Lots of Glow woms blinking about 3 feet over the ground, in the sky a jet arriving to the airport abt 20 miles to the south.

The stars looks like small bluish dashes, the glow worms are green points

Very nice clear night, without visible moon,

Panoramic view.

Just collected on the route!

 

I was born in 1958 and I am authorized since July 1975, I have always operated on all bands and modes.


My preferred mode is CW.

Mi profession it is Electronic Engineer since 1980

My first steps in ham radio were when I was young and built my first ham radio gear.At 12 years old from a scheme published in the magazine Hobby (I had begun to operate without a license, because our local laws do not give a call sign to people under 18 years old), I put an old Nr 42 pentodeoriginally used as audio output in an old receiver and power supply was made with the transformer, capacitors and rectifier tube 80 as used in the same chasis.Still remember the first sparks in my fingers!.

I built a Hartley oscillator module and putting a carbon microphone between the antenna and chassis, then had filled the roof of the house of my father with all the copper wires that I found out there but. had not found good results with my nonresonant. antenna, Hi, Hi .until after a while to discovered how to adjust the length of the antenna for 40m band.

With my first tests have been harassing local QSOs from my local carrier frequency and listening for comments on the problem caused by receiving Hi, Hi.

Then I make my first QSO DX, 1000 miles in the AM mode, Ohh! What a thrill!

After a power amplifier constructed with a tube of 6DQ6 collected from an old B / W TV receiver and learned CW.(You may use that tube was the reason why all my neighbors began to see-TVI television, hi!).

This opens the window to the world.My first DX on 40m CW with VE3OY was his name Russ really was one of the strongest emotions I felt.When I return to my excitement was greatly strengthened CQ. A few days later, when I received the QSL card, I remember a map and a ruler, calculating the distance and trying to imagine the path of radio waves .The receiver was very common5 tubes receiver stolen from the kitchen, which ranged from 4 MHz to 11MHz, with an added beat oscillator.

Lots of homemade transmitters some SSB transceivers, antennas and linear amplifiers I used this time.


In 2000 I decided to set up a station / lab on a farm, Buy a small (35 acre) farm located some 40 kilometers north of my QTH and started to put many towers, monobands, equipment and also carry amplifiers lineales. I carrymany of the instruments and books so as to create a place to stay to study, work and enjoy the hobby.

My family consists of my wife, Ana, and many dogs. Ana is CX1AM, Gynecologist and Pathologist Med. doctor and do not like the radio much, because during his childhood, his father was an old ham cx (SK) and her husband is a fanatic!

My other hobby is now learning about farming, raising sheep, cows and some animals on the farm.

My QSL card may be sent directly only I do not use the local bureau.Please include SAE and 2 GS or IRC (IRC is preferred because the GS are stolen in the mail service from time to time.)

Thanks for reading my little story, enjoy the DX!
