Hi there and thank you for looking me up. Pls. refer to my main call IK2SGL for my biography.
This station is located in the Amazon Forest, Peru. I'm active mostly on Mondays.
I am active on 6-160meters.
Radio: Kenwood 480sat
Ampl.: None, (if you have an old spare one to donate...HI:)
Antennas: Home-made delta loops one element for 40,20,17. These deltas have been built by using a 50-year-old phone cable that had been thrown away. I just collected it, joined all the pieces and wired. It seems it works, hi. Inverted L antenna for 40-80-160meters.
I moved to the Peruvian selva with my wife Sally. We are international volunteers in a worldwide education program. We contact and help the indigenous people of the region: the Shipibo-Conibo people. There is nothing better than help others and use our own energies and resources to give a hope to people. I firmly believe that the Holy Bible does give good counsels and a real hope for the future. (Psalms 37:10,11,29) We are not paid nor do we have a confortable life as we used to have but we are happy. I have very little time for radio but I enjoy contacting people al over the world and practising my Italian,English,Spanish,Tagalog and now Shipibo.
The area 8 of Peru is pretty rare. At the moment I have no news of other hams active in the area. So if you need this prefix, just look for me aroung 22.00utc on 20 meters. I also have a twitter channel where I usually tweet when I am on air.
I upload my qso on LOTW and EQSL on a regular basis.
As for paper qsl pls. follow the below details:
BUREAU: via IK2AQZ qsl Manager
DIRECT: NOT RECOMENDED.Here in Peru sending mails is VERY expensive. Only for USA we pay 9.70 nuevos soles (abt. 3 USD). I higly recomend to use one of the above methods to get my qsl.
Anyway if you wish to send it direct pse. send me an email where I can provide an address here in the Peruvian selva and I will reply direct.
DO NOT SEND DIRECT TO THE MANAGER. CONTACT ME FIRST AND I WILL PROVIDE A PERUVIAN ADDRESS WHERE TO SEND. IF DIRECT WILL BE SENT TO MANAGER HE WILL REPLY VIA BURO NO MATTER THE CONTRIBUTION. PLEASE FOLLOW CAREFULLY THIS NOTE IN ORDER TO AVOID MISUNDERSTANDINGS.
4 USDs for Europe and USA+ SAE
5 USDs for Asia, Africa + SAE
- PLEASE -- NO IRCs -
If the contribution is not sufficient or no SAE, the qsl will be sent via Buro. USD can be sent into the envelope but it's risky and may be stolen. I would recomend the Paypal option.
I apologize for these costs but I cannot afford direct anymore as I am a fulltime volonteer in the Amazon Forest at no wage.
