After a long break from the radio hobby, Paolo has been back on frequency for a couple or years.
Repairing his own radio equipment is part of his passion :
he owns about 20 vintage CB radios.
Among them, a Zodiac M5026, aTokai PW5024, a Galaxy Saturn, some transistorised amplifiers, two SSBTuners, some SDR receivers and a SDR QRP transceiver,a studio microphone with a little mixer.
He has some SDR receivers and one SDR qrp transceiver.
Paolo is an experienced electrical technician who is capable to build a transceiver from scratch and carry out repairs to other radio related equipment.
Searching for parts in various auctions is also part of his enjoyment.
When Paolo is not in his radio shack using a screwdriver or a soldering iron, you will find him in the kitchen cooking a delicious pizza or some other mediterranean dishes =)
He is a keen cyclist and also enjoys jogging.
Meet Paolo on the air !
