About me

WELCOME to my WEB page!. My name is JOSE V. GAVILA. I live in Spain, at about 15km from the East Mediterranean coast, in a town called La Canyada, near Valencia, where I was born in May 1968. I am Telecommunications Engineer since February 1994 and an active Radio-Amateur since 1991. I hold the EB5AGV callsign since January 1992. I work phone and some digital modes on HF. I used to work digital satellites, both 1200 baud PSK and 9600 baud FSK, when there were such kind of sats.

Since June 2012, my professional activity is centered around radio communication and I have started my own company, AGVradio


My hobbies

My main activity during the last years has been fixing Amateur Radio equipment. To do that, I also buy and fix test equipment which is, on itself, a nice hobby.
I am also very interested in vacuum tube technology, as the contents of this site will show you.

This is my current shack setup (as of October 2013)

This is the Modern Shack:

Other of my passions are motorcycles and cars.

I currently own a road bike, a '92 Yamaha FJ1200

Another of my favourite toys was (I sold it on December 2012) a '92 CitroŽn XM 2.0 Turbo CT
