Biography

My first radio activity started when I was young, around 12/13 years old.
started with 2 "portable" CB, with 3 quartz channels and 5 W, but portable in those years was an understatement!!
Lifelong computer scientist and lifelong radio enthusiast.
I enjoy building the antennas that I use, but sometimes I also buy commercial ones.

When I'm working in /portable I'm using my Yaesu FT857D, with one 4S LiPO Battery, and one step down DC-DC converter.

in this configuration I can use all the Watt available on my radio, but all the setup is lighting and simple to transport.

I'm using a fishing pole antenna, 10m long, and a 4:1 un-un to couple the 15m RG58 cable to the antenna.

The fishing pole is used with a fishing pole support, in aluminum, where I've connected a little pice of wire to the ground of the SO239.
I'm using also a wired antenna, self made, with a 4:1 un-un, the hot wire 20m long, and the counterweight long about 16m.

Obviously, I'm using the ATU 150 to be sure to have the best tuning for all the bands.

only the 160m is not on my interesting, but all the other bands yes, I like use it, included the magic band.

I'm working also in 2m and 70cm, usually on mobile using the repeaters.

in my car I'm using Yaesu FT 8900R, with a magnetic base where I've mounted a D-original 4 bands antenna (70cm,2m,6m, 10m) with good satisfaction.

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Yaesu FT 8900R for mobile purpose, with a D-Original 4 band antenna
Yaesu FT 857D for home and /P workings
At my home I use a Diamond X50 biband for V/U, and I’m using a vertical dipole self-made for 10m band, but it works fine also in 20 and 40m.
When I go in a field day use, I’ve a fishing pole of 10m and a multi band long wire self-made.
Yaesu FT 530 for portable use.

DX Code Of Conduct

dx code of conduct small logoI support the "DX Code Of Conduct" to help to work with each other and not each against the others on the bands.
