First brazilian station to work Oceania via satellite, in nostalgic and historic contact between PR7CPK, Brasil, and KH6IJ, Katashi Nose (SK), Hawaii, via AO-7, 1976, on the golden years of amateur radio via AMSAT-OSCAR satellite program. Later, I has contacted also some other Pacific areas.

37 years of continuous DX operation!

The year 2006, my ham golden jubilee. Middle century of 2-way radio operation.

I am have today 318 confirmed countries in SSB and 138 in CW, 506 IOTA groups, 828 world islands, and 176 lighthouses situated in 50 countries of five continents.

At this time I have high interest to contacting operations "air mobile", "maritime mobile", lighthouses and also any stations situated behind the arctic and antarctic circles and also in the exotic areas of the earth in the places called as "the lost lands".
