Hi friends,

Cat. 3 amateur since 2009, starting with the 2 year listen-only period.
I Passed my Cat. 2 exam in 2011 and finally got my full license (Cat. 1) in 2012.

I' m active on 160m, 80m, 60m, 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m for DXing and regional activities, on 2m and 70cm bands on local repeaters and direct QSOs.

I enjoy SOTA activity and CW mode for daily QSOs, and sometimes participate in contests.

QSL processing

I prefer paper QSL. I will respond via Bureau or Direct to any received QSL. No money or green stamps required.

My near future projects are:

Increase modulation quality and antenna eficiency
Learn morse code (I' m practising QRS CW everyday)
Build my own CW QRP transmitter
Set up my station to be able to communicate via the QO-100 Satellite

I consider all new experiments as challenges.

I hope to have the pleasure to write your contact in my log.
