Ham since I was 16. I began in the 60ís. 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 but 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 a Field engineer.
Back home, I settled down in Buenos Aires, but moved temporarily to the south of Argentina, on grid FD58.
Due to strong winds here, I raised only a small yagi for 20-15-10 and 2 diamond loop antennas for
30-40 on a tower, with ropes pulling the side corners, fed at the lower corner wih 2:1 balun.
No bureau services here. BUT I confirm ALL QSOs electronically via LoTW and eQSL.
LoTW and eQSL are reliable, easy to use, fast and costless.
AND MOST IMPORTANT:
It's a little tiny step, your cent contribution 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)
