My name is Renner, i am 29 years old and have been on the air since 2003 when i got my license. I enjoy Contesting, DXing and DXpeditioning. I have been very active on almost all HF bands including 6 meters. During contests i usually join in with PW7T Contest team from Fortaleza, Brazil. I enjoy dxpeditioning and IOTA operations.
I enjoy IOTA operations. Maybe that is due to the fact that many of them are "outdoor" operations in vacations style. I enjoy the pile-ups, the bigger, the best! HI!. I have had the opportunity to work from some SA IOTA groups as follows:
I enjoy contests. I have had the pleasure to work on many of them on the last few years. Most of my participations are in Multi Operators category even though, when there is no group operation i take place in single operator categories. From PW7T i have had the oportunity to work more than 50 editions of CQWW and WPX contests. Some of them we had very good scores and even beating some known caribean contest stations. As single operator my best personal achivements were on CQ WPX CW 2007, when i got 1st place world wide on 40m SOSB(A)HP, breaking the world record that time. Last year, 2013, i worked the CQWW SSB 2013 on 15m SOSB(A)LP and i think i did a good job - still waiting for the final results.
As i told before, i usually join the contests in multi-op category, that is just when nobody (except me) can join in a multi-op effort. Talking about multi-op participations there were a couple of good scores. Our best took place in CQ WPX CW 2012 when we broke the world wide record in Multi-Two category. That was our first - 1st place WW.
DXCC & CHALLENGE
Nowadays i have #327 worked and #324 confirmed DXCC countries in mixed modes (CW/SSB). Now i am trying to improve my score in separate modes and per band confirmations. I personally prefer paper QSL card confirmations.I do confirm via LotW too, but no e-QSL. I try to upload my logs monthly at least.
Recently i ordered my DXCC Challenge plaque. I have worked more than 2,000 DXCC-Band. My goal is to reach the 3,000 DXCC-band status. That is quite difficult from my region, mainly due to 6 meters. I live 7dgr South from Equator line, so the opennings are very marginal. By now, i have about 1,400 DXCC-Band QSLs and will order soon my 2nd Challenge medallion, when reach 1,500 DXCC-Band.
My station is based at Timbauba, State of Pernambuco - Brazil (HI22il). It is located at my parent's home. The station is composed by:
Rig: Yaesu FT-2000 (with AC0C roofing filter - works great!)
HOW TO GET MY QSL?
There are two ways to get my card in hands:
1. Via Clublog OQRS or
2. Via Direct Request;
PS.: Sorry, there is no bureau currently working in PY7.
1. Clublog OQRS - (Online QSL Request System)
This is the safer, quicker and easiest mode to receive my QSL card.
Search for your QSOs on the logs below and proceed the checkout through Clublog / PayPal.
If you are registered in Clublog you must be logged first on their website to proceed with the search & request.
2. Direct QSL Request
All the direct QSL requests must be sent to:
PSE Include 2 USD* (or 1 IRC) + SASE. It is enough to send a simple letter to any country from PY.
* Please prefer to send IRC instead of USD.
Ps.: I collect Stamps & Paper Money. I Would appreciate if you could send me any ;)
All my QSOs are uploaded to LOTW monthly.
