Welcome to My Website Last update: December 26, 2014
In January 2014, after 47 years of DX activity as IV3PRK, I closed the station and moved to Ecuador where I got the callsign HC1PF. I carried down all the equipment and so, in the new house, the shack is the same as it was in Italy. Of course I couldn't bring with me also the big tower but I will try my best on 160 meters from this new location (see this page).
In the last 25 years I had been active only on 160 meters, keeping daily records and graphs of the band DX conditions and the related (or not related) solar and geomagnetic data. The daily DX conditions section was regularly updated with the current month graph and the correspondent past periods. All the geographical graphs show, on a regular basis, how the band conditions changed through the solar cycles.
All this activity ended with the year 2013, but I keep all the material still available on this website. (including the Pacific DXpeditions page). Hopefully I will start again with new graphs from this quite different location.
At the same time I will add to the receiving antennas section all the projects I'm going to realize here in Ecuador.
IV3PRK (left) reached 160m. DXCC # 306 - here how the numbers grew through the solar cycles....now HC1PF (right) must start all over again for a new challenge at 70 years !
