- Ham Biography:
- First licensed on 24 January 1990 with a special license, I got my novice callsign as "IW3QWD".
- After some months, I have been bored to use the 2m band as local qso with my friends, so i decided to get a class A licence.
- Finally on 17 July 1990 i got my class A licence and released as "IV3TMM". Then the "Love" for HF bands starts . !

- A Short Biography:
- I was born in 1968 in Udine (Italy) and moved immediately with my mother to Central Africa (Burundi) where my father worked as an electrical engineer for an Italian company. I grew up there until 12 years and going to a Belgian primary school where I learned French. I was back in Udine-Italy in 1980 to study as an electronic engineer and took my diploma in 1988.
- I started my first job working with telectronic information displays for people in airport halls. I traveled around the world to install displays in several airports during the 1990�s, then changed my job and joined the micro mechanical CNC medical division. At present, my job concerns the production of electric energy.
- In 1990 I became interested in radio equipments, so I decided to get my general class licence as a radio amateur. Since 1990 my primary hobby has been everything concerning the radio world: experimenting antennas, printed circuit boards, first TNC�s and fax, PC�s, software and of course transmitting and receiving equipments. The main interest remains the use of HF frequency on any band and any mode.
- In 1996 I married Ada, a lovely brunette that got me three splendid daughters; Eleonora, Chiara and Anastasia. I�m very happy of my family and enjoy living in this beautiful world !

- Lampedusa Island:
- Lampedusa (Italian: Isola di Lampedusa) is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, part of the Province of Agrigento, in the region of Sicily, Italy; it is the largest of the Pelagie Islands. It is situated 205 kilometres (127 mi) from Sicily and 113 kilometres (70 mi) from Tunisia, and is the southernmost point in Italy.
- Politically and administratively Lampedusa is part of Italy, but geologically it belongs to Africa since the sea between the two is no deeper than 120 metres.
- Lampedusa is the largest part of the comune of Lampedusa and Linosa which also includes the smaller islands of Linosa and Lampione. Its population subsists on fishing, agriculture and tourism. It is known primarily for its role as an entry point to Europe for impoverished illegal immigrants from Africa.
- The island of Lampedusa is connected to Sicily by a ferry service with the seaport of Porto Empedocle, near Agrigento. Lampedusa also has a small national airport which carries out service mainly during the summer period. (Thanks to: source www.Wikipedia.org)

- My friend "Sebastiano - IV3KFB" for vertical antenna technical informations and support.

- So, just want to say how I cannot thank you enough for planning such a wonderful vacation for me and my family. It was an amazing experience, one that I will never forget! Each aspect of the journey was better than the last! The sea tours were great and beachs too as the entire island ! Thank you for your help and patience.

Republika y�u Burundi:
- Burundi, officially the �Republic of Burundi� (Kirundi: Republika y'u Burundi; French: R�publique du Burundi), is a landlocked country in the Great Lakes region of Eastern Africa bordered by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. Its capital is Bujumbura. Although the country is landlocked, much of the southwestern border is adjacent to Lake Tanganyika.
- The Twa, Tutsi, and Hutu peoples have occupied Burundi since the country's formation five centuries ago. Burundi was ruled as a kingdom by the Tutsi for over two hundred years. However, at the beginning of the twentieth century, Germany and Belgium occupied the region, and Burundi and Rwanda became an European colony known as Ruanda-Urundi. Presently, Burundi is governed as a presidential representative democratic republic.

Burundi Ham Story:
- After its defeat in World War I, Germany handed control of a section of the former German East Africa to Belgium. On October 20, 1924, this land, which consisted of modern-day Rwanda and Burundi, became a Belgian League of Nations mandate territory, in practical terms part of the Belgian colonial empire, known as Ruanda-Urundi connected to Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaire).
- After 1945, the �Ham Prefix� allowed to use was OQ5 for Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaire) and OQ0 for Ruanda-Urundi province. This three states was called �Belgian Congo�.
- On 30 June 1960 Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaire) became an independent country and the new ham prefix is 9Q. For the Ruanda-Urundi province, the prefix used was 9U between 01 July 1960 to 30 June 1962 and count as a �Deleted country� for this two years. On 01 July 1962 Ruanda-Urundi became independent from Belgian colony as two new countries, Rwanda with prefix 9X and Burundi with prefix 9U.

Special thanks to:
- My �Family friend�, Mr. RIVA Willy for local logistic support and accomodation.
- The �Ambassador of Italy�, Mr. GHIRINI Guido for local administrative papers assistance.
- My �Childhood friend�, Mr. TARZIA Raymondo that helped me in Bujumbura.
- The �General Manager of A.R.C.T.�, Mr. NTAGAYE R�v�rien that give me the licence.
- My "Friend", Mr. MARCON Raynero for local people liaisons.
- The Col., Mr. NKUNZIMANA Andr� for Air Force Military facilities.

But a very special �Big Thanks� go to my father Claudio that helped me in logistical antennas and radio equipments and to my family, especially to my wife �Ada� that encouraged me in this trip for a �Childhood Memories DXpedition� and supporting me to enjoy my hobby.
