She left I8TUS, will

I8TUS Salvatore Tucci – Silent key

It’ difficult to write words of farewell or goodbye: always. But, even though I had no great visits with Salvatore Tucci, I8TUS, although I had met him a few times, also in Radio, upon hearing the news of his death, it took a kind of accident with my thoughts to that time. A suspended time during which one tries in the historical archives of our mind to form an image, maybe the best, you remind me.

Salvatore was a good person, Amateur radio a sui generis misunderstood by most, edgy at times excessively. But willing to let permeate the thoughts and to always give you the teachings: theory and technique on the SHF, He was a teacher. I met him recently in a hospital because a mutual friend warned me. Fearing its transformation, Having regard to the disease which had plagued, I prepared respectable potendomi not exempt from a visit necessary and desired.

I was surprised by his usual joke almost to want to calm down because we would have had to stand still… Like he said ..”look what you see is just a figment of your imagination”. But it was debilitated, awesome watch his moves stunted but strong in spirit, Polished in the mind.

A 79 age, he lived in a nursing home here in Cosenza, his city, witnessed and revered as he deserves every person but, unfortunately, on the road of a decline I believe unmerited. His goodness of man, in recent times, He had led him to discard, regalando an inch that the po, her jewels often the result of marvelous car constructions that nothing would have envied to no other.

I greet him ideally no hiding the Magone, the node that makes me sad… that haunts me.

But it is as if I had known and frequented by increasingly, every day for many years.

Rest in peace Sal. Your thinking will accompany for a long time many of us who have loved you.
