My name is Maurizio.
I live in Genova (Genoa) with my family. Genova is the Italian chief town of Liguria region.
I am 48 and married with Cinzia. We have a son, Mattia.
"Minou" is also a member of our family, hi, hi.
I am a radio transmission “fan” since 1987, when I was a young “CB” and started my activity on the “citizen band”.
One year after only, somebody told me something about other "bands".
From then on, I ever had been a "slave" to this "passion", among my life ups and downs and several years without any activity.
After the first experience as “1CB001”, I became a member of Norwegian “November Foxtrot (NF)” group, no more active now (qrz 1NF058).
The year after I become a “Club Marconi (CM)" group member, down in my city; nowadays I am proud to be a CM member.
My "radio equipment" is:
- Kenwood TS 140 S
- Kenwood TS 450 S
- Kenwood MC 60
- Kenwood MC 85
- Sigma Mantova Turbo (base QTH)
- Sigma 4 elem. (country QTH)
My activity gives me the opportunity to contact 194 different countries, 204 international islands and 17 lighthouses, as confirmed.
I have other interests but my family comes before of all, of course.
I like listening music (particularly Rock of '60 and '70) and playing guitar (classic, folk and electric). I also like singing every kind of music; I was a singer in a polyphonic choir (as tenor), a few years ago.
I play tennis, soccer and swimming, as amateur.
I adore travelling on "pleinair", without any kind of constriction. Infact, I went camping for several years. We owned also a small "camper" and we have visited a lot of our beautiful Italian regions and several European countries.
My website has been created as a joke, in a few months and without useful notions. I did it during a lot of lunch pauses, at work. I captured the base idea from the Gruppo Marconi’s website; the graphic solutions come from several “web” free resources. I know that the final result is quite simple and not professional but I am proud to say that it is self-made, completely.
Thank you for your visiting my website and don't forget to sign my guestbook!! It will be my pleasure to write you back.
