My Ham family is growing. My son Steven passed his HP Class B license test in june and in october 2014 was assigned the call HP2STE. The youngest in the family licensed at the age of 10. Other members includes HP2NG, HP2SA, HP2CNL, HP2WCN, and HP2YEA.
My individual operator callsign HP2B was assigned to me from 14/MAY/2014 to 14/MAY/2024 (10 years).
Due to strong opposition from few fellow HP Hams, the Department of Communications recalled back all HP individual operators 1 letter suffix callsigns and assigned back our previous 2 letters suffix call. Thanks to those 3 letters suffix Old timers HP Hams who opposed, All the possibilities for 1 letter suffix personal call letters assignment is closed for now. If you don't want to change and you're happy with your 3 letters suffix calls, We RESPECT your decision but other HP Hams like to strive for the shortest calls. The world is changing and in recent years countries like Russia has opened up their callsigns and neighbor Colombia too. Perhaps in the future, I will get back my call HP2B. So, Happily back to my nice call HP2AT. Furthermore, I still a long way to retirement. When I do, I make sure to find something else to do, Dx'ing which I love, Travel the world, taking care of my grandkids, but I will not be picking on my fellow HP Hams. We can Forgive, but not Forget.
I organized and activated for the first time the last two unnumbered HP IOTA references NA-202 y NA-203. Also, activated other numbered HP IOTA references NA-071, NA-088, NA-170 and all 9 provinces of the Republc of Panama including the Comarca de San Blas (Guna Yala). In the past, I have operated as 3F1P, 3F2CWB, 3F2K, 3F99PCR, HO1P, 3E100PC, 3E2G, 3E500CWB, H92A, HO2M, 3F3C, H33C, HO3C, HP2CWB/HP4, H95H, 3E6V, 3F6V, H36V, HO6V, H97D, H88C, HP9I, H99I, 3E0S, 3F0T, H30S, H80S, HO0S, HP100RCP, N4YWY, WB4ABK, and WT3B.
U.S. CALL W2JN (AMATEUR EXTRA CLASS WITH 20WPM CODE TEST SINCE 1991). With the new FCC Vanity callsign program in 1997, I decided to let go my nice 2x1 call WT3B and chose a 1x2 call with my initials.

6M DXCC #567
My DXCC QSL collection:
My WAZ QSL collection:
I have the QSL cards necessary for WAZ but not yet applied for the Basic WAZ Award.
My IOTA QSL collection:
I have more than 600 IOTA confirmed but not yet applied for the Basic IOTA Award.
I prefer QSL via LOTW. If you need my QSL card, You can save mailing cost and time filling out your QSL request + SAE by requesting your direct QSL card for all QSOs with $2 (anywhere in the world) via Paypal. Ask by e-mail with your QSO details for the Paypal address. Also, You can QSL direct with SAE with Panama stamp on it.
It is strongly recommended for 100% safety to use Paypal. Postal system is not safe. Some envelopes were received with the $$ taken and resealed.
My first Generation Full color front QSL card single for HP2CWB was poor quality paper printed in Poland and nowadays it is yellow toned stains in the back side. So In late October 2014, I ordered a new Full Color front and back side QSL card with my three regular callsigns I holded and will be able to confirm my old and new QSOs with a nice card.
After my 3E100PC Panama Canal Centennial operation ended in August 31, 2014, I started to work seriously in September the ARRL Centennial QSO Party stations and the W1AW portable stations. I regret not having started since January 1st, because I will have obtained more points and will have finished worked WAS Triple Play. As of December 8, 2014, I am leading the board for HP and need CW (SD, VT), Phone (NE, VT), to finish the WAS Triple Play Award.
Only HP listed in ARRL DXCC Honor Roll for Mixed and SSB. Recently worked ZD9 and VU4 for new ones on CW, So getting closer to Honor Roll in CW.
When I have accumulated a good quantity of DXCC credits via LOTW, I will submit a new DXCC application for credits and the callsign will reverse to my current call HP2AT on the DXCC listings.
