Amateur Radio Station since 1997

I started amateur radio at the age of 20 years old, by using VHF/UHF and experimenting contacts over meteorscatter and satellites. Then in 2004, I got HF priviledges and started DXing on all available HF bands. Initially in SSB, then in 2006 in Digital, and finally make my first CW QSOs in 2012

I'm focused on DXCC and IOTA awards, but also enjoy chasing grid squares on Digital or 50MHz, as well as chasing US counties or others regional based awards. I also operate any major contests either from my home or some nice contests stations around the world

Another important part of my amateur radio hobby is traveling to organise and participate to dxpeditions. I enjoy both solo travel, or being part of a small group of friends, focusing on getting a full performant station installed in remote isolated places

I also hold Spanish residency with callsign EC3TZ (ED3V in contests), and I'm currently President of the Clipperton DX Club
