Biography

I have been a ham since March 1981, while I was at college, at the age of 19. Two years later I upgraded to Extra class.

CW has always been my great passion and when I am on the radio 99,9% of the time is spent with the paddles between my fingers.

(Occasional JT-65 / JT-9 / FT-8 operation may be possible.)

I am a member of several telegraphy clubs – CT-CW, GPCW, SKCC, BUG, Marconista, HSC, VHSC and SHSC just to mention a few.

I enjoy contesting, DXing and ragchewing both QRQ and QRS depending on the operator on the other side.

I have recently (2018) become a "bug" lover and I spend great moments of pure pleasure sending Morse code with one of my Vibroplex keys or with my "coffin" Hi-Mound BK-100 bug.

I am a SOTA enthusiast and can occasionally be found monitoring the recommended frequencies or operating from a summit.

At home I usually run a most enjoyable Icom IC-7300 at 95 watts into a TH6-DXX antenna, a 17m dipole, a 30m Inverted "V", a 40m Delta Loop, or a 6m 3-element Yagi.

When I’m operating portable the rig is a Ten-Tec Scout at 10 watts, battery powered, and the antenna is a YO-YO-VEE, portable inverted vee dipole, from HamRadioFun.com. The key is a Palm Radio mini-paddle which I enjoy very much.

We have probably met on the radio and I' ll be looking forward to meeting you again.

Thanks for looking me up.

Best 73

Carlos
