Licensed radio-amateur since 1983, but ten years before -I was13- started playing with CB and homebuilt radios, and self-learning basic of electronics by reading books and magazines. I went to university at 18 and I became a graduated electronic engineer at 24. For me wireless communication is the most exciting application of electronic tecnologies, which has changed (and is still changing) the way we all live. I have great fun, while learning a lot, building my own electronic equipments. And if they are radios, I enjoy to use them on the air. I'm currently not much playing with HF, while I'm very active on 4m, 6m, VHF, UHF and Microwaves, which are my latest interest. With my homebuilt transverters and antennas, I'm operative on 10GHz and 24GHz, always looking for skeds on these challenging bands. My personal ODX record on microwaves was done on 10GHz SSB in summer 2012, with 1234Km QRB, contacting EA6FB team (Ibiza island) from north-east of Sicily. In July 2015 I've surpassed this personal record contacting Luis EA5DOM (1350Km) and just after Maxi EA5CV near Alicante, reaching 1380Km. To the best of my knowledge, this is the second longest tropo contact done from Italy by an italian station on this band.
On 24GHz , I've been the first station to make a contact between Italy and Malta, on 19July 2013, with Mans 9H1GB and his little MW team. About one year later, on 27August 2014, I did the first contact between IS0 (Sardinia) and EA on 10GHz while I was in vacation on the western part of that beautiful island.
