(This page has been updated on March 11th, 2017)

I was born on October 15th, 1975 in southern Italy, so I'm 41 now. I'm an Aerospace Engineer graduated in Turin Politechnic on October 2000.

I live in Monteiasi, a little town with 5800 inhabitants, 12 Km east of big city of Taranto, Apulia region. I worked in Alitalia (italian airline company) for five years like a maintenance engineer on McDonnel Douglas MD-80 airplanes. Since September 2006 I'm working in Finmeccanica like a quality control engineer in Grottaglie, southern Italy, where we are building the carbon fiber center fuselage of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

I have achieved amateur radio license on December 2010. My rig is now an HF radio transceiver ICOM IC-7410. I had an Elecraft KX3 from January 2014 to February 2016 and a Kenwood TS-930 from December 2010 to December 2013. Initially I used phone calls for my transmissions (LSB/USB) and PSK-31 digital modes, but when I discovered CW Morse Code I simply cutted my microphone cable! Since July 2011 I'm a "CW ONLY" operator.

My son Riccardo (in the picture below) is 8 years old and is learning CW Morse Code.

I have a small website where you can find some works made by me: radio-signals.com 
Good luck my dear Old Men! I wish you all the best!
