Welcome to my QRZ.com page
Bitten by DX-bug when I was a teenager, I've got my license at the age of 19 in January 1991.
Starting with an old Yaesu FT101-ZD and a rotatable triband dipole, the first 200 DXCC entities were worked quickly.
After a couple of years the setup was changed with a freestanding 40 feet tower with a Cushcraft A4S on top and a new ICOM 765 in the shack.
After a long period of QRX, I restarted in May, 2009 and the current setup is as follow:
Yaesu FT1000D full filtered
Automatic solid state 600W HAL 600 Atlantic by IW2ANU: http://www.gbhs.it
Optibeam OB9-5 working 10-12-15-17-20 mt at 55 feet
Eantenna 30MDY1 30mt rotatable dipole at 60 feet
Homemade 80m sloper
The activity is focused on DX working all modes CW, SSB and Digital.
From September 2010 I hold a U.S. general class License with vanity call W7RGT.
