I just moved to my Farm QTH ( August 2011).

Currently I am using a based station with an Icom 7800 and Acom 2000A, but I can also use the Remote Internet Controlled Station with a 2x4 elements SteppIR stack at 100 feet high and 60 feet high with the Icom ProII and OMPower 3500A. Please see my webpage for more informations ( loc: JN55kethis is the location on the map)

I was borned in 1951, I have been involved with Radio since I was 16 years old and I had my first license since then (1967).
I had several call sign I2SPT, IK4DEH, W8/IK4DEH , IK2YCW and BY/IK2YCW.

I am a IR2M Contest Station operator.

I spent 4 years in Michigan (1983-1987), 12 years in Cincinnati, OH (1988-2000) and now I am back in Italy, Mantova.
I am a collector of old radios and an airplanes pilot.

I love to fly ultralights from my farm, please visit : http://www.ik2ycw.it/claudio/ultralights.html
