No electronic qsling. I send a qsl for  all my qso via Bureau, and gladly answer all direct qsl (no stamps or GS needed)


This is the present set-up (2017). What looks like a 2 ele yagi, over the Steppir 3 ele, is indeed two rotating dipoles, for 40 and 30m. They were previously two 2 ele. yagis but, after a storm, what I could salvage was just enough for two dipoles only. The picture on the right shows the Butternut HF2V, and the view to S/E  over the Adriatic sea.


The CW keys currently in use are a Vibroplex Blue Racer (early 60s) ,  Begali Classic, Czech key. But the situation is not static because I have other paddles (Mercury/N2DAN # 74, two other  Begali and one I1QOD) and straight keys like the J38, the Kent, the Italian VEAM, the Old italian Postal key, and I like to have them rotate on my table. I also have a Palomar Engineer "IC Keyer" (1972) which I mainly use with the other vintage gear: the Drake 2C/2NT plus Heathkit HG10B VFO. 

Lately we moved to our flat in town, so I am often using a Windom antenna on the top of the building.


The picture below is from when I deal with a different kind of waves (often as unpredictable as the radio ones....). Here we are in the Aegean sea



Looking backwards, here follow some images of the long story...


A homebrew 4 ele triband quad, and a 40m 2 ele yagi at right angles, in the 80s and 90s. The shack  is typical of the era: no PC, and paper log!


1969 and early seventies, with an Hallicrafters SX117 and a SB7M, the first SSB TX made in Italy.  On the right side we are in 1962 (the year of my license) and I am operating a friend's station, which we had built together. The RX is a BC348 with several mods, and the large TX had 35 W INPUT with the then ubiquitous 807.


1959: SWL, studying on the ARRL Radio Amateur's Handbook, 1959.
