Beginning to get interested in radio in the late '50s and bought his first receiver in 1961 and start the first transmission experiments in the same year in the local area.

After installing a G5RV antenna, build my first single band (80 meters) AM transmitter with a parallel of 6L6 in the summer of the following year, when I’m able to have the first QSOs with Italian OMs.

In the following months I build a new AM transmitter for 20 and 15 meters with a 6CU6 final tube, with which I can obtain a carrier power of 40 W, that allow me, always using the G5RV and then a 3 el. 15 meters monoband, to make QSOs with a large part of the world.

In 1964 I begin to get interested in VHF band and, after building the transmitter tube make, in the same year, the first portable transistor AM transceiver (mixed germanium and silicium semiconductors).

After a break of about 10 years, back in 1975 to be interested radio dedicating especially to the VHF band and then at the DX via Tropo, Meteorsatter and (1982) EME.

In my entire amateur radio activities, all transmitters were built by me and then, from 1975 until today, even the receivers and then also the antennas, even for the most difficult activities such as the EME.

Currently I have two HF transceivers, both in the continuous coverage. one for fixed station named HF2000 and second for portable named HF2001 plus four HF amplifiers, 2 solid state (100W and 250 W) and two with tubes (parallel QE08200 for 400W output and single 4CX1000 for 1500 W output).

HF antennas at moment are 80 meters dipole and 40 meters vertical with 10 meters whip with 2 radiators.

For 6m I have 100 W transverter  plus 3CX800A7 amplifier (1000 W output) and 6 elements 7 meters long antenna.

For 2 meters I have 30W transceiver plus parallel of 8930 tubes (1200 W Output) but no antenna at moment.

Here the partial shack with HF transceiver, smallest HF tube Amplifier, electronic bug, 50 Mhz Amplifier, power meter and so ...

Congratulations, you've made a real DX, you have made QSO with one of the rare stations in the world completely self designed and homebrew !

For direct QSL please not IRCs non-exchangeable at the post office, only 3 $ or 3 € because mail, outside EU, is very expensive in Italy. Thank you.
