Biography

Born in 1954 and ham since 1971. My first callsign was PY2FRW. With that callsign I´ve worked and confirmed almost 300 DXCC countries. In 2004 I´ve changed the callsign to PY2XC, shorter and easier for DX, and restarted the DXCC hunting game from the very beginning. As a CW enthusiast,sometimes (but not frequenty) I venture in SSB, RTTY and PSK for DX, contests and, of course, learn and practice some other languages. Living in the very middle of a huge city (11.3 million inhabitants in the big city and 22.8 millions inhabitants in the metropolitan area) and due to space constraints, I have a 8 element Log Periodic that fits perfectly in my roof´s available area. As expected, man-made electromagnectic noise is frequently a nightmare. My transceiver is a quite old an reliable Kenwwod TS 50 S. A Collins 30L1 amplifier helps me a lot to be heard when the occasion demands. My QSOs are uploaded to several on-line QSLing and log sites such as QRZ, LoTW, ClubLog and eQSL in regular basis.

If you want my regular paper QSL card (Direct or Bureau) and want to receive it the fastest and cheapest way, request it at the ClubLog OQRS at the bottom of this page.
