Born in Jan 1943. Listening Short Waves early , at 6 . Built my 1st valve receiver at 9 . Too young to have patent and licence, as a teen ager I operated as 2nd op by Paolino I1CHN, my Ham Radio Elmer, who also teach me a lot about operating and building. Later I was in Uster ZH by Zellweger AG, and then in foreign countries so no tx licence possible until I get back home in the 70s. But before that I operated some times as a guest operator from many countries and from many Ham Friends stations. Among them I remember Hadj 5A5TH and Maria 5A5TN , when I was in Benghazi for some year in the late 60s. In the early 70s I was back in HB9, where I meet every friday evening Enrico HB9SV and his Friends near Tremona (TI). I later went to Luino Italy and got callsigns IW2AAZ and then I2JJR in 1972. There I and I2SQL and friends founded the Radio Club Grande Stagno; lot of CB members who learned radiotechnics and CW to pass licence tests. Many did it . Packet Radio pioneer in the early 80s, 1st in Italy, with Friends Luigi IW2EIJ and Benni HB9IZ, our PR-Elmer. In the 90s I get back in HB9 . I also went many times to LU CY CE , and in 5R8 as a volunteer to work with a mission help group that we founded. Then as a retired engineer I went to live most of my time in my former holiday home in Abruzzo (I6), but sometime I am back near Varese (I2) or Lugano (HB9) .
