Biography

Hello and thanks for visiting my profile.

Brief History:

It all started on a Sunday 1 April evening in 1984.

The firsts signals I picked up are the Radio Moscow, BBC and VOA, same evening, and I was fascinated that I was receiving a broadcast very strong from the other side of the world on the shortwave channels.

This was before the internet existed and cable TV, so getting live news and programming directly from the other side of the world was uncommon.

I spent the first year listening to international broadcasting using a Phillips AR-508 with three bands, MW, SW, FM. Later in 1985 I moved to listening to HAM radio bands.

My first SWL callsign choice as CX-Ø21 (1984) and got interested in DX early on.

In 1996 became to CXA6-7ØØ (Oriental Radio Club). My new SWL call sign changed to CXØØ21SWL (SWARL S3625). USA call sign WA4Ø53SWL (SWARL #Ø267). Now in Spain my SWL call sign is EAØØ21SWL (SWARL #9334).

I listen HF frequencies, Ham bands only DXing mode AM, CW and SSB ( No digital mode or decoding software)

Primary interests: Searching for far DX stations, DX-peditions and contests.

ARRL DXCC Current List 34Ø: I have confirmed 325 entities mixed CW/SSB (and a handful of deleted entities).

What is there left to listen:

3B7 Agalega & St. Brandon Is. ⇔ 3Y (Bouvet) ⇔ BS7 Scarborough Reef ⇔ CEØ (San Felix & San Ambrosio) ⇔ EZ Turkmenistan ⇔ FT/G Glorioso Is. ⇔ FT/X Kerguelen Is. ⇔ JY Jordan ⇔ KH8 (Swains I.) ⇔ KP5 Desecheo I. ⇔ P5 DPRK ⇔ PY0S St. Peter & St. Paul Rocks ⇔ VKØ (Macquarie I.) ⇔ VQ9 Chagos Is. ⇔ YVØ Aves I.
