Ham Member Lookups: 19316


Hello to all my radio-friends around the world,

my name is Flavio, I got my first ham license in 1990, as IW7BYO, authorized only for vhf and upper bands. After 2 years I upgraded my license in full class and passed to my new and current callsign: IK7UXU.

I'm an ARI (Italian Amateur Radio Association) member since 1996 and one of the founders of the town ARI Radio Club, whose callsign is: IQ7ML. (Visit  www.arimolfetta.it web site)


My passion for radio started at an early age and I was influenced by my father's love of radio, when he treated me a CB radio on the occasion of my tenth birthday. I remember listening to the fishing crews talking to each other in the Adriatic Sea, truck drivers on the suburban roads and the CB's radios from all over the world and thinking to myself:"one day I will do that!".

CB was a suitable preparation for having moulded my aptitude to the radio communications and to let me to take the plunge becoming part to the world-wide amateur radio community, with my fair share of technical background and good manners "on air".

It's just like me, as best I can, to follow and to abide by ARRL advice: "At all times, transmitter power must be the minimum necessary to carry out the desidered communications". On the air there is a needless RF-power surplus!


I'm active on almost all amateur radio bands, usually on 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters in phone and in various digital modes, chiefly over all winter time. Throughout the summer season my activity is focused on 6m, 2m, 70cm, 23cm and 3cm in phone, digital modes and spending most of warm week-ends on taking part in the largely well-known v-u-shf contests, from my home as well as from some higher slope, extremely rare in my area.

My QTH is a medium town named Molfetta in the south-eastern area of Italy, just looking onto the Adriatic sea and located in Apulia region. Apulia is the region of Italy closest to the East, forming a kind of geographical bridge between western Europe and the Levant. It's characterized by its mainly flat countryside and Mediterranean climate.

My other hobbies are: travelling around the world, computering, scientific essays reading, digital photography and last but not least, fishing.

RADIO EQUIPMENTS: YAESU FT920, ICOM 7400, KENWOOD TS2000X, ICOM 910H for UHF/VHF/SHF, YAESU FT-817ND only for portable operations and in my hand-handled microwave set-up as a driver;

HF Antennas: double inverted-V trap dipoles for 10-15-20-40-80 meters;

VHF-UHF-SHF Antennas: a)Contest activity: 5 elements yagi beam for 6 m,  16 elements long-yagi beam for 2m, 31 elements long-yagi beam for 70cm, 55 elements long-yagi beam for 23cm; b)FM Local activity: collinear antenna 2m/70cm/23cm, 17 elements yagi beam for 2m, 25 elements yagi beam for 70cm, 35 elements yagi beam for 23 cm FM activity; c)other: 60cm prime focus dish for 3cm.

My QSL-Card is 100% sure via the bureau or direct, even though a great deal of time could pass before you get it! If you want the QSL-Card direct you need any return postage (IRC or 1$) inside your envelope. If you like you can send eQSL, but please send paper QSL also, I'll answer both, you can be sure. Reports by shortwave listeners are particularly welcome ( I was a shortwave listener for more years before becoming a Ham, then I care to remember it).

I hope to see you on the band soon, and always good DX !!

Best regards to all my radio friends, who have kept me company over the years. Let's hope we have many more QSO's in the future down the log. God bless you !!!!!

Thank you for looking at my page
