DCI-IM144 - Ridotta di Capo Verde a Sanremo

DCI - Ridotta di Capo Verde a Sanremo

Saturday 3rd February the good weather allowed myself and Giorgio IK1UWL to operate from a new reference valid for DCI: IM144 Ridotta di Capo Arma ora Verde a Sanremo (JN33VT locator).
It is an old building (XVI century) located near Capo Verde Light House and well placed for radio activities.
During the year 1561 pirates often sailed across our sea; particularly Ulugh-Ali spent one month near our coasts continuously plundering; the 28th of June they tried to attack Taggia but without result due to the strong resistance; they move to Castellaro, taking prisoners, and furthermore they reached Pietrabruna and Boscomare; various villages were also destroyed.
They landed in Sanremo but losses were limited as the town reacted with the artillery and push away the danger.
The 13th of July Sanremo's Parliament, taking into consideration the event happened only a few days before, decided to buy further 2 bombards to install on the capes to shoot towards the sea and to oppose in an efficient way to the pirates incursions.
It was understood that with the introduction of new fire-arm having a long shot gave a good result also on the sea.
The "Ridotta di Capo Arma" was one of the building to be used to protect Sanremo.
An activation is the right situation to test new equipments; in the case of IM144 a new vertical antenna, 6 m. long, made with the help of Giorgio IK1UWL, able to work 20 m., 40 m. and 80 m. We will prepare a detailed description during next months.
In 20 m. band I had the opportunity to make QSOs with USA, Canada, Canarie Is, Bielorussia, etc. having signals S9.
In 40 m. band, where I have used the old vertical antenna 5 m. long, I worked in a regular way, with strong signals, from North-West Italy to South of Italy; Imperia Area, too much close to Sanremo to usually get it, has shown strong signals; this was due to the fact of the open area where we have installed the antenna after... having discussed with the owner of the land who was not very much satisfied about our intrusion.
It took about one and half hour to reach the necessary "quorum" to credit the operation.
It has been very much appreciated the visit of Carlo I1OCQ, Martino IW1PNJ, Silvio IW1PEL, that after the QSO in 40 m., decided to make a QSY by car and reach our location.
Furthermore I made QSOs with several OM belonging to our local ARI Group, a particular greetings to them.
We enjoy ourselves during this operation well supported by Giorgio IK1UWL who had the task to coordinate the usage of the two antennas.
I am waiting you to the next "New One" for DCI.
