QSL image for IK4TVP

My activity on radio started at the age of 14 when I bought my first CB radio. Later on, at age of 17, i passed the HAM exams, and got my licence (1992)

My first contact was on 10m with ZS8MI that later on the years I discovered it would have been one of the most wanted ever. My initial set-up was a simple Kenwood TS140S and a 4el YAGI for 10m band. I operated in this way for almost 5 years.

Then I changed QTH and went almost QRT for long years, operating time to time as a guest in other HAM stations. Those years (1998-2006) I operated, as guest operator, in a big italian contest stations like IR4M (ex IQ4T) where I learned how to operate in a contest. Two times I was guest operator in CQWW T70A contest station, from S.Marino.

In 2005 I bought my house and start putting on my simple but quite effective station, that was made by a GAP Titan DX (80 to 10m WARC included) and an Eco Antenne Agrimpex 2 element tribander (10-15-20).

My set-up is a Kenwood TS2000, an Ameritron AL-800H amplifier, a remote coax switch Ameritron RCS-4X and a PC-based rig control for digital modes.

In 2013 I have removed my old antennas and I put on air a 2-elements 6-40m Ultrabeam dynamic antenna.

Other antennas on the roof are a Diamond V-2000 50Mhz-VHF-UHF triband, an 80m trapped sloper (tuned on CW portion) and a 40-80-160 home made trapped sloper. A bunch of wire radials are scattered on the roof.

 

I operate SSB, CW, RTTY and the new digital modes JT65 and JT9. I discovered them in my attempt, finally successful, to achieve my ARRL WAS Triple Play Award, in order to put in log some States hardly readable in the old RTTY/PSK.

 

 

I like contesting, mainly CQWW. I partecipate every year since 1998.

 

 

QSL:

QSL is ONLY via LOTW, E-QSL or direct. Don't send to the bureau, I am not ARI member.

 

73s, Andrea
