My whole name is Francisco Luis Escobar Bay, normally I use "Luis" in DX work.

In local QSO`s and in spanish language I use the nickname "Pancho".

My first contact with amateur radio was when I was twelve years old when a school teacher make a demonstration in classroom whith his rig label "Geloso", in AM and CW.

I began from this fact with electronic experiences and transmissions like second operator in CX2FD teacher`s station, where I learn CW, for ever my principal mode of operation.

In 1972 I obtain the call CX7AF, and began operations with homebrew rigs, including multibands SSB and CW transceivers.

My real job is Hystopatologic Technician, but thanks to my chief hobby (another hobbies: photography and video and music; piano, guitar and accordion) I applied for a Job like engeneer in uruguayan governement broadcasting and I obtain a place! Thanks to Ham Radio...

I am a member of RADIO CLUB URUGUAYO and RADIO GRUPO SUR, and I am a part of club teams in contests and activations.

Also, I have part in the Team Contest CW5W.

In CW, I use a Hi-Speed EK-100 autokeyer or a MFJ 400 / Bencher BY-1 or a LOGIKIT CMOS-4 keyer with MFJ-564 key.

Antennas: Because the architecture of the building I can`t place a tower neither a beam antenna, then I trasmit whith dipoles, verticals and a end-fire wire of 80 meters long. In mobile and portable HF operation I use a Hustler MO-2 vertical antenna. Now I am very active in portable operation, see in Facebook the group: Amateur Radio Portable/Mobile - Radioaficionados Portátil/Móvil and join !

Well, thank for your interest.
