Here you will find information, pictures, island's
history from some of my iia expeditions to the Venice Lagoon Isles
My IIA activity started on 1992 with IL3SP
expediton on "Pellestrina" island (iia VE-033),
orgainzed and supported by ARI Mestre team.
After the great success of that expedition, on
the same year we activated "Le Vignole" island
On 1995 we back to Pellestrina as IL3/IK3QAR.
On 1996 i have operated on several contests (2 times on
the IOTA) from the great qth of Oreste (IK3VIA/N7OV) on
"Lido" island (iia VE-032) as IL3/IK3QAR.
I want to thank Oreste and each one of you for
giving me the chance to work huge pile-ups "from the
On 1998 together with Oreste we have activated 16
different IIA isles of the Venice's lagoon placing second
in the "Activators" category of the Italian Islands Award Trophy
always as IL3/IK3QAR.
On 1999 the "IL3" prefix was deleted (did you worked it
for WPX? ;). Now only /p operations are possible from Venice Isles.
A special thank goes to my YL Roberta who helped
me on the assembly operations of the shack and antenna set
on most of the isles and, of course for her GREAT PATIENCE!
