Welcome to HB9FBP info-point

Hallo YL, hallo Old Man,
Thanks so much for your visit here, and i would be thrilled if you reach me ON-AIR !
After several years of hiatus (2003-2011), finally I am once again operating in my renewed station. I still operate from JN46LA.
During my forced stop ON-AIR I received many QSL cards but they have not received a proper answer from me. I apologize for that to all those who await my QSL-Back.
I invite all those who have not yet received my QSL to send their request via e-mail, and i will check on my logbook before I send my reply via bureau  or direct if requested (please with SaSe and sufficient mail coverage).
I believe that QSL is a very important part of QSO, today there are many systems to confirm contacts between stations, but my preferred WAS - IS - WILL ALWAYS BE PAPER QSL ! SWL QSL are welcome and answer will be guaranteed.

Visit the entire page to find out more and don't forget QSL is a final courtesy after QSO !        Francesco HB9FBP

Military show in Fort Mondascia DCS TI067, Biasca August 2014

During the 23 and 24 August 2014 it is held in Biasca (TI) at the Fort Mondascia the military show.
The event included the presentation of several tanks and military vehicles, the military museum of the Fort Mondascia, visiting the various bunkers, representations of various companies related to SERVING military. They are also invited some OM that would have took charge of the presentation of military radios and activated to the Swiss Castle Award "reference TI 067"
I had the pleasure of attending together with a team connoisseur of this kind of activations, and CW operation on different bands with the Call HB9IRC / P
The two days were very funny passed along with special friends.

Following a few pictures of our operations.

My partecipation at EAflt Award 2014   (09.09.2014 - 29.09.2014)



I decided to participate in this award by chance, and I have found a great interest. The ultimate goal of contact all 20 EG stations for an unknown number of QSOs in all modes and all  bands has allowed us to maintain active the frequencies throughout the course of the competition and this has been exciting to maintain the own positions and improve their daily result.

My operational plan and achieved goals

My final result

In this award, my first QSO was with EG2EIB and last QSO with EG4ATB, my most wanted Call to complete the EAFLT Team (20 stn) was EG1CEL.
I would like to thank the whole team EGxxxx for the preparation and fairplay in this involving AWARD.
