Ham Member Lookups: 19743

 

I have been a ham since March 1981, while I was at college, at the age of 19. Two years later I upgraded to Extra class.

CW has always been my great passion and when I am on the radio 99,9% of the time is spent with the paddles between my fingers.

(Occasional JT-65 / JT-9 operation may also be possible.)

I am a member of several telegraphy clubs – CT-CW, SKCC, Marconista, HSC, VHSC and SHSC just to mention a few.

I enjoy contesting, DXing and ragchewing both QRQ and QRS depending on the operator on the other side.

I am a SOTA enthusiast and can occasionally be found monitoring the recommended frequencies or operating from a summit.

At home I usually run an old most enjoyable Icom IC-765 at 90 watts into a TH6-DXX antenna, a 17m dipole, a 30m Inverted "V", a 40m Delta Loop, or a 6m 3-element Yagi (with a 12-watt Xverter).

When I’m operating portable the rig is a Ten-Tec Scout at 10 watts, battery powered, and the antenna is a YO-YO-VEE, portable inverted vee dipole, from HamRadioFun.com. The key is a Palm Radio mini-paddle which I enjoy very much.

For a living I have been teaching Portuguese at a local High School since 1983 and in spite of the ever growing difficulties I still enjoy what I’m doing.

We have probably met on the radio and I' ll be looking forward to meeting you again.

Thanks for looking me up.

Take a look at a CW QSO with VU2PHD (TKS, Mat), seen from the other side:


Here is the recognition of an achievement I prize a lot because I did it with a very modest setup - IC-765 + TH6-DXX - at my home station, from a not so good location:

 

 


- The mode?

- CW, of course!


No more QSOs without a confirmation...

PS: If you need a paper QSL, please send yours direct with SASE. I am no longer a member of the QSL bureau.
