Thank you kindly for taking the time to look me up! I became an Amateur “ham” radio operator in July 06, 1978 under the callsign WP4AQK, KP4-Land. My love for radios begun in my early years, late 1960’s when my father brought home an old Hallicrafter Model S-38. Many Caribbean nights I spent listening to distant radio station.

In the mid-late 1970's I acquired a small CB-mobile, set up a home station, made some local contact and soon after my father applied and received the FCC license for CB'rs KAZW-8890. But, after while I realized this is not what I was looking for or hope for. I kept hearing about Ham Radios, Morse code, repeaters, countries, prefixes and whole bunch of Ham jargon, and then I discovered the difference between these two. In early 1979, I found after researching, a Radio Club for KP4. I enrolled in the Novice class and the rest is history.

In 2006, I applied & received my first vanity callsign K4ZZA after holding the same callsign for 25 years. Now, in 2008 my initial JGA became available and is my new vanity callsign K4JGA!



MODUS OPERANDI

 

I mostly work CW and some SSB. My SSB is mostly to NTS Traffic Net, occasionally YL-System net, and late net for WAS on SSB when I am up to. My enthusiasm for CW was sparked by a friend Daniel “Danny” Ponce WP4F, who also set up my first 15 meter radio antenna, on the CW portion. Many, many wonderful contact I made with that small long wire 15 meter antenna back in the early 1980's. He later introduced me to William “Willie” Werner KP4DJ (SK).What a CW operator he was! These 2 gentlemen-CW Operator encouraged me to stay focus while increasing my receiving CW speed. My CW-Code teacher was Sr. Felix Albert Cordero-KP4ZC, Don Felix thank you for your time, and patience with me and my classmate. The Novice classes were given back then at the Civil Defense HQ in Guaynabo and sponsored then by Radio Club De Puerto Rico - KP4ID.

Main Interests
- Mainly CW with some SSB activity as mentioned earlier, "rag chewing", HF DX hunting (any mode I can find them!!), county hunter, semi serious contester, helping other "hams" and teaching ham radio classes.

I’m a wallpaper chaser, and a serious DX hunter; mostly I’m a Lone Wolf operator. I am in a listening, search and find mode. Getting very interested in all Digital Modes. I am reading and learning all I can regard these modes.

I collect and repair old/antiques radios-AM radios Pre-1960's. I do have a small personal collection of them. Tombstone, Cathedral, Low and Highboy, ect. Soon I will be posting some pictures of them at this site.

I love handling traffic, you may find me on our local nets 147.285 SVTN Net - 07:15 PM - Orlando/Sanford area, Florida Mid-day Traffic Net "when conditions allow it", 4RN (at one point I was net control), some Caribbean HF-Traffic net and as well some other HF nets on a daily basis.

PAST EXPERIENCE IN HAM RADIO


I’m the past President of Pan American Radio Club in Orlando (the first Hispanic Radio Club in Orlando), FirstPresident and Founder of Orlando Latin Amateur Radio Club. Unfortunately, after my departure years later both clubs were dissolved.

MY QSL POLICY


I do reply ALL MY QSO WITH 100% QSL!!! No matter how many times I had worked the country, state, prefixes or county! It is the final courtesy; it says so much about the radio operator. Some of us still need them for awards purposes.

QSL cards are a very integral part of MY ham radio experience. Even with all the electronic methods of QSLing, I still prefer to "QSL paper" - to me, QSL cards are my collectible baseball cards!

YOU SHOULD REMEMBER HOW YOU FELT AND HOW ANXIOUS YOU WERE TO RECEIVE YOUR VERY FIRST QSL CARD! PAY THAT COURTESY TO OTHERS!

 

If You Need My State or County; for US Hams send me a card with or without a SASE. I will respond with my QSL Card 100%. I always appreciate a SASE or SAE, if you cant afford it, just send me your card and you will get mine.

U.S. Stations – If I need your state or county, I will send a SASE with my QSL CARD, unless in your QRZ.COM stated that NO SASE is needed. Please have the courtesy to send me a card back! There are few states that have been uncooperative and I had sent out at least 4 or 5 of my QSL CARDS to get one back.

DX Stations - If I really need your country, I will send my card direct with appropriate $$$ to cover return postage. Please do not let this become a money making enterprise - some stations keep MY money and never return their cards (past experience). All other DX stations will be confirmed 100% via the bureau. If you need my QSL direct, I will appreciate 1 green stamp to cover postage. If I had your country confirmed I will send my QSL CARD via “burro”, and I do send them every 6 month (January & July).

EQSL - it is nice but to be honest is worthless for awards! therefore... NO EQSL PLEASE!

Contest QSLs- I love contest! Although my main reason is for new countries, states and/or counties, never the less I will send my QSL cards as soon as I can, usually within 2 or 3 days.

LoTW - Still working on it...I am an old fashion Amateur Radio Operator…

 

MY QSL CARD

My QSL card has been made to show the main attraction of my beautiful state...
.

 

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER!!!

 

This card is to commemorate and pay my personal tribute to all NASA employees, for their 30 years HARD work with the SPACE SHUTTLE PROGRAM!

It’s my believe, DX’r and State Ham alike will appreciate this QSL Card and will like to display it in their collection.

Entry photo example



I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.

I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.

I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.

I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.

I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.

I will always send my full call sign.

I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.

I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.

I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.

I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.

When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.

I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.

I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect
