 and I in love of that interesting mode, i made a lot of QSO's, mustley in 20 mts, but over the 2002 i took some break and rest for a while(busy at work). Actually (2009) I'm interested on Digital Modes, as PSK31, Packet and RTTY. Anyway i was active in multi-multi & multi-single Contest operations, like T49C and T40C, as was with CO2BCC & CO9BCC (Centro Habana Radio Club) back in 1998. T40C keep me busy on CQ WW DX, ARRL International DX and WW WPX Contest, all using CW. I hope to copy you on air soon.
My favorite bands for PSK are 20 & 40m, around 14.070 and 7.035, CW 14.005 & 7.015 for now, will wait for better Prop. conditions to get over other bands. Am already installed a 6 meters system, with an ICOM IC-505 (10 w output), a vertical antenna and a original Vibroplex CW Key(No. 202880) ready to go on air; also have ready a PTT switch with direct soundcard wires, to get on air using WSJT modes on 6 meters. QRV on weekends, chasing for beacon activity and wait for Es or any other kind of prop layers.
