Today, 24th december 2015 the station was activated and I did some listening from my town Boretto, JN54gv.
Weather was pretty bad, 7°C, some fog and light rain!
However, signals were very, very good, loud and clear. Grimeton CW was almost 40dB out of noise and it was clearly possible to listen the residual carrier while keying-off. In general the propagation on VLW was very good, wuth the 3 russian Alpha rather loud.
Have a look to my little, movie and.. Good Jul!!
Pierluigi Poggi since his childhood has been attracted from technical stuffs and gears, being a very curious guy. He built his first Xtal radio when he was just 9. Today, we would call him “maker”. When he turned to 21 became radio amateur, with call sign iw4blg.
Since then, he developed many radio gears and felt in love with space communication, becoming an EMErs and a satellite enthusiast. His great passion led him to experiment a lot on the higher bands, up to pioneering several THz (lightwaves) QSOs on the early ’90.
Beside to this passion to the radio communication and modern technologies, he like to study, experiment, understand-why, then, write and share, or better, spread the knowledge. This fact led him to became a well renowned contributor of electronics magazines with more than 95 articles published and author of 14 science books.
