I enjoy several different aspects of the hobby.


First of all I am a keen mobiler. This started off in 2000 as a result of limited time availability at home. My first basic station, using a TS140S and helical whips, has undergone many changes since then. The current setup uses Kenwood TS-590 and an ameritron ALS-500M amplifier. The antenna system is based on interconnecting 3/8” masts, whips, coils, and capacity hats, and can be configured to suit almost any need from 80 – 10m. I usually use full size quarter wave antennas on 20-10 while parked, with the MFJ 1979 telescopic whip. I also have several fishing rods and spiderpoles for semi-portable operations. I am fortunate that I work in the port of Valencia and quickly discovered that salt water and vertical antennas is a great combination, my current entity total from the mobile is 321.


Although not so active, I also have a station at my city centre flat which consists of an Icom IC765, Tremendus 2, and an Optibeam OB6-3M.


I also have a station at my villa in La Eliana. This villa is available for rental and details can be had at: http://www.homelidays.com/la-eliana/house-villa180929en1.htm If interested, please contact me for further details.


I also enjoy contesting. Currently my contesting activity is centred around the Torrent Contest Club (http://ea5kv.ure.es) but over the last few years I have done contests in many shapes and forms, either as SOSB, mobile, portable, or part of the teams at EA5DF, EA5DFV, and EA5HQ. I was fortunate enough to be part of the national HQ team in the 2006 IARU contest, was phone coordinator of the Spanish team for the 2007 event, and co-organizer of the 2013 and 2014 teams (2nd place world on both occasions).


Portable activities also form a part of my operations. After trying many different combinations, I currently use a KX3 with 4500mAh batteries and end fed wires or an Alex loop, which I find to give the best balance between weight, size, current draw, efficiency, and setup time.

QSL info: Direct QSLs with SAE and return postage will be returned direct. If no SAE and/or insufficient postage, QSL will be returned by the bureau.
