I'm born in Italy (Savona) in 1976.
My first QSO was with a simple 23 channel AM CB radio founded in my father's 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 the window!
From 1988 to 1998 I worked many country in the 27MHz band (AM and SSB mode) then, in 1998, I obtained the OM licence with the callsign IW1RCT. F1VJT is my callsign since 2004, year when I leave Italy from France.
Actually I work HF from 3.5 to 28 MHz band and 144 MHz, 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 have about 1.5 Watts (@13.8V).

My olds transceivers are modified/upgraded for working better!

I manage two Beacons

The 10 meter beacon:
The 6 meters beacon: (actually OFF)

I manage alsoo:
F1ZHI VHF repeater in JN33EO:
F1ZHR UHF repeater in JN33GE:
F1ZLY UHF repeater in JN23XI:
F1ZQE UHF repeater in JN33JM:
F1ZQF UHF repeater in JN23VK:
F1ZHN transponder in JN23XE: (at soon ON)

I founded my radiocommunication company (VJT Radiocommunication) in avril 2014 and I love my job!!

My hobbyes are photography (beginner) and play electric guitar (rock/blues).
