Keko Diez TI5KD
|Our host for the 2010, 2011
and 2012 trips Carlos (Keko) Diez was first
licensed in 1980 as TI2KD. I soon became interested in
building, DX, and low power operating. Have done most of
my tower and
antenna constructing since.
Having been a high school Science and Biology teacher for several years in the past, I enjoy passing on what I have learned. Amateur Radio has been a great activity through which I have made many friends around the world. We share time here in Costa Rica with some, or visit with them while traveling abroad.
Most of my ham activities center around DXing on HF and VHF, contesting, DXpeditioning besides participation in events like Field Day, Jamboree on the Air, Kids Day, IOTAs and Emergency Communications, under several call signs.
As an active member of TI0RC, the Costa Rica Radio Club, we promote educational ham activities among the newcomers and keep together to enhance our hobby.
