Hello Guys, this is KJ4BGW and my name is Ignacio. My QTH is in Florida, USA. First of all I want to say Thank you for visiting my page and also for the recent nice QSOs. It is always my pleasure meeting new friends from all over the globe. No matter how far apart we live neither what languages we speak; there are always ways to communicate and understand each other. That is one of the many reasons that make this hobby 'unique'. Well, let me come back in time a bit and start by saying I loved Ham Radio (and pretty much everything that has to do with electronics) since I was a teenager. Like many of you out there, my first steps on this amazing hobby started on 27 MHz (11 meter Citizen Band) in Havana, Cuba, where I was born. Then I got a novice license which allowed me to start 'making noise' on 160 meters band, where I was quite active. I also wanna say that prior to that I was a SWL (Short Wave Listener) for a long time. My first callsign was CL3CQC. Just after passing the second category exams I left the country and moved to Florida (USA) where I have been living for the last 9 years. Here, I got my first Amateur Ham Radio License in 2008. Since that moment I have been active on almost all bands, enjoying this Hobby to the fullest. I wish I could be more often on the air but unfortunately I live in an apartment building where outside antennas are prohibited. That makes it more difficult and frustrating, but not impossible.
So I had no other choice but setting up a mobile station, at least for the moment. Working from mobile has been a little difficult, especially when propagation does not help and signal reports from the other side do not sound that great, but at the same time I find it interesting and exciting. Sometimes I cannot believe I am talking to a station in Japan, Greece or Australia from my car with only 100 watts and the antenna at ground level. I would say most of my QSOs are from my mobile. Well, these are my working conditions at this moment: I run just about 100 watts and the rig is a YAESU Standard VX-1700. The antenna tuner is anMFJ-993B, which does a great job. I use a vertical antenna model HVT-400B, fromOPEK, which I personally think is a good one, considering it is a 10 bander and costs under fifty bucks.
What else to expect from something that cheap? It is cheap, lightweight, covers 10 bands, it is pretty easy to tune up and does the job, so I am happy with it. I definitely cannot complaint about it. I have worked so many stations from different countries in the last couple of years that I even bought another one. I will not say it is the best, but it works for me. There is no doubts about it!!
MY NEW PASSION! Well... this is is something new I have just added to my hobbies: Besides Ham Radio, Electronics, Computer and Photography now I am into HTMLand CSS. For those interested on the matter I sugest you to visit this website for a better definition of HTML and CSS. I am sure you will get a better explanation there. Just... and take a look by yourself. Just don't forget to come back!! Cause this is addictive! I am warning you!...
I have spent a lot of time reading, stdying and surfing the Internet trying to learn what I call "The Internet Language". And believe me, this is something amazing! I do regret I did not get into this before.
I know am far from calling myself a »Coder« as there is so much to learn yet, but I am willing to continue forward. Everyday I learn something new, something I did not know yesterday. There is a lot of good websites with plenty of information about this subject... ( to be continued) Thanks again guys for stopping by. Remember you're always welcome here so feel free to come back again. In the meantime I will look forward to work you again. Just stay tuned! Have a great day!! 73s!! KJ4BGW
