love writing and, lately, some of my articles have been published by
National and International magazines. Time to time I cooperate
elettronica and even QST.
I am also part of the editorial staff for DXCoffee.com .
Besides of my Ham Radio activities I am an undergraduate student of
Economics and Management at the university of Venice. Feel free to read
and sign my guestbook or e-mail me.
was born in September 1991. Since I was young I was much interested in
Ham Radio and, on February 2008, at 16 years old, I got my Italian ham
radio license and I've been assigned the callsign: IZ3NVR.
I immediately developed an interest on CW that is currently my
favourite mode. Time to time I train with MorseRunner, QRQ and CWFreak
to improve my speed and copying skills. In November 2011 I got my US
General license too with the call: KD2BGM and I hope to upgrade soon
to Extra class.
main interest in the hobby are HF contests and low power communications
as well as homebrewing simple equipment. I am much interested in QRP
contesting where I can run SO2R (Single Operator 2 Radios) without
bothering too much to apply band pass filters to prevent RF issues at
the second receiver. I initially played SO2R in 2010 in IOTA contest
and really loved it. Since that moment I use very often such a
technique to maximize my scores. I achieved some very nice contesting
results, from the fine placements nationally to the world top scores in
some lucky weekend. Each specific event should deserve a
word but I am especially proud of having won CQWW CW 2011 in the M/M
gives lots of satisfaction, especially in the world top contests when
it is easier to work some very rare DXCC entity. I received the QRP
DXCC Award in April 2012 and my count is always growing also thanks to
lots of entries in the QRP categories during contests. I like to say
that I am "Whispering
in the crowd" during
such events :) .
I am deeply involved in QRP and QRPp operations and homebrewing. I run
an online QRSS Grabber on 30m that runs under Linux and the receiver is
a nice direct conversion RX kindly sent me by Tomas, OK4BX and his dad,
