thank you for visiting my page...

I'm 44 years old, living 2Km from Assisi in a green valley in the center of Italy.

I'm coming back to ham radio on July 2014 after 25 years of QRT! I like DXing in SSB, but I'm challenging myself in a new step: CW. I've recently started with first attempts of QSO in CW and I really want thank all gentle and patience OM for assisting me and for encouraging me. I can't find enought words to explain how much I'm grateful to all of You!

Acom 1010 (born on Jan 2015 at 194 DXCC worked, it's name is "little Tromellin" in memory of FT4TA I was not able to work even if it was S 9/9+ most ot the time), replaced with SPE Expert 1.3K-FA ( simply great, running at MID pwr ).

                              ​       80mt

May 2017 - Aug 2017​ Half Sloper, promising well... broke E31A pileup easily... removed due to heavy RF return

Aug 2015 - now           Ultrabeam 2el 6-40mt (Italy) => unbelivable, my one and only antenna on the roof today!

Mobile ANT (always QRP, see picture below):
