My new shack from February 2009.
My web site: www.ik2chz.it
I was born in april 1959 in a village near my actual QTH. Since the mid of the '70 when I began to take interest in ham radio, I felt that my main goal was DX hunting in HF. I got the Italian licence on april 15th1983 and in 2001 the US Extra class call K2CHZ. In 1991 I married Cristiana (IW2NVI/KC0QXT) who shares with me this great passion, now we live in the centre of Crema, a nice, old and small town 30 Km from Milano, where we work at Linate airport.

On the air in APRS from 1999. From november 2004 (H24 7/7) a weather station transmits datas bothon TCP (IK2CHZ) and radio (IK2CHZ-3). It is an Oregon Scientific WMR-968 wireless connected via RS-232 to a pc running Weather Display wich generate a wx file for UI-View (THE APRS software). UI-View handles 3 dual port TNCs (Kantronics KAM 8 enhanced, Kantronics KPC-4, Kantronics KAM XL) and one single port Raschi 12-96. At the same time runs JAVAPRSServer (server TCP/RF) (call IK2CHZ-11). Everything is linked with TNCs via AGWPE. If you want to try the server is: ik2chz.no-ip.biz:10152 . Frequencies: 144.800 1200 Bd, 432.500 Bd, 144.950 9600 Bd, 14.103 and 10.147 300 Bd.
