My oldest memory from radio operations goes when I was 10. At that time with a pair of walkie talkies I experimented the first flavors of amateur communication. I spent several years with CB radios and finally moved to the amateur radio bands in 1990.
Having obtained my licence in Brazil, my born country, I then moved to France in 1995 when sometime after requested local authorities to validate my call-sign which they did. My QSL card is from that time.Back to Brazil after 15 years I have been somehow active on HF, especially on 10 meters. I am also very active on 2m/70cm.
I have recently started experimenting with Digital Communications via DSTAR, therefore I am somehow active on the Brazilian DV repeaters of PY2KRJ and PY2KPE.
I am also studying CW, slowly but surely, so as to operate this mode and to upgrade my license. Hope to hear you in the air.
I DO CONFIRM ALL QSLs RECEIVED BY QRZ.COM !
