49 years of continuous DX operation!

The year 2006, my ham golden jubilee. Middle century of 2-way radio operation.

I am have today 345 confirmed countries in SSB 14 MHz only and 139 in CW; 550 IOTA groups; 917 world islands; and 230 lighthouses situated in 52 countries of the six continents. (all in paper QSL card only).

At this time I have high interest to contacting operations "air mobile", "maritime mobile",lighthouses and also any stations situated behind the arctic and antarctic circles and also in the exotic areas of the earth in the places called as "the lost lands".

However, I will be continue active on the air now and forever more.


The picture is part of my shack showing my complete line Trio-Kenwood TS-510 of 1970 and one transceiver Delta DBR-550, also one historic telegraphic key used on the railroad of old steam times of Great Western Railway and by the Post Office. Using this key I have confirmed 139 countries around the world and make the WAZ. These are part of my loved and historic ham collection.
