Hello and Greetings from the Island of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Dear Colleagues. After many years enjoying the radio frequency in 11 meters, I become an Amateur Radio Operator, since Sept /24/1996 with the license NP3FY with (5 word per minute) CW approved. I'm originally from the city of Coamo in the south center of the island, since 1996 Im living in the city of Arecibo in the north cost of the island with my wife and my daughters for the last 20 years.
My primary activity in the radio frequency is for HF SSB DX’s, I work on 2 meter & 440 MHz, also works Satellite, Psk31, Slow scan TV, JT65 & right now in 2016 after many yrs im doing a come back to work CW.
I am running a very simple but effective station:
Yaesu FT-900AT (Not in sevice after 21 Yrs), Yaesu MD-100 Mic, 2 power Supply an Astron RS-35M & Nippon America 35 amps (have been Sold), DAIWA SWR & Power Meter, Antron 99 Vertical Antenna for 10/12 meters, Inverted V wire dipoles for 20/40/80 meters mono bands all are giving me "good" results. In VHF & UHF: Icom IC-2350H Dual Band Radio with a Shure PG-58 Desktop Mic, Comet GP-6 Vertical Dual Band Antenna, Yaesu VX-7R Handy. My old CW key it was my grandfather & when he pass my Dad have it & many yrs later my Dad gave it to Me!... I remember my Dad said it was from an old rail road station in Buffalo N.Y.

Talking about my self and my profession, well I was a singer from one of the most important musical group here in Puerto Rico since Sept 1994; the name of the group is Caña Brava, which means Brave Cane. The music we perform was Merengue, originally from the Dominican Republic. I’m in the musical business since 1987 when I was in high school, Im still singing some times now. I study computer programming, later computer repair and networking. I am retired from the United State Armed Forces since December 2013, I served as a Military Police in the U.S. ARMY Reserve. In the weeks days i used to work as a Chief Security Officer (Night shift) in a private company for 8 years, but right now im unemployed!.
My family: My wife Yaritza, My daughters Tanyi is 19 years old and Kiari is 9 years old. Well that’s it for now!!! I hope you like to know I little bit about my family and me & I hope to hear from you again…
