About me


Thank you for visiting my home page… My name is Salvatore Rapacciuolo, IZ8CLM,   I was born in 1976 in Torre Annunziata, 20 km south  of Naples and this web site is a collection of my feeling regarding the radio, the friends and  ….

My radioamateur experience started in early 80’s while watching my father Gaetano 

talking through  a strange black box... after few years in December 1989 I had my first DX on the CB band with a YL station from Walles

 ( CB pic needed ).

I remember as if it was only  yesterday, the voice, my hand on the mic shakinh and my scholastic  English calling CQ on the air as ROMEO SIERRA ( my name and surname ) looking for someone listening to me HIHIHIHI.

That was my starting point in my professional life, in fact in 2003 I graduated as Telecommunication  Engineer from Naples University “ Federico II “ and It will take me for ever  to  thank my ather Gaetano for his infinite passion for tje electronic world which he transmitted to me !!!!!!!     

Well, about radio, is my life….I'm a bit  Unlucky now because I have no more time like before but when I’m at home  every free minute is spent on frequency ( my girlfriend doesn’t know it HIHIHHI ) calling CQ CQ   IZ8CLM   IZ8CLM  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( two pic. needed:  one in 2002 and another actual ) 

Radio radio and radio…. this is the “motto”, I like to much working in SSB and since few months also in  RTTY that is a very  nice digital mode; I like also contesting ( my previous contest call was IQ8Y now IQ prefix is only for Italian Club Station ) and   managing  qsl cards in fact actually I’m qsl manager for the following stations and activations ( for any question contact me via email  sal ( at ) iz8clm ( dot ) com ):
