Yes, that's me at the shack (that photo is somewhat outdated but flattering). Now a few facts about me:

Call sign: my short call belongs to the first set of calls issued in Italy between 1946 and 1969, which are not re-assigned when becoming available (we have no vanity call program here). Presently you can hear just a few italian one-by-two calls on the bands, see http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/twoletter.html.

6- and 4-meter beacons: the I0JX/B beacons operate on 50.004 MHz (round-the-clock) and on 70.088 MHz (round-the-clock in periods when band is authorized), see http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/beacon.html.

QSO confirmations:

  • QSL via Bureau:
    • I0JX: I confirm 100% of my QSOs (easy, fast and cheap thanks to www.globalqsl.com). Your QSL will be appreciated.
    • IS0/I0JX: I answer all received cards.
  • QSL direct: I quitted using postal mail, so please do NOT send me your QSL directly (any direct card would anyway be answered via the bureau, even if accompanied by a SASE, IRCs or GW bills). Not living in a rare country, that should not inconvenience any one too much.
  • Electronic log repositories (e.g. e-QSL, HRD Logbook.net, LoTW, qrz.com Logbook): not used

Note: I encourage every one to indicate, in your qrz.com page, whether you use the bureau or not

Other relevant pages: I1JX   I0JX/B   IS0/I0JX   IW0BRW   K0JX

Station: described at http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/station.html.

Phone calls or SMSs: my cellular phone is always on, dial (+39)-335-384315.

Sardinia operations: I occasionally operate as IS0/I0JX from Porto San Paolo (OT province, WW locator JN40RU), facing the "Kingdom of Tavolara" (read the story on the QSL back or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Tavolara). Mostly CW on the WARC bands.

Personal info: I became interested in electronics in 1961 and graduated in communications engineering in 1972 at the Rome university. Presently I am the development Director of a company dealing with satellite payloads, antenna & digital hardware design and prototyping.

Ham Radio info: you can see my tower with a Yagi antenna at the top of the building where I live. You can also see it on the QRZ.COM GridMap.

I began my ham radio activities in 1964, at 17, with an home-built AM transmitter and a Geloso G. 4/214 receiver, see http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/geloso.

Initially I got the call I1JX which was eventually turned into I0JX when the call-area system was adopted in Italy.

Today, my main interests are equipment building, and collecting & restoring vacuum-tube ham-radio sets.

My favorite band is 50-MHz. At page http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/log6m.txt you can see my 6-meter DX log (241 DXCC countries, 44 US states and 36 CQ Zones as of August 2014). All terrestrial, no pseudo QSOs via EME/JT.

I have always been a country hunter on all bands, and have all DXCC countries confirmed (though I have quitted submitting ARRL cards for credit since many years). I have also participated in many contests, twice getting world top-scorer in the 40-meter ARRL CW contest.

I have been very active on satellites (AO-7 to AO-13) working more than 100 countries and all the US states.

My wife has a VHF-only license with call IW0BRW (now also allowed to operate HF).

I also hold the matching US call K0JX since 1996 (formerly AB6VZ, since 1993).

See you on the bands, 160 meters to 70 centimeters (and some satellite), mostly CW.
