I born in Rome in 1968. Married with Annarita, we have tree sons: Nico, Francesco, and Andrea. We live in Tivoli, a city about 27km East of Rome.

   

Ham since 1990. I operate mainly on CW. I love chaising DX. I start my activities with only a Kenwood TS-450S and dipole antenna for 20M. One year later I install a triband PKW Yagi for 10/15/20M in the top of self made 9 meter hight tower installed on the roof of build were I lived togheter with my parents. In 1994 improve my antenna system: I installed a new self made tower 12 meters high and on the top a Hy-Gain TH6DXX, a rotary Dipole for 40M and a SHARK 13 elements for 2 meters. At the same time appeared in my the station the first linear amplifier Henry 1KD-5 (1X3-500z) (tnx to I0BCS).

In 1998 I leave my parent's house for move in Ostia Antica, where staied for three years. We haven't any beam in that house, only a Cushcraft R7. In the 2001 stop any ham activities for 3 long years, and went to live in Tivoli.

In 2004, I started to re buil my ham station in my new house. I installed a motorized telescopic pole 12 m high, with a Hy-Gain tri-band beam TH3MK2, a homebrew trapped dipole for 12/17/30M, and homebrew wire Battle Creek antenna for 40/80/160M (thanks to Marco IK0DWN for donate me the beam, and to Achille IK0HTP for help me to install). I bought a new radio and a new amplifier: Yaesu FT1000MP and Alpha 89. With these new equipment  restarts my ham radio activities.

At the moment my equipments are:

ICOM IC-756PRO3 with microHam MKII interface
ICOM IC-751A line (with SP3, PS15, 2KL)
KENWOOD TS-450S (with SP23, PS430)
ICOM IC-910H
DRAKE 4C line

ETO ALPHA 89 (2x 3CX800 tubes)

Antenna are:

STEPPIR 3 element beam (with 30/40m kit)
80/160m Dipole
Verticals for 2m/70cm

   

Thanks to my good friends Francesco IK0FVC and Luciano I0JBL, I'm one of the CW op at HV's stations (HV0A, HV4NAC, HV50VR, HV6SP) and member of 1A0KM gang.
