About MIKE, Miguel Gonzalez A. (ZP5YW)

Hello and thanks for reading this. I was born in 1956 and was licensed in October 1975. Dedicated to DX since first qsos. Spent an almost equal amount of time on-air and off-air during these years because of studies and work duties. My main interests are DX chasing and digital modes.

Awards: #1 HR DXCC (351/340 entities Phone & Mixed, only ZP in HR), 9 bands DXCC (5BDXCC #3210 + 12 + 17 + 30 meters endorsements + 6m DXCC #397), CW DXCC, Digital DXCC, Millennium DXCC, DXCC Challenge (1670+ level), WAS, Triple-Play WAS, 50 Mhz WAC, WAZ, eDX100, eWAS, ePFX300, and others..

Member of: EPC # 19023, 30MDG # 6092, life member of Radio Club Paraguayo, former vice-president, member of the Board, qsl and awards manager.

Current activity: mostly JT65HF, JT9-1, PSK-63, RTTY, SSB and very little CW on all bands from 6 to 80 meters. S&P on major contests "just for fun", but contest logs are allways sent to confirm mutipliers and contacts with others. If you've worked me on JT65 and/or JT9 please don't call for a duplicate qso on the same band/mode. Give the chance to others.

Station setup: HF: Kenwood TS-590S, Drake L4-B amplifier (fully updated) with MFJ-989B tuner and Ameritron ALS-600S amplifier (no-tune for quick band changes) with LDG AT-1000 ProII autotuner (unbelievable). MFJ-1026 noise reducer/signal enhancer.

6 Meters: Yaesu FT-736R (50/144/430 mhz), Mirage A-1015G amplifier, Yaesu FT-680R (backup rig).

VHF-UHF: 144-220-440 Mhz Kenwood FM rigs for local contacts and assorted accesories.


Antenna system: Tower 1: (self supporting 20 meters high) HyGain TH6DXX @ 20mH (10-15-20 meters), 40 meters coil-loaded rotary dipole @ 22 mH, homebrew 6 el 7m boom yagi for 6 meters @ 24mH. Inverted V dipole for 75/80 meters.

Tower 2: (self supporting 12 meters high) homebrew 6 elements dual-monoband yagis, 3 el for 12 meters + 3 el for 17 meters with open-sleeve direct feed @ 13mH, 2 elements coil loaded yagi for 30 meters (derived from a 40m yagi) @ 16mH.

Auxiliary antennas: Butternut HF9V vertical (6-80 meters), with elevated radials (few but useful as monitoring aid), flag antenna for low bands reception with DXE pre-amp and ICOM AH-7000 VHF-UHF discone antenna.
