I´m 38 years old (may 2014), Electrical Engineer, married with Alessandra and we have three daughters...Beatriz(13), Catherine(11) and Laura(06).

Started on the radio in 1999 at CB, after VHF (2m) and in 2000 arrived at HF bands.

Interrupted my time on the radio in 2003 and returned in 2009 from apartment building station and beach home. In May 2013 decided to search a nice place for contesting and after to find it, I disassembled my home station and beach station and,  together other 04 friends we constructed the called ALTO DA SERRA CONTEST STATION. This station is located only 35 kilometers far from Sao Paulo Downtown and from there I'm operating DX and major contests.

Our new setup there are:

- Tower 01: 18 meters high - 05 x 05 Monobander for 15m (Stackmaster by Array Solutions)

- Tower 02: 20 meters - 06 x 06 Monobander for 10m (Four Stack made by hamplus.com)

- Tower 03: 06 meters - 06 el. Monobander for 10m

- Tower 04: 24 meters - 04 x 04 Monobander for 20m (Four Stack made by hamplus.com)

- Tower 05: 12 meters - 02 el. Monobander for 40m (top of hill - antenna see the valley)

- Slooper for 80 meters

We started construction in July 2013 and get ready for first use in October 2013 for CQWWSSB Contest. From this date, we are working to finalize details and turn the station better and better for contest. Actually station is ready for SO / Multi One / Multi Two. On the near future, after to install good system for 80m and 160m, will be able to operate Multi-Multi, plus 50 MHz band, 2m and 0,70m.

See below some steps of station preparation:
