Hello, I wanted to bring to your attention an event that has been taking place since 1965 and is organized by the A.R.I. of Lucca:
The VECCHIACCHI Memorial Contest.
Originally thought to remember Prof. FRANCESCO VECCHIACCHI, the scientist who worked in many fields of telecommunications, later also named Rino I5MMC after he passed away, who for many years was the organizer of the contest.
In a few days the 57th edition will be held at the following times:
432 MHz and Up from 08.00 to 12.00 GMT.
The final rankings are divided by fixed and portable stations.
The complete rules are on http://www.arilucca.it/regolamento.html
The special station II5VMD will be active for the entire duration of the contest.
Every year the participation from Italy is very important so we would be very happy if you want to be active and send us your log.
