Hello, my name is Fernando, born in New York in 1946 and raised in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. I was married to Hada (NP4KJ) (SK on 4 april,2012) and have 3 great kids, daughter and 2 sons...."none of them hams", sorry!
I was first licensed as WP4AFA in 1978, didn't do much until 1980 when I upgraded to Technician and fiddled around with VHF sideband.In 1985 got my General ticket and the DXCC bug bit me. Since then that has been my aim in life.

 

MEMORIES:(1985) Radio Shack Color Computer II, TS430,Yaesu all mode 2 meter rig, few pounds overweight, and hair, hair!! ). Below my first DX station

I started out with a Yaesu FT101E, a Mosley TA33/3 element beam and wires for 40 & 80 mtrs. After a couple of years, I acquired a Kenwood TS430 and 200+ countries later upgraded to a Kenwood TS570,(Now to a TS590 smiley!!)Mosley TA53/4 element beam w/40mtr rotatable dipole and still have wires all over the place for 80 mtrs.
Since 1996 I've had my KP3AH call. In these 20+ years I have obtained DXCC in 10 thru 80 mtrs, "5 band DXCC award!!"(341 worked, 341 confirmed);Honor Roll with 333 active countries; WAS in 10,15 and 20 mtrs;10-10 DXCC & WAS;WAC,WAZ, all with 100 watts SSB. I recently started working on 160 mtrs, will see how it goes.

My QTH (TA53 with 40 mtr. kit, by Mosley)

 

I aim to QSL all contacts made. I upload my QSO'S to weekly, and every couple of months I send cards by the bureau,(you know they take forever) so...if you need direct confirmation, I will appreciate a SASE and IRC'S or equivalent in green stamps for postage fees.

My QSL cards:
For you IOTA island chasers, PUERTO RICO NA-099

Well...that in a nutshell is my life as a Ham, also like baseball,and Drag Racing. I'm always available by e-mail, so feel free to contact me if needed.

I am a member of the Puerto Rico Amateur Radio League -- visit our portal at: www.prarl.org
