Biography

Hello and thanks for visiting my profile!.

Brief History:

It all started on a Sunday 1 April evening in 1984. My first SWL callsign choice is CX-021 and got interested in DX early on. I spent the first year listening to international broadcasting using a Phillips AR-508 with three bands, MW, SW, FM. I remember that the Sunday April 1, 1984, that evening, I was bored, I tuned the SW band and I remember listening to weird foreign radio station on the shortwave channels very strong, and listened the first three international broadcasting: Radio Moscu, BBC and VOA. Later in 1985 I moved to listening HAM radio.

First SWL call sign as CX-021. In 1996 became to CXA6-700. My new SWL call sign changed to CX0021SWL (SWARL #3625). I heard HF 100% only in SSB and CW (sometimes some V/UHF). Primary interests: Searching for far DX stations, DX-peditions and contests.

I had a long period of inactivity from late 2000 to late 2013 while I was in USA, start again in 2013, so, I lost many DX-peditions for years, and would probably need to stop listening again if I move back to Spain. USA call sign WA4053SWL (SWARL #0267, e-QSL 110 Countries mixed CW/SSB as WA4053SWL and CX0021SWL)

> I don't send reports to DX stations based upon the cluster data and without hearing the DX station to pass reports and request the QSL.


> I don't use any software to read CW. CW is the art made for your ears, but not for your PC.


> Any organization that excludes SWLs from the definition of "Amateur Radio" is, firstly incorrect and secondly extremely shortsighted. Amateur radio isn't just about transmitting, it is about radio in all it's many forms. >
