Hi I'm GUIDO, thanks for visiting my QRZ.com page.

I live in the central part of Italy in a city called Città Sant’Angelo not so far from the most well-known city Pescara, on the Adriatic coast. It’s a quite good location set between the hills with mountains at about 30 kms faraway and the sea 10 kms distant from my home. It’s a nice place at 320 mt. above the sea level.

I’ve a big passion : RADIO.

I started my activity in 1992 with a little channalized transceiver for the Citizen Band and a 5/8 lambda vertical antenna bought by my father.

In 1998 I took my first license for 50 Mhz and Up (I was IW6PJP), then, in 2001, I finally received my ordinary license for HF bands with my actual callsign IZ6EGX. I like to catch DX stations and expecially contact islands from all around the world.

 

Here you can see some pictures of my old shack ... at the moment I have :

ICOM IC 7400 - YAESU FT 857 (for portable operation) - YAESU FT 817 (for QRP and SOTA operation) - Kenwood TM-G707 (for local 2m & 70cm traffic)

Front view : Other stuffs complete my humble station.

My ESSB audio setup : I start to use it in 2004 with my ICOM 7400, it's composed by :

Micro B1 by Behringer / Parametric Equalizer PEQ 2200 by Behringer / Voice Processor VX 2496 by Behringer / Homemade IBox.

 

I have a lot of hobbies linked with the world of the radio activity; I’m interested about electronic homebrewing, I’ve realized some projects from the PCB making to the circuit construction, but my favourite area is the antenna making.

Here you can see some homemade projects that I have realized in these years ...

My homemade five band V multi dipole for 10/12/15/17/20 meters band, I called it PENTA for the shape and the numbers of bands that cover.

Here some structural detail :

1:1 Balun

My homebrew dual band vertical for 40 & 80 meters band (during setup). It's an HF2V Butternut clone, 10.5 meter lenght.

 

Homemade 6 mt. band vertical antenna, it's a 5/8 Lambda from my first CB Antenna modification.

 Home made dual band portable Yagi for 6m / 2m band - I have elaborate this project using DK7ZB Yagi designs ... I use it for portable activity like SOTA operations

 

Here you can see my homebrew antenna that looks like the "Miracle Antenna" ... I like to call it the "Italian Miracle" ; )

It's an improved version of the original Miracle Antenna, it has a longer whip and a different tuning sistem ... some details :

 

This is my Portable Radio Station (infact I called it PRS) ... It's my setup when I make some field day or contest outside my house ...

With it I can operate HF/VHF/UHF bands ... To power supply the PRS it can be used 220 AC volts from a generator i.e. or 12 DC volts and it switch automatically

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is my VNA Antenna Network Analyzer that I completely realized by myself ... the project is made by my friend IZ1PMX Alfredo, you can find all the infos on http://www.qrpitalia.it ... there are a lot of interesting projects in that website ... This VNA can measure until 250 Mhz and it has a lot of features inside the menu...

Here you can see some results testing my antennas ... Naturally you can interface the VNA with a PC or some Android device via bluetooth ...

Here I'm testing a balun ... below during some calibration in the late night after my ordinary job ...

Another project ... my home made ATV Trasmitter, it works on 2.4 Ghz using a Comtech Module ...

This is my Digital Voice Keyer ... It's very useful just to call CQ DX or for contest ... I bought a digital module and then I interface it with my radio ...

Here you can see another little project that I have realized thanks to my dear friend I1WSM Silvano, the core of this little Microphonic Pre Amp is the IC SSM2166 that includes also a limiter, a compressor and a noise gate that works really well ... Silvano has developed a really complete audio system around this chip ... in this version I simplyfied the original project with the help of Silvano to minimize the components for a portable use ... it works great and it improves your audio emission very well ... I have also realized an SMD version that fit precisely inside the original Yaesu FT817 mike (MH-31 model) ...

Finally I show you my home made CW key ... Foundamentally it's a mechanical exercise because I am not able to use CW yet ...

I hope that one day I can reach this goal in my Ham radio activity experience ...

As you can see to made it I have used an internal part of a PC hard disk and some other screws and bolts that I have found in my garage ... the base is the bottom of an aluminum bottle ... under there's a brass plate that is very heavy ... all the electronic connections are inside ...

 

I like also trekking, motorcycling, cooking and much more.

 

Here with my dear friend Fabio (IZ6EBV) in one of the many escursions on the mountains in the SOTA activity.

 

Another big passion ...

My actual motorcycle Triumph Thruxton 900 model year 2006 (with real carburettors).

 

So, if you need my QSL Card please send me your DIRECT via your postal service to my personal address (contact me if you need it), it will be my pleasure to reply you as soon as possible via the same way.

For any request use my email address to contact me, my answer is 100% garantee.
