I4AWX President Onorario ARS Italy

I think we should all be grateful to’ Hamfest di Firenze 2014 not only for the wonderful organization of an event solely dedicated to amateur radio, ma per l’occasione, that came totally unexpected and spontaneous, I caught this snapshot, which is really a “premiere” in almost one hundred years of the history of Italian ham radio.

No one recalls another occasion when the heads of some of the major Italian associations have been found all together, in the true ham spirit (and with such spontaneous friendship and staff friendliness) to exchange each other's opinions and ideas about the values ​​of Italian ham radio.

Those who know me personally, knows how much I deeply believe in these values ​​and how much I am convinced of the primacy of our amateur radio, also at international level: has been a great joy for me to find the same common feeling in words and also in the enthusiasm of friends Presidents of the ARI, Graziano Sartori, I0SSH, and Cisar, Giuseppe Misuri, IW5CGM.

Thanks Graziano, thanks Joseph, for having the idea and the availability of seize this moment of reflection with me, because this has confirmed to me once again that one is the passion that unites us, are identical and therefore the goals that we all see.

The Italian hams have a wealth of extraordinary people, technical skills and traditions that often are not unfairly exploited because of the many-too ​​many- events within individual associations that constrain and divide people and undermine the initiatives designed for the benefit of all.

It’ task of those who have the greatest responsibility associative see beyond the narrow boundaries that few small people try to draw, to pursue a future of greatness and development common to all radio amateurs Italian.
