Yes, that's me at the shack (that photo is somewhat outdated but flattering). Now a few facts about me:

QSO confirmations:

  • via italian bureau ( http://www.ari.it ):
    • I0JX: I send a proper card to all members of the QSL bureau (as resulting from qrz.com). Your QSL will be appreciated.
    • IS0/I0JX: I answer all received cards.
  • not directly please: I quitted using postal mail, so please do not send me your QSL directly (any direct card would anyway be answered via the bureau, even if accompanied by IRCs or GW bills). Not being in a rare country, that policy should not cause too much inconvenience for any one.
  • I am not subscribed to any of the electronic log repositories (such as e-QSLHRD Logbook.netLoTWqrz.com Logbook, ...)

Call sign: my short call belongs to the first set of calls issued in Italy between 1946 and 1969, which are not re-assigned when becoming available (we have no vanity call program here). You can presently hear just a few italian one-by-two calls on the bands, see http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/twoletter.html.

6- and 4-meter beacons: until recently I had two I0JX/B CW beacons respectively operating on 50.004 MHz and on 70.088 MHz. With the advent of FT8, those beacons have become almost obsolete. I now operate a dual-mode CW + FT8 beacon on 50.004 MHz, see http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/beacon.html

Other relevant pages: I1JX   I0JX/B   IS0/I0JX   IW0BRW

Station: described at http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/station.html.

Phone calls or SMSs: my cellular phone is always on, dial (+39)-335-384315.

Sardinia operations: I occasionally operate as IS0/I0JX from Porto San Paolo (OT province, WW locator JN40TU), facing the "Kingdom of Tavolara" (read the story on the QSL back or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Tavolara). Mostly CW on the WARC bands.

Personal info: I became interested in electronics in 1961 and graduated in communications engineering in 1972 at the Rome university. Until recently I have been the development Director of a company dealing with satellite payloads, antenna & digital hardware design and prototyping.

Ham Radio info: you can see my tower with a Yagi antenna at the top of the building where I live. You can also see it on the QRZ.COM GridMap.

I began my ham radio activities in 1964, at 17, with an home-built AM transmitter and a Geloso G. 4/214 receiver, see http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/geloso.

Initially I got the call I1JX which was eventually turned into I0JX when the call-area system was adopted in Italy.

Today, my main interests are equipment building, and collecting & restoring vacuum-tube ham-radio sets.

My favorite band is 50-MHz. At page http://www.qsl.net/i0jx/log6m.txt you can see my 6-meter DX log (245 DXCC countries, 44 US states and 36 CQ Zones as of July 2017). All terrestrial, no pseudo QSOs via EME/JT.

I have always been a country hunter on all bands, and have all current DXCC countries confirmed (though I have quitted submitting ARRL cards for credit since many years) plus many deleted ones. I have also participated in many contests, twice getting world top-scorer in the 40-meter ARRL CW contest.

I have been very active on satellites (AO-7 to AO-13) working more than 100 countries and all the US states.

My wife has a VHF-only license with call IW0BRW (now also allowed to operate HF).

In 1993 I passed the FCC Extra Class licence exam and got the call AB6VZ. In 1996 I was assigned the vanity call K0JX which I still have after having temporarily become K4ZVZ for a 2-year period.

See you on the bands, 160 meters to 70 centimeters (and some satellite), mostly CW.
