If you need my QSL card, let me know.
If you sent me your card and you didn't get mine, let me know.
If you send it directly to me, I will send mine back to you.
A SASE will be welcome, but not mandatory.
My first call was PY1DXO in 1973 at age 14 in my city, Campos. In 1978, I was promoted to C Class, and without asking me, my call sign was changed to PY1BJC. At that time, I was living in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Later when I moved to Santa Catarina in 1985, and at the time as A class, I received call sign PP5JY, which I have kept until today living in Joinville, although I have lived in different places (PY1, W9, PY2).
Among the many people who helped me in the beginning, I would mention João Antônio Thurler, PY1DDI(Toni) (SK) who was my great Elmer. He was a professional railway telegrafist and Thurler was always patient with people and very collaborative. He was also, for many years our National League (Labre) representative in the city, and his house was our local bureau and he taught telegraphy to whoever asked him. He worked only CW and mainly on 40m and 15m.
I can remember some others who helped me in my early days or simply had the privilege to meet and enjoy their friendship. The majority consisted of professional telegraphists , electrical and electronics technicians and banking clerks and students, but all lovers of amateur radio.
Albino de São João, PY1PE (SK) (perhaps the greatest Brazilian radio designer of all time), Aldo Rossi PY1MES (SK), Ronaldo Salles PY1MKA (SK), Rubens Fraga PY1MEZ (SK), Radamés Juliboni PY1NBP (SK), Manoel Claro PY1DNF (SK),Domingos Oliveira PY1MGY (SK), Nelson Silva PY1SF (SK) , Roberto PY1OX (SK), Murilo PY1DLE, Adilson PY1DCY, Joel PY1EAZ, Sebastião PY1MHK, Luiz Carlos PY1DUI(SK), Carlos Kropft PY1MDL, Carlos RamosPY1CSV, Claudia PY1DWY, Nelson Thomé PY1MIZ, Aroeira PY1AW , Ariel PY1MEV, and Juarez PY1MEU (SK).
In Florianópolis, Savinho PP5CV helped me in using PP5UF.
At Argonne Labs (89/90) Bill Karraker W9AVE (SK) was very kind in introducing me to the AARC and helped me using W9ANL the club station.
In São Paulo, I didn't forget Pedro Cattuny PY2ARJ (SK), Macedo PY2AN (SK) and Valter Turin PY2ATW, who helped me a lot. I can't forget my freind Dippold Jr. PP5AJ and after PP5BJ (SK) that has always been kind with me since I arrived in Joinville. And last but not least, I am glad to have met and hosted John Sluymer VE3EJ and Jim Roberts VE7ZO, for their kindness and friendship on using my site on WRTC 2006, for which they got first place, and because that, I won too the antennas used and got interested in international contests.
