Welcome to my QRZ.com page.


I'm a licensed Ham since 2006.

This is my little shack at home.

Well, I never had time to build a real shack, and I also have to find some nice space for the radios etc ...

So I take from the storage a couple of my radios and I play a bit with them before switching to other ones smiley

When I'm home during my vacations, I like to operate on HF with my beautiful FT-101 ZD perfectly working.

I also have some other old jewels in perfect conditions;

a VHF FT-225 RD, a UHF FT-790 R, and two receivers: the FRG-7700 for the HF and the FRG-9600 for the V-UHF.

I like these charmy Yaesu old radios

My vertical antennas: HF " Diamond CP6 " and the V-UHF " Discone ", both mounted on the balcony.


Unfortunately, I don't have so much space for antennas but everything is working fine and I'm happy with that.


My job is yacht's captain.

I operated the last couple of years mainly from the south / west Turkish coasts with the call TA/IZ5KID, but now I'm transmitting from Italy again

When I'm sailing with the yacht, I use the call IZ5KID/MM.

This is my radio station onboard with the FT-857 D, installed on the window of my cabin

I like digital modes, in particular PSK31 and JT65.

I made some modifications to easily switch and use the yacht's marine band SSB antenna, with the approval of my Boss ;-)

This antenna is a " Comrod " 7 mts long vertical, mounted on the port side of the yacht

For the best performaces I also installed on the feeding line of the antenna a 4:1 Balun with a very short counterpoise.

To tune the antenna I use a small MFJ 16010 and I check the reflected power with the built-in SWR meter of the Yaesu FT857

Everything very simple, but efficient :-)

So, due to my job I'm very often operating form different DXCC.

For this reason,  please send your paper card via bureau or direct to ITALY ( ARI ) only; I'm a member of the ARI section of Viareggio, IQ5VZ.

I'm also member of the ARS section of Viareggio, IQ5HX



On the beginning of 2015, I  started to assemble a QRP RTX from a Kit, the BITX-20

Working an hour on the evening when I have nothing else to do, I think that I will need a little bit more time to complete the project

I completed the assembly of the modules, and now I'm doing the tests including alignements.






Another great hobby of mine: to fly with my microlight !
