I like to work on Low Band on CW, my favorite band is 80 meters, around 3565 Khz for local ragchew, and around 3510 for Dxing.

I have been active for many years on 160 only CW.

I'm active in all the HF bands, but i prefer the Low Band in the late evening and night.

I'm planning to work again soon on 160 with my old station, 2 elements sloper dipole from a 240 feet high tower.

Now in 80 the antenna is a 3 element sloper dipole and 500 W Fet PA HFLA700 made here in N.Italy.

In 40 and 30 meters band the antenna is a Moxon 30 meters up, while in 20/15/10 i use a Mosley 5 elements, up 35 meters.

All my full size sloper dipole are in K3LR - K8UR configuration.

Hope to listen all you soon in Low Band.

For local qso, i use an orizzontal triangular shape NVIS delta loop, SKY WAVE LOOP,  82 meters and high 11 meters, feed with 450 line and

balanced autotuner AT 502 at the base in the backyard.

I love the CW, i have many bug, also some single lever paddle from Piero Begali, the HST and MONO, and some from

Est Europe made in Hungary.


I have also some home made sidesweeper that works very well.


My home made BUG KEY, i call it the LONG RACER, the price is less than 15,00 Euro, cheap key.


I and Piero Begali in his company as we testing new keys, i live very close to Piero.

Piero I2RTF is showing its new key Adventure with my KX1, very useful for portable or SOTA, and it work very well, i like the single lever.

In the shack some old boat anchor, like 75A4, Hallicrafters Cyclone SR 400A, and also some new like Icom 775, 738, Flex 1500.

Here a picture where above the classic 75A4  is a rare HARTLEY TNT transmitter, built by an anonymous OM in the USA and found by an Italian Collector in a junk shop near New York City.

I restored it and now with its original tube made in 1919 work well in 80 meters, the power is about 1,5 W output.

The 5K with a Flex 1500 like panadapter using the IF output at 9 MHZ, i can receive with the 5K or also with the Flex, using all the narrow filter on the Flex down to 25 Hz.

So long life to the CW.....hope to listen you on the band.
