I was born on July 10, 1963 in Reggio Calabria, in the city of the Riace Bronzes, of the Fata Morgana and of the bergamots. I am happily married to Thea. I have 3 children, Francesco (IW8ROM), Vincenzo and Kevin. I obtained a High School Diploma of Electro Techniques and I am Specialized in Automation. Since 1992 I have been working at the Reggio Calabria State Police Department. I began my first radio activities in 1979 with CB, then in 1985 my first Call: IW0CXA. Since then, I performed VHF activities in 144Mhz e 432 Mhz winning many prizes. VHF/UHF Manager of the ARI Ciociaria Section where I was responsible for the Field Day Ciociaria, together with Liri DXer’s Team. I have a passion for photography since 1983 using a Canon EOS 50D with powerful optical discs. From November 7, 2002 the callsign IZ8FFA.; My main appoints: the CQWW (all mode), WPX and the ARI Contest. Another hobby of mine is hunting for references of D.C.I. - Italian Castles Award - and when I have time, I am an activator. My QSLs are sent through the ARI bureau, LoTW and I also send via which I believe is an optimal post-contest log verifying system or various activities to control the logs to check for any errors performed while digitating the call, with consequent penalization of the QSO.
