My name is Simone, and I was born in 1970 in Florence.
I’m on air since I was 15. Started with a small cb radio in the mid of 80’s.
I soon discovered the exciting world of DX, being able to talk to spanish station on legal 40 channels. So I investigate a bit on single side bands, and started making contacts all over the world.
During that years CB radio was very popular, and during following years I started my BCL activity too, QSLing with several Broacasters world wide, and enjoying the art of low signals reception.
I got my first Ham Radio licence only in 1997 but I started real activity in 2006 due to personal issues.
My interests in ham radio covers most aspects, but mainly dxing and antennas.
I’m an IT engineer and I’m involved in different aspect of IT, from software development and analysis to complex infrastructure setup and maintenance, to support and help desk, ITIL compliance process reviews, and even some project management.

I do this for you and for my memories.
A note for US hams…. cb radio in europe cannot be compared to the US one. I know CB means to hams only troubles, problems and QRM; well I can only say it was not the same here in euroland. CB has been a good learning ground for new Hams.
