Hi, thanks for your time visiting this address at QRZ.com.


I enjoy DXing and contests as well, but I'm also very active on local ragchewing on 2 meters FM.

As of December, 2015, I've worked 198 countries, mainly on 10 meters, which is the best band I'm allowed to operate for DXing.

Unfortunately, Brazil is one country that still requires a Morse code testing in order to upgrade to higher operating classes. There are three operating classes, from "C" class to "A" class, being the "A" class the more avanced, similar to Extra in the United States.

I'm a "C" class operator, licensed back in late 2010.

Since I don't want to learn the code just to upgrade to higher classes, I've got to do my best on 10 and 12 meters phone, or 15 meters digimodes when it comes to DXing.

It's not that I don't like the code; The fact is that I disagree with code being an obligation for upgrading. When (and wether) local rules change, I'll try to go ahead on the hobby. By now, I'm pretty satisfied with what I have. It's been lots of fun. Let's see what happens from now on, with the present solar cycle going to a probably long low ahead!

And, YES! What you can see at the heading of this page it is a picture of myself in front of an original, Second World War, Supermarine Spitfire.

This wardbird is kept in flight conditions at the TAM (the air company) Museum, some 80 km away from my QTH.

These are my antennas for HF, V-UHF work.

The three-element, tri-band Yagi with the moon shining behind it.

This is the result of my 2013 CQWPX effort - a nice world 2nd place for the "rookie" overlay category (5th in the general world ranking).

And that's the way the station looks like today at PU2STZ:

Station's general view.

 

Yaesu FT-2000-D with DMU-2000 at the main operating position.

 

An ICOM IC-7600, with the new 2.0 firmware version already running. What a good job by ICOM!

 

A classic: Yaesu FT-101-E in pristine conditions, used exclusively for 80 meters work. What a receiver audio!
