I had my first "radio contact" with the Boy Scouts, on 27th JOTA- (Jamboree on the air) in 1984 when I became in love for radio transmissions. Currently I'm a member of Radio Scout team UEB- SP. I started my radio activities in 2011, my first callsign wasPU2RIO and now I ´m PY2GV. I really like the digital modes, especially PSK 31 and JT-65. Currently living in Guarulhos - SP (GG66rn), however I spend some of my time at my other radio station in Juquitiba - SP (GG65lx).
I'm a biologist, specialist in molecular biology of toxins working with recombinant proteins, vaccines and venomous animals. I did some ethnobiology fieldwork in the National Forest of Purus – Amazonia (FI61gn) , Jurua Valley (FI41am) and in the Gregorio River (FI41co) - ACRE, where I lived with "ribeirinha" communities and the Yawanawa and Kaxinawa tribes.
