2006 Basic Training Graduation Day
Hello and Greetings from the Island of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Dear Colleagues. After many years enjoying the radio frequency in 11 meters, I become an Amateur Radio Operator, since Sept /24/1996 with the license NP3FY with (5 word per minute) CW approved. I'm originally from the city of Coamo in the south center of the island, but now since 1996 I got married and I’m living in the city of Arecibo in the north cost of the island with my wife and my daughters for the last 17 years.
My primary activity in the radio frequency is for HF SSB DX’s, I work on 2 meter & 440 MHz, also works Satellite, Psk31, Slow scan TV, ect… I am running a very simple but effective station:
Yaesu FT-900AT, Yaesu MD-100 Mic, 2 power Supply an Astron RS-35M & Nippon America 35 amps, DAIWA SWR & Power Meter, Antron 99 Vertical Antenna for 10/12 meters, Inverted V wire dipoles for 20/40/80 meters band all are giving me "good" results. In VHF & UHF: Icom IC-2350H Dual Band Radio with a Shure PG-58 Desktop Mic, Comet GP-6 Vertical Dual Band Antenna, Yaesu VX-7R Handy, Icom IC-2100 for Digi modes + a KPC 3 Plus TNC, & my old CW keyer it was from the old rail road station in Buffalo N.Y.
My newest toys! Icom IC-706 MKIIG and for my mobile an Icom IC-2720H Dual band. and Also a brand new YAESU FT-950
Talking about my self and my profession, well I’m a singer from one of the most important musical group here in Puerto Rico since Sept 1994; the name of the group is Caña Brava, which means Brave Cane. The music we perform is Merengue, originally from the Dominican Republic. I’m in the musical business since 1987 when I was in high school, Im still singing but as a part time now. I study computer programming, later computer repair and networking. I am retired from the United State Armed Forces since December 2013, I served as a Military Police in the U.S. ARMY Reserve. In the weeks days i work as a Chief Security Officer (Night shift) in a private company.
My family: My wife Yaritza, My daughters Tanyi is 17 years old and Kiari is 7 years old. Well that’s it for now!!! I hope you like to know I little bit about my family and me & I hope to hear from you again…
