Venice, the famousSt. Marco plaza, in a foggy day
Born in 1950, I became interested in electronics in 1965 as SWL. When I was 18 year old, I passed my examination to be a radio operator. In 1969 I received my license as I6MU and I began to operate with may first rig YAESY FT-DX500, from the beginning, mostly in CW.
I became graduated in communications engineering in 1976 at the university of Bologna. My further professional activities was all not related with radio engineering, so my Ham radio activity is my anchor with my early passion.
I am quite sure you are surprised listening to my Italian call sign. Yes I know, such a type of call sign begin to be very rare for Italy. Maybe I will be your only 1-by-2, Italian call sign in your log.
My two-letter call belongs to the first series of post-WW_II calls, which were issued until 1970 and never re-issued since then, This is a real call sign, no vanity call program is available in Italy.
I belong to the category of radio hams that have no space to put good antennas on top of the roof, and so I operate with impossible type and shape of wire antennas.
Beginning last year I found new interest transmitting with QRP level, 5 Watt or less. It is very funny, you do not need big antennas but only to be a good skilled operator.
I gained my ARRL QRP DXCC-AWARD in just 6 month, beginning from scratch.
I am proudly member of I-QRP_Club ( #802 ) and JARL-QRP_Club ( #814 )
I3MU is member of the CTC Croatian Telegraphy Club with personal membership number ( # 1348 )
My next activity will be mostly QRP,(you could find me in the maior contest QRP category), QRP/portable or SOTA activity, climbing mountains.
