Born in 06/24/1956, Luigi received his amateur radio license in 1982 at the age of 26 with the call sign IK8BZA. His preferred operating modes are SSB, RTTY and SSTV, with high scores in many contests. He began operating the amateur satellites AO13, AO10 etc with one contact in 1985 with DP0SL Space Shuttle. Being a contester, he participates in: ARI, DXCC, JARTS WW RTTY, CQ WW RTTY, WPX WW RTTY, and others. In 1998 his call sign changed to IV3YER when he changed his QTH. Luigi's dream has been to join a DX-pedition, he is very happy to be selected for the Mellish Reef 2014 team, his first DX-pedition.
