My grandmother was a telegraphist for the main telephone company in my country, when I was 6 years old I went to my grandmother workplace and heard the telegraph sounds and I asked her what was that , she answered me that thosesounds was a message from another country or city, I thought for myself that was a joke from my grandmother but when I heard her explanation I was captured for the radio magic and since that day its been a part of my soul. I started as a SWL amateur since 1976 when I was 13 years old. I obtained my general license in 1992, and my Extra in 2005, I upgraded to my actual callsign HC2S.
