20th September 2010, I add this great luxury QRP machine, an Elecraft K2 temporaly keyed by Palm Radio Mini-Paddle.

I bought this K2 second hand to Leon NE0N and Gerald W7CKW, the Cluff brothers, they are excellent and serious sellers

The starlings like the "magic band"!!! Look as was the 6M7JHV on the afternoon of November 13, 2011, with gray clouds behind

On the top photo, you can see me at the contest place shack.

My RIGs are:K3 + P3, Alpha 91b, FT-1000D, K-2, FT-817nd and TS-790E.

I was born on April 19th 1950 in Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

There were two Radioamateurs in my family. First one was my older brother Mario LU8DBX (SK) and later it was my father Alberto LU1DBK (SK). I keep good memories from those days , especiallyof 1958, when my brother worked JAstations on the 50Mhz band, AM mode, with 30W from one 807 tube and home-made 2 el. Quad antenna. I spent a lot of time in his shack. Then at the age of 10, I joined the Delta Radio Club LU1DRC. There, I learnt CW with Alfredo Luciano LU6DJX (SK) as the teacher. Lessons were on Sunday morning and my brother and I used to go together to the radio club on his “Lambretta” motorcycle. In 1963 I got the “Novice class” LU1DHR callsign and I was mainly active in “CW” on the HF bands.

In 1973 I married my wife Esther. She wasborn in Pamplona and went, at young age, with his parents to Argentina . In 1974 we made the decision to immigrate to Spain and we’ve lived in Pamplona, Navarra since then.

I got my first Spanish callsign (EC2GR) in September 1980, thus becoming a “Novice” again! In October 1981, I got the first class category license as EA2ALW and in October 1983, I changed it to my current callsign EA2LU, which allows me to be both EA and LU at a time, hi!

I’m mainly a CW man, but have explored all bands, modes and types of propagation. For many years I was active on the V-UHF bands working contest from the top of mountains in Navarra Pyrenees. I won several 144Mhz “EA” contest, but my best prize came in September 1997 when I won the “IARU region 1 VHF Contest”.It’s been the only time ever that a Spanish station has achieved the privilege to be European Champion in this contest.EME was another type of propagation that I worked hard on the 144/432 and 1296 Mhz bands. Now a days I’m only EME active on 23cm band. Although I was concentrated on VHF, I have always made my daily CW QSOs on the HF bands. Since the year 2000 I have quitted climbing mountains to take part on VHF contest and have switched into HF contesting activity. Then Istarted my “Top Band” experience and fell in love with this band like I did with theEME before.

I’m not a hard DXCC hunter, but even though I holdHF DXCC, 160M DXCC, 50Mhz DXCC and have worked 84 DXCC countries on 144Mhz. I also have WAC on 50/144/432 Mhz.

I have lately got interested on QRP operation and I joined the ARCI QRP Club. I have also taken part in two ARCI QRP contest: theFall 2009 and the Spring 2010. It was a very fun experience enjoying radio as never before with only 5 watts out and not having the permanent noise of my Alpha 91b fan. Often you can find me on the QRP frecuencies, calling CQ or looking for friends.
