39 years of continuous DX operation! The year 2006, my ham golden jubilee. Middle century of 2-way radio operation.
I am have today 338 confirmed countries in SSB and 139 in CW; 541 IOTA groups; 896 world islands; and 201 lighthouses situated in 51 countries of the six continents.
At this time I have high interest to contacting operations "air mobile", "maritime mobile", "lighthouses" and also any stations situated behind the arctic and antarctic circles and also in the exotic areas of the earth in the places called as "the lost lands".
However, I will be continue active on the air now and forever more.
The pictures on the text are in my QTH; front my radio room and tri-band antenna 3DX3 in background. The natural scenes are in my home-farm, my birthplace located about 40 km to northwest of Campina Grande. The older preserved stone-house was built by my grand-grandfather on the 18th century. The watter reservoir was built by myself since many years ago. In this paradise place my family and I live the vacations, holidays and week-ends, and from here I work mobile and portable.
