About me

Thanks for visiting my web page.

My name is Horacio. I am vintage 1964 and live in Buenos Aires city just a 15-minutes´drive from downtown.
I got my first ham radio license in 1982 and have always been attracted to DX´ing and lately to Contesting.
I have fond memories of exciting communications with exotic places and friends from the days long before the Internet and that fascination still lies deep within me and I am as excited about it all today as I was at that time. Best of all, I have always liked meeting people from all around the world and having a nice QSO!
As a traveler, I often carry a VHF/UHF portable radio with me wherever I go, and I have met many hams around the world this way. However, my main interest is HF, I have transformed one of the rooms in my house into a great ham radio shack/office with lots of toys and a cozy atmosphere, and visiting Hams are always welcome to stop by for a cup of coffee or LU-Meeting dinner. For quite a long time I’ve been trying to make the “new generation” more involved in our hobby so if you like to share experiences do not hesitate to contact me.
