When I was a child my grandfather gave me an old radio as a gift. The long, repetitive tunes I listened to helped me rest during the hot summer nights, when I couldn’t sleep for the heat. From that time on, my favourite pastime has been listening to such tunes. He said to me: « on this radio I heard the radio speaker announcing the proclamation of the Italian Republic! ».

I was fascinated by the melodies on the AM band and short wave (SW) stations, above all because they crackled in a very mysterious way....a mix of sounds and music, you don’t know what they mean and where they come from.

Growing up I found out that not only private and public broadcasting passes through waves and frequency bands, but also pirate and service broadcasts. The last ones, coming from the so-called “utility stations”, transmit coded messages (mostly service alerts between ships and airplanes, states and their embassies, intelligence agencies). They’re often intercepted also by private users, even though they can’t understand them. Middle and, above all, SW broadcasts can bring you a world full of surprises if you pay attention and have the patience to listen to every nuance of sound, even if you don’t have specialized equipment, since ordinary radios also have SW band.

My first real step into radio broadcasting was in 1978. At that time I was laid up because of an accident with my motorbike and my father had the idea to give me a “baracchino” (citizen band radio station) as a gift. In this way I started bit by bit to explore a new world and this made me want to make my voice reach further and further. In times when the Internet was still just somebody’s dream, I was incredibly fascinated by the idea of talking over the air with individuals who, at that same instant, were on the other side of the planet, people of different social background, race or religion.

A few years later I acquired my first serious OM radio station, This radio has allowed me to reach every place on earth, all 5 continents, through fantastic long-distance connections (DX) with other amateur radio stations.

After a few years of QRX (“on stand by”) due to other commitments, I decided to rediscover this invention, once conceived and given to the world by Guglielmo Marconi. This web site is dedicated to my parents, who have always encouraged my radio amateur activity.

Melodie monotone, lunghissime, ma per questo utili a conciliare il sonno nelle notti d’estate, quando la calura non fa riposare. Era il mio passatempo preferito già da quando possedevo solo una vecchia radio regalatami dal nonno in tenera età. Mi disse "con questa ho ascoltato la proclamazione della Repubblica Italiana". L’ascolto della banda Am - e delle onde corte poi mi ha sempre affascinato, perché quel gracchiare ha in se qualcosa di misterioso, suoni, non solo musica, che non sai da dove vengono e cosa significano. Solo successivamente ho saputo che in queste bande operano sì radio pubbliche e private, che riescono ad arrivare da paesi lontani, ma anche pirati e le cosiddette utility, emittenti di servizio che trasmettono comunicazioni spesso intelligibili per le riceventi anche non dotate di particolari dispositivi. Si tratta di comunicazioni fra navi e aerei con stazioni costiere, fra ambasciate e i loro stati, o fra servizi segreti impegnati in attività di controllo. Le onde medie e soprattutto quelle corte sono sicuramente un mondo che riserva molte sorprese se si ha la pazienza di stare ad ascoltare, anche senza avere particolari apparecchi, dal momento che le comuni radio hanno spesso, oltre la banda Fm e Am, anche quella Sw, la ‘short wave’.Il mio primo vero approccio con la trasmissione radio però avvenne nel lontano 1978 quando mio padre mi regalò un “baracchino” (stazione radio CB), dopo che feci il mio primo incidente con l’altra mia grande passione, la moto, che mi obbligò all’immobilità per qualche tempo.Iniziai così a scoprire questo nuovo mondo che man mano che lo esploravo, faceva crescere in me la voglia di far arrivare la mia voce sempre più lontano. L’idea di poter conversare via etere, con un corrispondente che si trovava in quello stesso istante dall’altra parte del pianeta, magari di diversa estrazione sociale, cultura, razza o religione e in un epoca in cui internet era solo nei sogni di qualcuno, mi affascinava incredibilmente. Qualche anno dopo venne la prima vera stazione radio OM. Con questa ho praticamente raggiunto ogni dove del globo, coprendo tutti e 5 i continenti, impegnandomi in fantastici DX (collegamenti a lunga distanza) con moltissime stazioni radioamatoriali. Dopo qualche anno di QRX causato da impegni di varia natura, ho deciso di riscoprire questa fantastica invenzione che il nostro grande Guglielmo Marconi ci ha voluto donare. Questo sito è dedicato ai miei genitori, che favorirono la mia attività radioamatoriale.
