Born on : 03/29/1962
I was born on March 29th 1962, I'm an accountant and I'm
employied in a local bank. I'm married and I've 3 childrens.
I live in a big town called ANDRIA, at 55 Km. NW BARI in
southern part of Italy, at about 10 Km. from the Adriatic Sea.
My town is know all around the world for olive-oil and
CASTEL DEL MONTE.
On 1972 my father, present me a "MIDLAND 23Ch." cb
transceiver; my first one, and so I started my "radio
adventure", and the passion caming UP!
With many friends of mine, we study to became HAMs and on 1989
I finally became an OM with the Call IK7NXU.
My first QSO on HF was made with Jose' EA9PY in Ceuta on 15mts.
On 1990 with a friend of mine IK7NXQ, we start our experiences
on packet, as pioneers in our zone.
But my passion was DXing and Contesting, so on March 1990 I
enjoy my first Contest, the "CQ WW WPX SSB" as SOAB Low Power,
very beautyfull experience, with my Kenwood 440 and a
multiband dipole and so on on other contest.
Also in 1990 during the World's Football Championship I had
been authoryzed to sign my callsign as IK7NXU/I90 and
partecipate to the Award: "WORKED FOOTBALL COUNTRIES"
organized by A.R.I.
In 1992 I had win the 2nd Place in "CQ WW WPX SSB CONTEST"
for the SINGLE OPERATOR - ALL BANDS division for ITALY with a
score of 211,888 pts.
In 1993 I had win the 2nd Place - Low Power in "CQ WW WPX SSB
CONTEST" for the SINGLE OPERATOR - ALL BANDS division for
ITALY with a score of 326,186 pts.
At the end of 1993 I purchase the "PacketCLuster" software by
Pavillon and on Jan. 15 1994 start the operation "IK7NXU-6
DXCLUSTER" mixing so the passion with Packet.
