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 with only 100 watts:

YAESU FT-950 with SDR Dongle installed with a Yaesu MD-100a8x Mic, MFJ-4230MV 30 amps power supply, Astatic D-104 Black Special (Reconditioned by Me) DAIWA SWR & Power Meter and Icom IC-706 MKIIG.

My antennas: Vertical dual band Comet GP-6 2m & 440m, Vertical Antron 99 for 10m, Homebrew inverted V wire dipoles for 20 & 40 meters, Homebrew vertical antenna for 17m. Homebrew 3 element yagi for 6m.

A little about my self. 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 but only some times. I study computer programming, later computer repair and networking. In 2015 I  study and certified as welder.

I served in the United State Armed Forces as a Military Police in the U.S. ARMY Reserve from 2005-2013, Also worked as a Chief Security Officer (Night shift) in a private company for 8 years. Right now im home unemployed!.

Well that’s it for now!!! I hope you like to know I little bit about me & I hope to hear from you again… 73!
