ITU 12, CQ 09, Grid square FK60ol (FK60ol28qp)
Former YV5HUJ (from 1979 to dec 2011), I'm now YV5EN (from 2012 onwards)

73 to all and many thanks for visiting here on QRZ.com I hope you are reading this because we've just had a QSO!

My primary ham radio interest is chasing DX so I would like to share with you my CW and my QRP CW DXCC entities QSL cards gallery.

My name is Edwin Rivera, I was born on 1957 in Caracas Venezuela, married to Aurita YV5JGU since 1989.
I'm almost 100% CW operator and I started my hamlife on 1978, getting my hamradio certificate on march 16, 1979.
80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, and 10m have been my favorite bands. Although not so fluently but I speak some English, un petit peux de Français and Spanish.

I really enjoy calling CQ and make QSOs at high speed (QRQ) but I'm always opened to slow down my CW speed to comply with the one of my correspondent.
So please, if some day you hear me and you want to contact me at slower speed, do not hesitate to call me and ask me for QRS or QRSS because it will be a pleasure for me to have a CW QSO with you at a very slow speed.

About QSLs: I take QSLing seriously.
  • ALL cards I receive will be answered for sure! (100%)
  • I'm one of those operators who REALLY LIKE PAPER QSLs so please send me yours
  • OQRS (Online QSL Request Service) by ClubLog is available and it will be answered the same week than your request but anyway please send me your QSL via buro because I would like to have yours too.
  • Cards received directly will be answered directly (normally within one week). I will appreciate you send SASE + IRC, NO money please.
  • QSLs via bureau will be answered in the same way.
  • e-mail requests with QSO details will be QSLed via the bureau within the same week but I kindly ask you for a paper QSL also via the bureau.
  • I upload every week my recent QSOs to the Log of the World (LoTW) but again I will appreciate to see your paper QSL card in my album.
  • Please NO eQSL and NO QRZ Logbook.

Not only QRO but also I love to work HF CW from less than 1 watt output (QRPp) up to 5 watts output (QRP).
- Heathkit HW-8 (manufactured on 1975) for 80, 40, 20 and 15m, adjusted to 1 watt output.
- Elecraft KX1 (acquired on nov '09) for 40 and 20m bands, 4.5 to 5 watts.

Antennas are vertical (hy-gain 14AVQ or mobile mast) and inverted V dipoles.

My QRP and QRPp tiny rigs:

Most often you will hear me working CW with my Bencher® BY-2 Iambic paddle connected to my homemade digital CMOS keyer but I run my homemade iambic paddle or my Palm Radio® Mini-Paddle when I'm portable.
