He graduated as an electronic technician in high school and he was first licensed in 1989 as IW5CGX (VHF & UP). He upgraded to A Class license and became IK5ZUI six years later.

Michele has operated from a few DX locations and has held the calls: 8Q7IM, IK5ZUI/HI9, FH/IK5ZUI and now 5R8UI. He also operated with IZ8CCW and Mediterraneo DX Club as 5R8M in 2014 DXpedition and during the Mediterraneo DX Club 20th Anniversary in 2017 in Nosy Be, Madagascar.
