NEW QSL POLICY
due to an increasing number of requests, the increased costs of the Italian post service and mylong periods away from my QTH pse follow my kind advices, which make ops easier for me and lt makes you wait shorter for the qsl.
- i prefer BUREAU (expected time of processing 6 months)
-if you needdirect (please fill the OQRS requeston CLUBLOG; i have to ask a contribution of $2 on paypal, wherever in the world)
- all direct qsl(s) sent without noticing on CLUBLOG will be discovered only upon my return at QTH (you may wait for a long time)
Audio records or videos are well accepted, many thanks for your patience during my novice's CW qso
I am Michele -Miki- a 22 y.o Italian student excited by ham radio world. I got my license when I was 18 and I have been on the air since January 2009.
I study Urban planning at Politecnico di Milano, and I am currently working under the supervision of the UN in Geneva. I love ham radio, aerial works with helicopter, trekking and hiking and commercial ships (mainly ferries, tanker and cargo).
Up to now I have run a simple station, I am only a student living in my parent's house which doesn't have much space for antennas… (especially for HF). Low bands are the ones I like most, but a lot of space is required… I love 40m where I spend the most time. in the alps high bands are not easy to be done.Recently I started experimenting a 27m long wire with 9:1 balun i'd use for 1.8 and 3.5 Mhz.

Thank you for over 11000 qso
Up here you can see my "shack"; I work on HF with a Yaesu FT-950. It's a good radio especially considering cost/effectiveness ratio! Occasionally I also use an FT-897D, but mainly for field days and temporary stations. For HF I also have an FT-817 N/D, absolutely "cute" and amazing, which is the first radio I bought. I really love portable activity and the 817 is usually with me. Recently I have bought anFT-847which i will mainly use for local repeaters and some portable on the 4 bands it covers.My HF antennas are hand-made (at least a bit of genuine ham spirit!). As I said I don't have much space, I have half wave dipoles for 40-20-15-10m but I always plan for better system (I'd like a 3 el quad 40-17m).
I live in the mountains and working on VHF UHF bands out of the local area is nearly impossible, nevertheless I can do SSB both with the 897 and 817. FM for repeaters and "rag-chewing" is made with an FT-8800 and an FT-7800.
In 2010 our club decided to experiment digital comms. So I equipped wit an IC-2820. Tests ended soon (we were too few to have good results) so now the 2820 is mobile-mounted in my truck. Antennas for V-UHF are from Diamond: X-510 (to the 897), X-50s (to 817 and 8800) and X-30 (for 7800).
In the past I have also tested 1.2Ghz with Kenwood T-541 and a 12el yagi results have been satisfying but again we were so few and we abandoned any further implementation (radios and antennas will be used for repeater linkage).
SINCE 2013 I STARTED VHF CONTEST ACTIVITY

I am anIFF(italian flora fauna) activator, at first as manager and operator of II1IFF (IFF-245, 193) and now as aFREE LANCE. Here a picture of IZ1POA/P IFF-511. during this activation i've used a Delta loop for 40m and a windom for 20m. in 45 minutes i've made all the 100 qso on the 2 bands, necessary for the accreditation. i made some further experiment and i finished with 250 strations in the log. (special tnx to IZ1PJX for some logistic assistance).
IFF-511 IZ1POA/P, full wave delta loop for 40m!! :)
While I hike I use to carry one of my hand-held, this is one of my main passion. I own a VX-7r and an FT-250, but my favorite are Motorolas!!! I have a GP 380 for VHF (I use it also for my job with helicopters) and a GP 680 for UHF.
I am also active from France as F/IZ1POA, where my family owns a holiday house
In my ham career i have visited other than F also DL and IS0, Sardinia island
Sardinia IS0 operating on 40m with FT-897 and mini dipole, Golfo aranci and Tavolara island (ICV station)
I really love the alpine environment and helicopters, so in summers I work in an Elicopter company, here you are some pics, hope you enjoy

An other passion I have are ships! I am a real enthusiast of marine comms and i frequently visit commercial harbours (up to now i've been in Genoa, Vado Ligure, Porto Torres, Olbia, Tulon Nice, Rotterdam and Hamburg), here some pictures i've done during my trips
I am A.R.M.I -Italian radio ham sailor associated-
ANY QSO WITH /MM IS FOR ME A GREAT PLEASURE
