The Operator portrayed as a young man: this is my A-class licence.
Stazione
My first setup with the beloved TS-430. I worked more than 180 DXCC Entities in the first year. With 100W and an infamous trapped tri-band dipole, I’ve been able to work on of my best DX contacts ever: ZL7C, long path, 20m SSB. (2003)

A better station, indeed: FT-1000mp (one of the very best ever), ACOM 1010, 2 elements delta loop for 20m. The IC-7400 on the left replaced the TS-430. (2008)

QRP is fun! When made in front of the Scottish coastline is even better: MM0HES/P puttin’ on the air Skye Isl. EU-108 while waiting for the ferry boat to leave the island. (2012)
