 Hi....

Thank you for visiting my QRZ.com biography page.

ME AND THE HOBBY:

My interest in amateur radio began in 1965, when I became an SWL.

I received my first Ham license in 1968, and operated as a second operator of station LU9DCZ ,Don Ángel E. Quiroga(SK).

My first rig was a homebrewed 1 watt AM transmitter, a Geloso G207 receiver and a ½ wave Hertz Zeppelin antenna, for 80 metres.

On April 20, 1972 I was issued the call: LU8DPM.

I am very active on the low bands -40, 80 and 160 meters- both SSB and CW (QRS up to 16 wpm). But my favourite band is 160 metres!!!

The station is under continuous evolution and is being built and shared with my good friend LU2DKT Eddie in a Ranch land.

It is focussed mainly on 160 mts with good operating capabilities on 80 and 40 mts.

PEOPLE I AM GRATEFUL TO:

LU3DWY, Mabel, my lovely wife; Sebastian, my son; and Germana, Pia and Eloísa, my daughters, who supported me all these years, and allowed me to enjoy this wonderful hobby.

My special remembrance goes to LU5DWW, Ruben Santiago Bauer (sk ?), my friend, who disappeared in June 1977.

I am also grateful to:

  • LU5EBH, Ernesto,and all Family(Elias(SK)Celinda(SK)Susi,Jose and Rita)
  • LU2DKT, Eddie, (Station and antenna developer and good friend)
  • LU6DMN,Hugo (sk)
  • Jose Galvan(Old Friend)
  • Martin Robles(sk)(antenna climber)
  • Raúl Ocaño (antenna climber)
  • LU6DNP, Anibal Calvo (antenna climber)
  • LU5OM Manuel (who also helped to re-write this page)

 and many other people who have been helping me for a long time...

A special thanks, also, to my niece Paula, and my nephews Alberto and Fernando!
