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.
