During this weekend I’ve taken part to the Multi Operator station IQ5FI in the CQ WW RTTY.
IQ5FI is the callsign of the local ARI radio club in Firenze.
I’ve taken part to operations during the Saturday afternoon and mainly later from 20.30 GMT till 01.30 GMT of Sunday 24, and again in the afternoon of the Sunday. Picture has been taken at 01.00 GMT (3 AM local) along to IZ5GUL Luca.
Several other ham radio operators have taken part to the event.IK5GQK IW5EIJ IZ5HQB IZ5GUL IZ5HMK IZ5IMA. Has been funny to work during night hours, on 40 meters band. We operated using the club vertical antenna for 20-15 meters and the dipole for the 40-80 meters. The club station is located in the historic center of Florence, here you can have a look at the Google Map, and you will understand why big aerials are not so easy to setup here. !
