QSL image for PY2EX

Encouraged by my dad Egon PY2BW, I got my first license (PY2MIK) in February 1982 at the age of 14.

This QSL card was printed by OM Mauricio Tibiriça PY2NGL.

My very first CQ was made on the 80 meter band using an Atlas 210X. It was a very simple to use transceiver that allowed me in making friends on the air. Some of them became good friends and we use to get together until today. In 1982 I started working in contests (local) and also started operating on the 6 meter band. That time QSOs with Hawaii (KH6), Japan (JA) and Minami-Torishima (JD1) on 50MHz were not a problem. There was also a transponder in Chile (CE4) that allowed stations transmiting on 6 meter (50.107 KHz USB) to contact stations on 144MHz FM in Atacama. It was a very nice time.

In 1988 I enjoyed 18 months in Braunschweig, Germany (DL), and have operated as DL/PY2MIK. Over there I made a special friend, Gero DL2AAY (SK), who teached me german on the 2 meter band and also helped me to get a job (as a trainee) at VW in Wolfsburg.

In 1989 I have upgraded to "classe A" (no band restrictions) and changed the callsign to PY2EX.

In the 90s I have used alternately the special callsing PS2E to participate in international contests.

In 1998 I moved to an apartment (building) in Sao Paulo city where I've tried hard but never got the permission to install my antennas.

This was the solution to be on the air during the nights..  ;)

  

In 1999 I bought a property in the country side (Juquitiba) in order to get back to contests. In 2003 we started building towers and antennas. We have participated in many contests and enjoyed this location until 2006.

In 2009, needing "real" RF in my veins (hi),I decided to re-built an urban station in my mother's QTH (she still lives in a house in the same district I live) to let me operate HF from the city. (Thanks Mom). In this QTH I have a 20mh tower with the KT34A (4 el triband Yagi) and a 2 el Yagi for 40 meter installed. The transceiver is and old (but FB) Yaesu FT-1000D. This setup allows me to be on the air when I'm in the city.

In January 2010 I got a new job that forced me to move to the state of Goias (PP2) in the central part of the country.

Then I got the call PP2EG that I used til December 2012.

 

Now I´m back in São Paulo city and replaced the old antennas with a log periodic to allow me to work on the 17 and 12 meter bands as well. See pictures. The 2el yagi for 7Mhz will be re-installed in the comming months.

I also have some nice videos of mobile operations in the Youtube.

Pointing my QTH. This NW view. I live in the south part of the city and house is located very close to the São Paulo Golf Club.

 

 

This is the Acom LS-1210 Log Periodic antenna (14 to 30 MzHz) on the top of a 20mh self-supported tower (installed in May 2014).

 

 

This is my 28MHz 2el cubical quad  @ 5mh. It can be manually rotated. Picture shows the antenna heading to NW (central e north America).
