I'm new here!

Hi guys!!
Let me introduce myself,
my name is Roberto, I was born in '83. I live in Lecco, in the north of Italy, near Swiss. I got my licence in 2005.
Like all of You I’ve got these two hobbies: mountain and radio!!
I started Sota in the summer of 2015. I worked my first summits with ft857d battery sla 9ah and endfed 40-10mt, after that I’ve changed my setup and now I use kx3 lipo and g5rv1/2.
I hope to hear you on air!


Enjoy yourself and stay safe.
One of the countries in Europe I’ve always wanted to visit, Italy.
Hope to meet you on the band’s sometime.


And many thanks for the Sotas i have chased you on so far :slight_smile:

Hi Roberto! Welcome!

I’ll be in Northern Italy in late August. I may ask you for some advice on summits.


Hi Roberto welcome to SOTA !

Pedro CT1DBS coined a wonderful word the other day - addictivation (= addiction to activation?) Sounds like you’ve got it!

Stay safe and have fun on the hills, hope to work you one day soon :smiley:

Hi Roberto

Welcome aboard!

Be aware of addictivation !

Hope to have S2S with you soon.

Yes Paul, because activate summits is so addictive, with the word “addictivation” I mean “addiction to activation”.
Maybe this isn’t good and plain english but, at least, I have a good excuse: My mother tongue is Portuguese! :slight_smile:
