Hi! I'm Fabio, I was born in 1981 and now I'm 33 years old. I obtained the Radioamateur license in 1999 when I was 18 years old with previous callsign IW8EQD but I'm on the Radio since 1994 (for 11 meter band DXing) thanks to my father Luigi (aka Gigi) that given to me this passion. I started the Ham Radio DX activity from June 2007 when I received the new callsign IZ8MBW. I was born and I live in Napoli (Naples in English) in south west coast of Italy. My preferred band is HF and I mostly operate in SSB and Digital Modes (RTTY, PSK, MFSK, etc.).
Member of ARI, EPC #5535, DMC #1924, FH 2153, 30MDG #2794.
My province for the WAIP (Worked All Italian Provinces) Award is NA.
I operate also from my old high school "I.T.I.S. A. Righi e VIII" with IZ8NIR callsign.
I work for an Information Technology company as Systems Administrator. I mostly work on SPARC and Intel Servers running Sun Solaris (Oracle), Linux and Windows; I work also on Cisco and Juniper Router/Switch.
Other hobbies are Music, Film and cars: I loved my Alfa Romeo 147 JTD 16V MultiJet 140 BHP.
Many thanks to my wife Michela and my little 
daughter Martina.
