I work with a Yaesu FT847 and also an FT-897D with only 100 Watts and a Dipole antennas for 40 and 10 meters by now. It is not very righ but works fine.
I got my first call sign in 1985, and 2 years later the PY1UFO when I lived in Rio. Then I stoped in 1996 because of propagation and changing QTH to places where I could not have a Ham station. But finally after 15 years I am back!!
Now I live in Guaratinguetá - São Paulo, and my new call is PY2PRB.
73s to all and many DXs and good propagation to all the planet !!
Come on Sun!! Be Good!
Below is my Old Station, back in 80s / 90s when I lived in Rio.
Notice the Christ on top of my head like an antenna. I was on top of Cristo Redentor montain, and the view of Rio there is fantastic. With only 20w and a CB radio with a simple telescopic antenna, and of course "The Christ" above, I worked many station from Brazil and Europe. That was in 83 I guess.
