Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio, replied:"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

Before start your visit, check if I am in your log and don't forget to confirm our QSO, update your log online frequently as necessary for example LoTw, eQsl, HrdLog.net and last but not least Qrz.com because can be useful for the application of different awards. I have add E-Qsl received section. Thank you so much for sharing the ham spirit, HB9FBP :-)

Spring, Sommer, Autumn time, where spend your holiday time? I reccomend Garda Lake (Italy) to Agriturismo ARMEA, visit their website: http://www.agriturismoarmea.it/

Welcome to HB9FBP info-point
Hallo YL, hallo Old Man,
Thanks so much for your visit here, and i would be thrilled if you reach me ON-AIR !
After several years of hiatus (2003-2011), finally I am once again operating in my renewed station.
Location info: CQ zone 14 - ITU 28 - QRA Locator JN46LA - H26 TI
During my forced stop ON-AIR I received many QSL cards but they have not received a proper answer from me. I apologize for that to all those who await my QSL-Back.
I invite all those who have not yet received my QSL to send their request via e-mail, and i will check on my logbook before I send my reply via bureau or direct if requested (please with SaSe and sufficient mail coverage).
I believe that QSL is a very important part of QSO, today there are many systems to confirm contacts between stations, but my preferred WAS - IS - WILL ALWAYS BE PAPER QSL ! SWL QSL are welcome and answer will be guaranteed.

I'm often 40-30-20-17 meters band and occasionally on 12-15-10, rarely on 6
My preffered mode: CW first !! FT8 using WSJT-X v2.0.0 that cannot communicate with other stn using version WSJT-X 1.9.1 or earlier. Urge to everyone to upgrade no later than January 1, 2019 Because the new protocol become the ww standards.
Please consider that only completed QSO will be logged and confirmed.

About me and Ham Station

My name is Francesco (Cek),
born in Switzerland in 1968, i live in Lugano. My city count about 67'000 inhabitants and is located in the southern part of Switzerland where the official language is Italian. Not too far from my home there is a beautiful lake where it's possible to spend free time. The city is sourrounded by some mountains from which, once reached the top we can enjoy an amazing view.
I work for a rescue and fire organisation since 1990. My first hobby is obviously HamRadio followed by cycling and mushroom research.
