Dear Ham Radio Op, Good day!
I´m Fernando, 40 years old (may 2016), Electrical Engineer, married with Alessandra and we have three daughters...Beatriz(15), Catherine(12) and Laura(08).
Started on the radio in 1999 at CB, after VHF (2m) and in 2000 arrived at HF bands.
Interrupted my time on the radio in 2003 and returned in 2009 from apartment building station and beach home. In May 2013 decided to search a nice place for contesting and after to find it, I disassembled my home station and beach station and, together other 04 friends we constructed the called ALTO DA SERRA CONTEST STATION (PX2A). This station is located only 35 kilometers south from Sao Paulo downtown and from there I'm operating sometimes DX and major SSB contests.
Early 2015, I changed the QTH to another building and installed a tower on the top of it with 60 meters from the ground (20 floors) with:
02 el. KLM 40m
03 el. SteppIR
02 x 09 el. Vertical phase for 2m
01 x 12 el. Horizontal phase for 2m
Rotator Yaesu G2800DXA
Vertical MA6000 for VHF and UHF
Rigs: FTDX5000 / IC9100 / ID5100
Amp: OM2500HF / OM 1002+
Main issue is to fight against the terrific noise level from urban area. Sorry if I can't copy you from home.
Thanks for visiting and hope to listen you on the air.
Fernando / PY2LED / PX2B
