Hi, my name is Felipe and I was born in Belo Horizonte (MG) in December of 1991. I received my first amateur radio licence as PU4FSC (class C) in 2009 with 17 years old, in 2013 my class B radio licence as PY4WD and in 2014 also as PY4WD my class A amateur radio licence. I am mostly active on HF with CW and digital modes, also on VHF and UHF in digital modes and satellites. I run an APRS Igate in my city (PY4WD-1) which integrates the Brazilian APRS network and my Hobbies are designing and building antennas, most of my antennas were made by myself.

Today I live in Rio Acima, a small gold mining town 20 km southeast of Belo Horizonte(capital of MG) and study Aerospace Engineering at UFMG (Federal University of state of Minas Gerais) since 2011. Minas gerais (translating: "General Mines) is a state of wonders, with his mountains, rivers and waterfalls. The state main economic activity is gold, iron, manganese and niobium mining. I'am a member of LABRE (Brazilian Amateur Radio League), where I help with the QSL Bureau.

QSL: I collect Paper QSL cards and I will appreciate yours. All QSL received via the Bureau will be replied via the Bureau. All QSL received via Direct will be replied via direct without SASE, IRC, or green stamp needed. For direct senders, just please write your address clearly and standardized to be sure that you will receive my card.

73! Felipe.
