First interest for radio: 1971 building one radio receiver, without power supply, that scheme is on book for 3rd year of elementary school (my father Louis build, I only "see & learn" because he did not want that I touch a his big soldering iron)
CB at 15 (1976) with one PACE 100, six channel transceiver, and ground plane antenna. My first DX is one CB station in Paris (France) with 5W in amplitude modulation.
Next year (1977) I obtain the SWL authorization (I0-70612). One FRG7 Yaesu receiver open me the world of short wave of amateur radio
Just at 18 (and few days) on 1979, I pass the amateur radio operator exam at the first attempt (First class license consisted in technical exam and CW transmission and reception exam)
In the late of summer 1980 I receive my license (ordinary of 3rd class, the maximum on Italy) then I make my first CQ (during one HF contest).
Now, after 34 years of amateur radio activity, interrupted only for short periods, I'm holder of: (on order of apparence)
