I’m a 43 years old photographer born and raised in Puerto Rico. In love with surfing, cycling and rock climbing.

I got interested in ham in the 90s but I never went through with it. What got me interested again was when I came across SOTA, I thought it would be a great way to do something I already loved and revive a lost interest. In the Summer of 2022 I got my Technician license and Extra by November. I’ve activated most of the tallest summits in Puerto Rico and I also love travelling and activating summits anywhere I go.

Around February 2023 I started getting into CW and have not stopped since. Little did I know how deep into it I would get. Never would I think about learning CW and now it is my main mode of operating. I did my first CW contest this year and I’ve been trying to be as active as possible on CWT. I’m active every week on POTA and at least once a month I try to do SOTA. I have a YouTube channel (elradiohead) where I post some of my CW activities. I’m practicing every day to improve my conversational CW skills.

I feel honored to be a part of this club and look forward to contribute any way I can.
