Hello, I am Sergio IT9IFI, thank you for stopping by.

I’m a 59 years old youngster, electrical engineer graduated in the far 1983, actually in charge with the Italian Electrical National Board, one of the biggest utilities in the World.

I started playing with radios in my teen years, I grew up with bread and grid polarization at the glowing bug times (but sadly old times have gone by …).

I got my “no CW” amateur radio license in 1991 with the former call IW9FH, then in 2003 I upgraded to full license with the actual call.

My RTX’s are a FT920 and a FT450AT for base use, and an IC703 for QRP garden use. At the moment the base antenna is a triband rotary dipole, mounted very low on the roof. For garden operations I have a farm of inverted vees or dipoles for several bands, time by time raised on fishing poles.

Currently I do an extensive use of my “all homebrew station”, made up with a Ten Tec 1320 monoband QRP rig (heavily modified), a small ex CB modified power amplifier, T antenna tuner, audio CW filter, Arduino iambic keyer and some other HB stuff. It lets me put into the dipole the QROOO power of about 25W. Not bad.

Generally I operate the 20 meter band, waiting for next base antenna upgrade when I’ll be able to operate even 40 meters.

My only transmission mode is CW, made both with vertical keys or paddles. I don’t remember where I put the microphones of my brand new radios, someone is used as a doorstop, other as a toy for my dogs. I don’t use pc for my QSO’s, just only my ears and my hands, up to the comfortable speed of about 30 wpm. Sometime I try to speed up but just for very short QSO’s.

I don’t like “599 TU” QSO’s, the same thing for Contests, Awards, pile-ups and so on. I prefer the long chats, I do like to know the man behind that chirpy sound, that’s the reason because my log is really poor, average 2.000 QSO’s per year. I have lot of friends all over Europe, and it’s a great pleasure for me to chat of homebrewing, gardening, cats and dogs second operators, or just Sicilian food and wine when they ask me some information. The greetings at the end of the QSO generally last as the entire QSO, sometimes more …..

Here are my two second operators during their workshift .....

I’m really found of homebrewing, both of radio stuff and measurement test sets. I’m SKCC member (# 16054), and ARMI member (# MI 1106).

I look forward to meeting you on the air. Good luck and 73/55, and thanks for looking up.
