5 Band DXCC #8796

Triple Play Award winner #419 - (50 United States confirmed on phone, CW and digital)


  • ​starting from end 2017 

Due to new QTH limitations I recently started using extreme low power communications such as JT65 and FT8.

I have been extremely impressed by the almost new FT8 protocol.

My digital working conditions are:

*** IC-756 PRO III (20W max out power depending on band status)

*** JC-4S automatic remote antenna tuner

*** 100 m wire antenna installed from second floor window, around empty spaces between near by buildings at a maximum 3 meter height, through the trees and available empty spaces (probably one of the longer antennas in Rome downtown... hi!).

*** Ground is composed by a wire connecting the JC-4S to the metallic fence of the building (connected probably to all other fences of the area; therefore pretty performant)


Results: incredible considering above QTH limitations



  • April 2012



Following is a message addressed, first of all, to italian OM.

Carissimi OM italiani, sempre più spesso veniamo tacciati di essere i soliti generatori di QRM (è frustrante vedere che altri OM ci chiamano "maccaroni", "spagetti essen", etc.). Alle volte forse ce lo meritiamo, però cerchiamo di distinguerci un poco.

Di seguito il mio codice etico di comportamento in radio (sperando che anche altri lo adottino):

1 - rispetto per gli altri ::: 2 -durante un pile-up chiamo solo dopo che la stazione DX ha terminato il QSO precedente (anche se la stazione DX utilizza CWskimmer... hi) ::: 3 - durante un pile-up con split largo, evito di chiamare sulla stessa frequenza di un collega locale ::: 4 - non accordo sulla frequenza della stazione DX, nè nello spettro dello split ::: 5 - se mi sbaglio e non faccio split perchè la stazione DX si è dimenticata di ripeterlo chiedo scusa (SRI) e non rispondo nè agli sceriffi, nè ai vari IDIOT (tanto loro non si sono mai sbagliati) ::: 6 - evito di dire IDIOT ad altri ::: 7 - faccio un minimo di ascolto per verificare che la stazione DX non stia chiamando per aree, per numeri o sia coinvolto in un net :::8 - evito di fare il "carretto" per tirare dentro in modo compiacente qualche altro nostro amico, il DX/QSO è bello se sudato e meritato ::: 9 - il fatto che un operatore DX non sia rapido od operi in un modo un po' naif non vuol dire che sia lì per i dollari o che sia un "bad operator"; anche se non è stato il medico ad ordinarglielo, intanto sta lì; rispettiamolo e pazientiamo; alla fine passeremo ::: 10 - se la stazione DX non è una spedizione e sta facendo un normale QSO con qualche altro amico, gli permetto di terminare il QSO, senza sbuffare e pretendere che l'altro dica solo 59 (o 599) e si tolga dalle scatole; un QSO è un QSO e come tale va rispettato.

Ancora una volta, cerchiamo di distinguerci e non farci sempre più prendere in giro.

Diamo una mano ai più giovani per fare capire loro come gira il fumo e ricordiamoci che quando siamo arrivati a 322 entità DXCC, ci sarà sempre qualcun altro a 323 (che gusto c'è a fare i fighetti del proprio condominio?). Divertiamoci ma senza rovinare il divertimento di altri.

Sponsorizza anche tu la AIPBQM...... Associazione Italiana per la Protezione della Banda dei Quaranta Metri...... (non riduciamola come i 2 metri)


...want to forget everyday stress???

in addition to radio try this!!!

That's my little 38 feet "stress helper"


  • HK - Colombia activities (from January 2008, till September 2009)

HK3/IZ0GYP from Bogotà Colombia (started on January 30th, 2008 - ended officially at 17:30Z of September 27th, 2009)

I have been active from the capital of Colombia (Bogota) from 10 to 40 meters (phone, cw, rtty, psk, wspr and jt65).

Starting from January 2009 i have been also active using WSPR from FJ24. Unfortunately due to call digit limit (6 digits) you will decode me and spotted as IZ0GYP; anyhow grid locator will assure correct and proper distance calculation.

Working conditions are FT-897D/I, PO 100W, windom (10 to 40 meters), diamond W-735 (mainly for 30 & 40 meters) and a homemade Ribakov (80 meters).


All QSOs have been uploaded on LOTW. A special QSL (the one shown on QRZ.com) has been already prepared and sent to all stations that made contact with me (via buro).

QSLs are printed and sent via the Global QSL service. QSL are sent to all stations contacted (even to the ones already confirmed via LOTW or direct). I do hope to receive also yours. As some of you already knows i'm replying also to direct QSLs (as far as i'm in Rome for vacation).

All SWL cards will be answered too and are more than welcome.

Achieved awards: LOTW WAS Mixed, CW, 20M, 40M, 40M CW; eQSL WAS.


Best Regards and many thanks to all of you that replied to my calls and my QSLs (bureau, LOTW, eQSL or whateverelse).

HK3/IZ0GYP - Enrico

PS: a special thank to ND, HI and all US OMs that help me to complete my WAS awards (Tnx!!!!)

  • I - Italy activities

I'm 48 and licensed since 1989. Due to my job i'm often travelling around the world. That's why i just recently started real HAM activity.

ARRL member since 2006.

QSL policy... oh... if a hate this issue. I personally do understand people that for some good reason (geographycal remote location, real budget problems, etc.) may request contribution. On the other side i disagree with someone else that, to limit troubles that thousands of QSL will produce in their quiet radio shack simply ask for SASE... (that's too easy dear OMs)...and i do avoid to refer to those that think that this is the easy way to renew their shack.


...but you all should remember the first time that you made a QSO with a "common" country for many but totally new for you. Did you appreciate the QSL? Did you became happy? (i defently think so)...

therefore here is my simple QSL policy:

I WILL call not only CQ DX but also CQ and therefore give to all "rookies" possibility to work one of the hundreds italian HAM stations and one of the tens of Rome's stations.

  • I WILL always QSL 100% first (w/o waiting for your card); SWL are more than welcome !!!
  • I WILL QSL bureau cards via bureau.
  • I WILL QSL direct cards with direct answer; please NO SASE, NO $, NO £ and NO Euros are required.
  • I WILL QSL all contacts via LOTW.
  • I WILL eQSL; i recently joined also eQSL as i saw that many OMs prefere it or are using it in parallel to other ways to send QSLs.

I WILL NOT accept to reduce a hobby to a pure business.
