First of all: I started with this passion on 11 meter at 10 years of age (1972) I had my first qsl card outside of Italy in 1973 on am mode 27 mhz.
I ENJOY DXING. I have the licence from October 1988. I have been much active on HF until the beginnings of 1996. After 4 years of silence, in 2000 I Started again from a new location. Now I live in the countryside on top of one typical tuscany hills about 200 meters a.s.l., not too far from the sea, near Volterra as better knows “the City of Etruscans” in the Province of PISA, where is the leaning tower and the miracles square.
