I was born on August 8, 1957 in the city of Varginha, Minas Gerais State, Brazil.
I always liked that everything was related to transmissions and communications, since I was a child.
Whenever I heard the radio transmissions, I was fascinated by everything.
When I was 7 years old, I visited a Corporation Fire Department in the city of São Paulo and there I witnessed for the first time in a transmission line telegraphy (CW).
Since then I became interested in this kind of transmission, and until I began to learn something.
But time passed and I lost touch with people connected to the radio.
Only on May 10, 1999 is that I got into amateur radio and my first callsign was ZZ4PHI.
On November 07, 2002 I did exams for class B and changed my callsign to PY4EP and July 27, 2006 I passed the exams for Class A and I kept the same call.
Currently the PY4EP station is composed of VHF radios ( FT1900 and IC2000 ), HF radio FT840, yambic key CW Kempro KP-100, computer, inverted V dipole antenna for 40/80m, sloper antennas for 10/15/20m and vertical 3x5/8 and directional antennas with
Below my simple and little station, but that gives me much joy.
The exact location of the station is21.565950 S, 45.433541 W - Grid Locator GG78gk74xe.
Currently my QSO�are recorded in the logbook QRZ.com and e-QSL.
Please, confirm your there too.
Besides amateur radio, there is also another hobby that I love : riding motorcycle.
In particular I like the off-road mode.
Direct contact with nature makes me feel even more part of it.
Already a long time, for over 30 years, that I participate in enduros and trails.
Below a photo of the motorcycle that I currently use for me to practice this sport.
