Ham since I was 16. I began in the 60’s. Those were AM years, home brew gear, open line feeders, and link transmitter output. SSB and Pi output were on the news.
In 1974 built my first SSB transceiver. It was a 40 meters, 250 Watts from a paralleled pair of 6KD6, and Collins 455 mechanical filter.
My first commercial gear was a Kenwood TS520 in 1978.
During the 80's I mixed SSB and CW butI got engaged with CW and put away all mics. Just CW since 1991.
Served in Air Force 1980 thru 1990. Then I had a 15 years radio break since my job took me out of Argentina and
kept me traveling as Field Engineer.
Back home, I settled down in Buenos Aires, but moved temporarily to the south of Argentina, on grid FD58.
Very windy here so no yagis. I mounted 2 diamond loop antennas on a tower, ropes pulling the side corners, fed at the lower corner. Some active in 20 but mostly 30 and 40 meters.
No bureau services here. BUT I confirm ALL QSOs electronically via LoTW and eQSL.
LoTW and eQSL arereliable,easy to use, fast and costless.
Little tiny contributions are as well Nature-accepted for a GREENER PLANET
My temporarily QTH is near this beauty:
73's and best DXs
Currently I'm suffering TOCD (Tube Obssesive Compulsive Disorder)
