I was born in Settember 1965 the 7th, I'm amateur radio since I was 10 but licenced in 1993. My main activities in the radio amateur world are the dxing and the homebrewing; I think the homebrewing without performance compromises is the best for an radio amateur. In fact I've built a lot of transceivers, transverters and station devices I'm using daily in my ham activity without any regretted for a commercial equipment. My best goal has been the DXCC on 50 MHz, my favourite band, with an actual score of 216 country worked on six. I've achieved also the DXCC on 40, 20,15, 17 and 10 meters band and 306 country on HF with only home made transceiver 100W, 6 elements yagi for 50MHz, 4 elements yagi for 28MHz used also on 24MHz backside direction, and a G5RV for all the other bands. SinceDecember 2005 I'm using an homebrew vertical antenna for HF bands;next goal will be the homebrew trx 5BDXCC. During the last years I've experimented the DSP technique based on the G3XJP Picastar project and the KK7P DSPx board, I've built 3 transceivers based on the G3XJP Picastar design with some own design modifications, one of these radios works only on 50 & 70 MHz bands. A latest inprovement has been the implementation of the TrxAVR controller by Ian G3VPX and a colour TFT display (thanks to Glenn VK3PE and all the TfTa project team). Recently I oriented my attention to the listening of the free (pirate) short wave radio station, I also built a general coverage HF receiver You can see un the botton left of the below photo, mostly for this kind of stations. I've found the pirate radio listening as an emotion of early days when I started the radio activity...There is a world behind the pirate radio stations.
I like to discuss with other radio amateurs about my project to improve their performance. I'm a member of the Sixitalia Group (www.sixitalia.org), an Italian club focused to the 50 MHz activity and operational inprovement; I'm qrv also on 70 MHz band...hoping for a stable assignment in Italy in the future.
