I became a ham in August 1997. It was through Scouting (Jamboree on the Air) where I first saw a radio. Since then every year I participate in every JOTA and help Scouts to be in touch with ham radio.
The first contest I did was at LU4FM in October 1997 (Multi-Multi category). Since then I've never missed a CQ WW SSB! Passionate about DX, especially on VHF. LoTW fan! Since 2006 I started operating in the SOAB category (SO2R) where I obtained several LU records (SSB and CW) and also won the CQ WPX Triathlon in 2012. Currently I help at LU5FB (Circulo de Radioaficionados Rosario) to train new hams. I have participated in a few IOTA DXpeditions as 3G7C (Chiloƈ Island) and LU6W (Isla Escondida) and operated contests from CE3, CX, PY, PJ4, and OH. I have participated in two WRTC (Finland and Brazil).
