My little history...
When I was only a child I used to play with my favourite toy: a couple of walky-talky.... In late 1994 at my universitary student age I don´t know How but one day I was reading a newspaper and suddenly I saw in "Shell & Buy Used" Section a cheap second hand Radio transceiver. I did not know about this hobby of Radio but y bought that equipmet... I was sure it was goint to like me!
It was an old Super Star 360FM, a classic CB equipment, but I didn´t know nothing. I was half year in 40 CB channels, practising, making friends and learning about tecnic themes, antennas, equipments, Radio operation, etc. Then I get my first License (It was my student age and I hadn´t enoughtmoney) I started in SSB operation and I discovered then my two favourited Modes: DX and Digital Comunications.
I was four years, amazing a lot on this way, I thought all Radio was 11 meters, but I started to listen about Amateur Licenses... Quickly I obtained my Class B Amateur Award in 1998 year althought I had to wait one year to buy mi first VHF equipment.
Before this I began to practice Radio Packet, Repeaters, Satellite operation, APRS, etc. and when I had my first job I spent my first salary on my first decametric transceiver (MKIIG) after this my Station transceivers were better and better. Then in 2000 year I pass Class C exams and CW for EC License and nowadays I have First class License and I am still very active on Radio on different modes (DX, contest, digital modes, expeditions, SAT, etc) as mobile, portable and fixed station.
