The CW5W Story - Jorge Diez CX6VM
June 2014
How did I become a ham radio operator? Between the 50's and 60's, my mother started with this hobby, without knowing what it was. My parents had a farm, where they lived and the only way to communicate was with an old homebrew radio for 160m. The farm was 30 km. away from the city of Melo, and the road in those years was a dirt track. In the middle it had a wood ridge; when it rained it got covered by the water, so you can understand how useful the radio was.

My mother knew some ham's in Uruguay and later they introduced her to "real" ham radio with good equipment that covered all HF bands.

I was born in June 1968. In 1985 I got a license to operate as a second operator of my mother Sonnia, CX4VA. I spent most of my time on 40 talking with CX, LU and PY and occasionally with other South American hams. I got some friends, but I needed more. I didn't like very much long chats; I liked to contact DX stations and receive their QSL cards along with stamps, photos etc.    more
