A litle bit of History about Radio and me:
Hi all, I'm in radio since wen I was a child. My parents buy me a pair of walki talki, and this way of communication hook me until today. I was only 4 years old.
At 14 years old, was my first CB Walky Talky, Great 3wats, 3 channels, and one year later I can buy my first "serius" CB SSB tranceiver: Super Star 3900, with coverage from 25mhz to 28 mhz, AM, FM, SSB. My antena was Tagra BT-210, ringo type antena with big ground plane. I keep a lot of QSL cards over the world in 11 meters band. My callsing 30-TR-200, Tweed Radio Group.
At 17 years old, pass my first amateur exam, and buy a 144 mhz Talky. I was enjoying with radio packet BBS system, and making a lot of contacs in 11 mtrs band in SSB with only 12wats and vertical Ringo GP (5/8), also I made SSTV DX in 11 mtrs band, and packet radio with PG-Group 11 mtrs BBS in SSB.
At 23 years old, pass my second amateur exam, and licenced with EC1APJ. It was difficult because morse code at 7 wpm was requerided to pass it. With this licence, I was transmit in part of 80 mtrs, 15 mtrs, and 10 mtrs band in SSB and other modes. My equipment go ahead, and bought an Kenwood 570-D, and Butternut antenna HF9V to reach all bands of amateur.
At 24 years old, I pass my third exam (with morse code at 12 wpm), and take my definitive call: EA1CDV, now My equipment is the same, plus: Yaesu FT-857, and VHF/UHF Kenwood TM-710 with APRS.
Now I live in Madrid, NOT in Santander, I'm SAP PM & WCM consultant. Sometimes, on holidays, and weekends, I travel to Santander to see my parents and friends.
Now in Madrid, my radio working conditions are limited, only wire antena (0,30 mm invisible wire), and Magnetic Balum 9:1, all home made. But, I'm active in SSB and PSK in all bands, and also in WSPR mode.
I hope to meet you again on the air, or drinking a beer, ;), my QSL card is sure via Bureau+E_QSL for a momment. I hope you send me your QSL for my collection.
73, and good Radio. Antonio.
