During the Polesine floodings in 1951
it begins the civil protection activity of the Italian amateur radio operators. Once large
radios in short waves were necessary, while today we can use radios from the dimensions of
a cellular telephone. To difference of the telephone, the communications of the amateur
radio operators are possible also in all those situations that cause the block of the
traditional services of telecommunication, earthquakes and floodings. The most diffuse
cellular telephone always enters on a traditional telephone net via cable, subject to the
breakdowns that flooding can make. An amateur radio net, beyond counting on radio
repeaters in elevated position with battery emergency line, and a great number of amateur
radio operators scattered on the territory. Every Italian prefecture has an A.R.I. radio
room from which the Ministry of the Interior and the Department of the Civil Protection of
Rome are connected employing equipment in short waves (HF). Through the frequencies in
VHF, UHF and the ARI repeaters network is carried out instead
the local connections, in particular for the Friuli Venezia Giulia region the connections
between the four regional prefectures (Trieste, Udine, Pordenone and Gorizia), the COM
(main Combined-operations centers) and eventually the SOR (Regional Operating Room) of
Palmanova. The prefecture of Trieste was be before to decide of a connection packet UHF to
38,400 bps with the Itanet node of Trieste (IR3TS), from which
the Itanet net comes connected all national using the packet links to 1,228,000 bps
between Trieste, Aviano (PN) and Padova. In poor words is possible a direct and immediate
connection with emplacements packet of Rome, Milan, Bologna, the nations of the "Alpe
