Hello to all friend ! Thanks for watching my QRZ.com page.

This is my Flickr album

My name is Fiodor, I was born in 1996 and I live in the city of Molfetta (about 25 Km nord from Bari) on the adriatic cost of Apulia. I passed the exam in December 2011, and I obtained my callsign in July 2012.

In the photo: fishing fleet in the Molfetta's harbour.

I'm attending the 5 th year of the italian scientific-technological high school.

I take the license in December 2011 and I obtained the callsign IZ7YBG.

I do most of my activity on HF band: 80m ( national and european QSO) , 40-20-17-15-12-10 (DX), I think that I'll mount a small directive antenna for 50 Mhz.. for the moment only SSB mode, but I'm gearing up for digital modes (like PSK31, RTTY, ROS, SSTV).

I'm also active on VHF-UHF FM QSO and Echolink and on VHF SSB/FSK/JT65 and Meteor Scatter. I'm avaiable for any sked on 2 m band, I know that JN81 is a "most wanted" laugh hihi. I want to please all people who need JN81.

Now I'm a member of the A.R.I. (Italian Radio Club) section of Molfetta IQ7ML, but I don't use the bureau, sorry!

I'm the SysOp of our APRS digipeater-Igate IQ7ML-11.

in the free time i like to receive NOAA weather immage and ham radio satellite communications. I like try do to everything (where and when it is possible) in our hobby.

Most of my antennas are homemade, because this is, for me, the fun of the ham-radio. And not least important because I want to save my money when it is possible.


- Main HF-VHF-UHF rig: Yaesu FT-857/D with DTMF mike


- Old all mode UHF qrp (max 1 W!): Yaesu FT-790R ( I use it sometimes with UHF repeater)


- Manual antenna tuner: MFJ-949E (in the photo you can see also the radio-body of the yaesu ft-857/D because I have remoted the display on my desk)


- Power supply: Proxel 32A

- Homemade external s-meter for FT-857

-K3NG Arduino Based control box with PC interface.


- Homemade Windom (without traps) 80-10m, I use it expecially on low-bands (40-80). The pole is about 10 m hight.

- CB vertical Antenna: I tune it on 10-12-15-17-20-30-40 m band

- 4 elements yagi monoband 10m and -17 elements yagi for VHF band (with 20m of RG-213 17/074, I know that it isn't a very good cable, but, at this time, I can't spend much more money for the cable)

I'm building a 10-15-20 m spiderbeam... stay tuned...


- RTX: Yaesu FT-857/D with DTMF mike

- Power Supply: little Proel switching 32A if i can use 220V alimentation.

- Batteries: two 12A 12V lead, one 12V 1.2A.

- 2 little 10W solar panels for recharge lead batteries.

- Main handheld RTX: Baofeng UV-R5

- Manual Antenna Tuner: MFJ -971


- 3 elements homemade light spiderbeam monobander for 10m band

Photo taken in December 2011 during a little scout camp in Gravina in Puglia (Bari, Apulia)

- 10 m fishing rod with 4:1 balun for 40-30-20-17-15-12-10 m band

Photo taken in summer 2011 during a scout camp near Monte Cassino (Frosinone,Lazio)

I usually carry the portable station on my bike.


My other hobbies are:

- Go to sailing and race, when I'm sailing I'm always active in APRS as IZ7YBG-8 (sail boat icon).

Photo taken in May 2012 near Bari (Apulia), moving for a sailing race. Photo taken during a training with Modugno's (BA) Bosch employees.

Me with... Jack Sparrowcheeky:

- I love to move with my bike, alone or with my friends, in good weather Sundays or holidays i like to travel by bike around the Apulia country. I'm always on APRS from my bike station as IZ7YBG-3 or -4 (bike icon) but the digi coverange isn't very good in the internal part of Apulia. I'm not very fast...I have an average of about 20 Km/H in slope as in plain.

Photo taken in September 2012 in Valenzano (BA), you can see my bike APRS-VHF-UHF station (old, until october 2013).

This is my new (from december 2013) APRS-VHF-UHF bike station: the antenna is an homemade J-pole made up by a 300 Ohm old TV flat on . It is designed for the 2 m but it works fine on 70 cm too! On this bike I also used a lot of time the FT-857 with the display remoted on the handlebars.

Photo taken March 2014 near Gioia del Colle.


Photo taken in February 2013 in Matera (MT), you can see me and my "bike friend" Ignazio. We route about 30 Km from the city of Gioia del Colle (BA) to Matera (MT). Enjoy ham radio by bike!


- I was a C.N.G.E.I. scout since 2005 until May 2012 ( 8 years, half of my life!), but for some bad reasons i decided to go off scout activity for some years. But I think: " Scout once, scout forever (in the life, in the work, in everything)". In some scout excursions i did radio activity with my portable set-up.

Photo taken in December 2011 during a little scout camp in Gravina in Puglia (Bari, Apulia). I'm with Ignazio, one of my best scout friend.

Photo taken in September 2011 during a fair in Bari, called: " 74° Fiera del Levante".


Please contact me for all informations.

"And as always... have a nice day!"


73, bye de IZ7YBG Fiodor
