I'm born in Italy (Savona) in 1976.
My first QSO was with a simple 23 channel AM CB radio founded in my father cellar in my early age of 12....
I toke the "virus" after my first DX with USA in AM mode, 5 W and a mobile antenna temporarily installed out of my room window!
From 1988 to 1998 I worked many country in the 27MHz band (SSB mode) then, in 1998, I passed the OM licence with the callsign IW1RCT. F1VJT is my callsign since 2004, year when I leave Italy from France.
Actually I work from 80 to 10 meter band in SSB or CW, no digital mode.

I'm learning CW....OM be patient, I'm still QRS!!!

I have assembled many QRP CW transceivers (SWL Rockmite20, Hendricks DC20, Forty 9er and Pixie kits for 40 meter band) and, the last arrived, a µBITx (HF all mode, 10W)
I have added a DDS VFO into my DC-20 and Rockmite transceivers. A PA of 20W have been installed in the DC-20 enclosure (high power is used only when powered by a power supply or big battery); the power is switchable between 20 and 1W for QRP operations.
My Rockmite it have about 1.5 Watts (@13.8V).

I manage two Beacons

The 10 meter beacon:
The 6 meters beacon:
