Hello there and thank you very much for visiting my profile!

My name is Marco Colombo IU2DXF. 

I run a pub in Busto Arsizio (near Varese, Italy) and my other hobbies are photograpy and music.

I was born in 1979, as far as I can remember I've always had a great passion for the world of radio communications, but I only got licensed in 2015...in the ham radio world my greatest passion is Dxing and radio propagation behaviour.

I live in Arconate, a very small town (approx. 6000 people) about 30 Kms from Milano, in the northwestern part of Italy.


In mid september 2015 I finally installed my first HF station...almost immediately it underwent a series of changes and now my  working conditions are:

- Kenwood TS 590s as the main HF rig

- Yaesu FT-857D for backup, portable operations and Vhf-Uhf at home

- Retevis RT3 UHF for DMR

- Baofeng UV-5R



- SP7IDX 6 bands Hexbeam

- Diamond X-300

- Home made 30 meters full-size dipole 

For logging I use my old but good mid 2009 Macbook pro 13" with RUMlogNG, the best free logbook for Mac OsX.


I have been lucky enough to find wonderful people who helped me a lot in this fantastic journey: Just to name a few:

My Elmer Graziano IW2NOY, who patiently answered all my beginner's questions and guided me through my first steps on the air...

Luigi IZ2BQF and Cristiano IW2NZX who helped me with everthing related to antennas...well...to be honest they did not helped me...they basically did ALL the job with me as useless spectator wink

I wish every novice could find such helping and inspiring people...

Me (left) and my mighty Elmer Graziano IW2NOY who basically taught me everything about ham radio. It may seems that we are only drinking beer but we are currently talking about VERY serious stuff laugh


September 16th 2017. The day my career as a Ham Radio operator ended.



QSL: LOTW is 100% fine, otherwise mail QSL (PSE 2GS and a SAE). PLEASE, NO BUREAU! SWL reports are welcome!

I keep my log updated in real time on Clublog and at least once a week on LOTW.

Happy DX to you folks, see ya in the pileup!

Marco IU2DXF
