Those were antennas I used in January 2013 operation as PY0F/PP1CZ

That is my work conditions in PY0F/PP1CZ during January 2013.

Operating time as PY0F/PP1CZ in January/2013 and the follow picture show the operation in July/2013 (using the structure of PY0FF antennas and station).

Here is a picture of the antennas I used in July 2013 and January 2014 from Fernando de Noronha Island - PY0F/PP1CZ. There are a A4S (04 elements Yagi to 10, 15 and 20 Meters) - the 02 elements Yagi to 40 Meters you see in the top of the tower was not working (as you might see, one of it's elements is missing a tube), as well as the A4S Rotor (the antenna is fixed all the time to north direction). The antennas and the radio shack belongs to PY0FF (thank you Andre and Morena for allow me use it). I chose a picture from a cloudy day, because it is better to view the antennas.

New Bungalow of Pousada da Morena, it will be ready in few weeks. We didn't stay there this time.

My wife and kids in the Dog's Beach.Note the stone hill behind they, it is just like a dog lying.That's why this Beach is called like that.

Me and kids at the Baia do Sancho. The sea wasn't good that day, due to a huge Swell achieve the Island during our stay (picture of 2013).

Me and kids at the Baia do Sancho in 2015, with a wonderful sea conditions (no more Swell during our stay in 2015).

There are thousands of birds that come to nest in Fernando de Noronha Island - is that a bird tree?

Anisotremus Susinamensis

A male Acanthurus sp.

A female Acanthurus sp. The difference between the male and the female of this fish is the collor.

An interesting view in this picture: what you see on the sea water is not dirt or pollution, as we may presume. It is a shoal of "sardinhas" (Sardinella Brasiliensis), and when there are some other fish or a human, they separate. So what you see surrounding a person in the center of this picture above, is a shoal of Sardinellas. Fascinating, in my oppinion.

You see the same Beach "Praia do Sancho", with the same shoal, below.


Sancho Beach - the most bautiful beach in Brazil.
