Biography

I started in amateur radio in 1993 with the callsign PU5KGB.
I followed the evolution of telecommunications, amateur radio satellites such as DOVE-17, MIR space station, meteorological satellites. I remember as a child seeing an HF radio connected to a Kantronics modem receiving synoptic letters and being printed on the primary 132-column dot matrix printers, from plate kits for radio amateurs to decode images from the GOES meteorological satellite into HRPT.
Since I was a child, I have been following amateur radio, building antennas, energy sources, modems and other devices. Following in the footsteps of my father PP5VAL Valdemiro (Silent Kye 2016), who always taught that pleasure is not in the finished things, but in creating them and understanding how they work. This was his hobby, which I learned to enjoy and move on.
I lived through it all, computers improved, became accessible and technology increasingly refined. The age has come to take the exam for the amateur radio call, the citizen's band.
Properly licensed for a long time I decoded 137 Mhz APT images from the NOAA polar satellites and spent sleepless nights in order to be able to connect to the MIR space station's BBS via Packet-Radio.
Now I start a new phase with my new PP5RG callsign, restart the log, new bands to use, it's evolution, we can't stop.
