                                    BIOGRAPHY

           During 1950-1959, when communication between the cities of San Isidro del General and San Jose (100 miles) was hard , using ham radio equipment was vital, especially during natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes. And even more so when conventional communication via telephone and telegraph failed.

Enthusiasm for ham radio awoke in my father Fernando Paez (TI2FPS), who started the hobby as a method of communication for his businesses  in the gas station industry and the  transport of livestock and produce. At the young age of 9, I made my first communication in the 40mts band with a Heathkit DX 40, a short wave receptor  and an antenna dipolo held by two bamboo poles. The first QSO took place during October 1959 with TI80CH,.

And so was the beginning of an activity that  has given me great satisfaction and peace throughout fifty years.  I have made great friends both locally and internationally.  My inclination has been towards DX and contests.  I have even been included in the  ARRL Honor Roll  with over 350 countries, specifically in Phone (SSB).

I had been part of the TI1C contest group, with whom we have participated and won several international contests. In several occasions we have been accompanied by famous operators from the United States.  Also, as TI2CC I have obtained great international positions. I have been part of expeditions to Cocos Island (TI9CF, TI9CC, TI9C) as well as in site missions during the earthquakes in Nicaragua, Mexico and El Salvador.

Having retired as an Horticulture Engineer,  specializing in International Commerce, as of 2012, I have dedicated part of my time to my favorite hobby and I hope to enjoy more time with my radio friends as well as getting back into contests and expeditions.

I am constantly renovating my equipment and antennas, because I like to be heard well around the world.
