I'm an architect and I own an architecture firm in Turin,Andrea Bella Conceptwhich operate in interior design, design and architecture.

My interests are biking, sailing, ski and of course radio. With few friends, IW1FWU and IK1VKK, we installed 5 vhf repeaters in Valle di Susa ( site of 2006 winter Olympic Games ) linked togheter to cover the valley from Turin up the the top of the mountains. You can reach us by echolink dialing 262414 through the net.

This is the view from the top of my tower. Beaming direction -  Refresh 1 min. GMT
