QSL image for CT1IQI

My QTH is in the south-eastern tip of Portugal; the Atlantic Ocean coast is 7 km south from here and the Guadiana river, that marks the border between Portugal and Spain, can be seen from the shack in easterly direction on a clear day. The southern part of Portugal is a district called the Algarve, a name that stems from Arabic and the rich and moving history of this region. My QTH is within the borders of the municipality Tavira. The city Tavira itself is very pitoresque and worth your visit. This part of the Algarve has beautiful and wide sandy beaches. The local cuisine specializes in a wide variety of fish dishes. Although there is not a large production quantity-wise the Algarve also produces some excellent wines.

My activity as a radio amateur started in 1969 at the age of 17 in the Netherlands where I operated with the call PA0MSM. At he age of 51 my family emigrated to Portugal. I became active as CT1IQI. I like making QSOs in cw and ssb. Am currently using a vertical antenna, 5 meter tall, and a long wire antenna, 40 meter long. Here a photo of the vertical, looking in south-easterly direction. The QTH is at 200 meter altitude.

The ladder line that feeds the long wire can be seen here: The trees in the front are rubber trees.

20 mtrs of open feed line

 

The 40 meter wire antenna slopes slightly down in south-east direction.
