Ham Member Lookups: 52480


I was born in 1973 and started to listen to ham radio in my early ages. My father had a very old AM radio he had built when he was young; that radio was in a wood case and captured my attention more than the other toys. At age of 10 I received a gift: a small portable transceiver with 3 CB channels, and I started to listen to those voices and to develop its poor antenna, so my play with wires started early.

Being naturally attracted by DX, and not having much room for big antennas, the only way to listen far stations was CW. So I started to listen to CW and to send code with an old military J38, and with this key I sent my first notes on the air in 1993. Waiting for my own call sign I operated under my father's call sign (he has never been active on CW). At that time in Italy it took some 12/15 months from the examination up to get the call sign, but finally in the late 1995 I got it.

I will always remember the morning before I got my call, when I worked ZL7AMO on 40m. The postman arrived a few years later, so I had to wait some 5 years to work again ZL7 on 40 with my own call sign. Since then my daily activity is 99% on CW, but I’m active even on SSB and RTTY but just to work new ones on that modes or in some contest, but it's very hard to hear me in other modes than CW.

I consider myself a radio-lover, since I like almost all ham radio activities: DXing, Contesting, Rag-chewing -- the most important thing is being on the air.
