Hello guy ,I am 69 year old and i start with radio some years ago in C.B. Then due to my hard engagement in the job activity i was obliged to stop.I restart in the activity on 2013 after having obtained the licence.At beginning I restart with my old Kenwood Ts-450S without amplifier; now i have buy an ICOM 7400 and  the situation is much more improved. As far as concern the antennas, for the moment i am using: vertical mantova turbo; windom for 40,20 and 10 m and ; morgain for 15/40/80 m self made.Well on september 2015 after having obtained the autorization i have build up a 9 m. pole, with mobile carriage and a three element Cushcraft MA5B for 5 band. The chose has been conditioned by limited ground space. The antenna is managed by Yeasu 650RC rotor.So now i hope to encrease the contact even with tranceiver 100 w power.The comparison with windom and Morgain in their dedicate frequency is good enought; i have signal hearing with difficulty with the dipole,encresing 2/3 S.and the Ros is very low in all bands.Well i have up to date the picture of new set of antenna and shack.73 to all and i hope to have much more chance to extend my contact.

The QSL picure was taken during a regatta in front of Piombino.
