This is video of a QSO with an Italian station using my battery-operated FT-897D (20W) and an indoor wire antenna.
This special event station celebrates the 30th anniversary of the ARI Club of Treviglio.
Treviglio is a town and comune in the province of Bergamo, in Lombardy, northern Italy. It lies 20 km south of the capital city, in the lower territory called "Bassa" marked by the Adda and the Serio rivers.
With approximately 29,000 inhabitants, the comune is now the second most populous town in the province. It is also called "the tractor town" for the presence of the Same Deutz-Fahr headquarters.
Benito Mussolini married Rachele Guidi in Treviglio, in a civil union, on December 17, 1915, after the future duce had recovered in the local hospital. They already had a daughter, Edda.
