Ham Member Lookups: 76684

 

Greetings.  I received my first radio (Sears Walkie Talkies) for my
birthday in 1968 when I was 10 years old.  Had some guidance from a nearby Ham Operator NP4V (CB Operator at the time), 48 years ago.  A week later I had a soldering iron in my hands and was changing tx crystals on it and running a whooping 100mW :-).
 
 At 13 I took an  ElectronicsTechnicians course from LaSalle Extension University, with a dictionary next to me.  At age 17 I went to Europe, after receiveing some training in the USA, and worked there as well as in, Africa and the Middle East.  My work allowed me to play with the latest developed technology, at the time, of course smiley, in satellite communications,  radars, remote sensors, point to point microwave telecommunications and HF voice and data.  I lived there for 17 years.  I have had the opportunity to be on the far end of DX operating from, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Baharain, Doha, Austria, Kuwait, Iraq, and the Sub Saharan Desert.  I also lived, worked and/or studied in Mo, Az, Il, Ga, Tn and Ca.  Previously held calls      are DA4LAN2MUC9K2YM and KP4ZR.
432 Mhz RHCP HelicalThe dish only happened to be the required size to act as a ground plane for the helix.  432 Mhz RHCP Helical.  Contacts up to 40,000 Km with 25 watts on AO-10 and AO-13.
   I operated satellite only for about 10 years and made many friends and contacts on the Russian Fleet  (RS) and most phase II and III C satellites available up until 2003.  Operated the only Phase III D (AO-40) while it lived end enjoyed the microwave uplinks and downlinks at very low power. Operated from voice to FSTV.
 
 Along the way I developed an interest on ESSB (Enhanced Single Side Band) and I am still  learning and putting into practice what I learn.  I try to speak spanish, english, german and italian, and like to practice on the air.  surprise

Now days (2015...) my interest is on QRP and Magnetic Loops Antennas, my greatest accomplishment, thus far,  ZL2IO on 15 mtrs qrp with a 36" diameter Mag Loop and 4 watts!!
