As you can see my home page is under construction.
I live in Santiago, Chile. I use to be CE3-THK but due to the changes in the law I had to switch to this new call sign CA3-THK, as many chilean amateurs. Today I have very good news, at least for me, I recovered my CE3-THK call sign so now I can operate all the ham bands with almost no restrictions ....that is GREAT !
For many years I use to listen to International radios such as BBC , Deutsche Welle, Radio French international, Radio Moscow and many, many others. Then I got a CB transceiver and started my contacts and made many friends in Chile and all over America (by America I mean northen, central and south America). Then a friend of mine, CA3-CKG, asked me to get a "serious" amateur licence so I started to study raw and ugly morse in order to get my first amateur license.
So here I'm linking the old and new worlds together....
Currently my shack is composed by Icom Transceivers (HF and VHF/UHF). Most of the time I do VHF/UHF with my friends CA3-CKG and CD-106 (I hope to help these folks to set-up their Home Pages soon !) using my IC-2710 but when I have enough time I do as much HF (40 meters) as I can because it is so exiting for me to answer a call without to know where that call came from. I love the background HF noise and the efforts you have to do to clarify the speech of the other person. HF, is the best amateur band by far ! . You can reach me in 147.830 MHz or 7095 MHz and during the working hours of Chile Mar y Tierra Network in 21.315 Mhz from 00:00 to 01:00 UTC ( www.geocities.com/redchilemarytierra )
Please take a
moment to view this link. Bad things could happen to our hobbie if we do not
push our authorities in order to keep the radio amateur bands for non comercial
