Every year in mid-March, thousands of radio amateurs gather in picturesque Italian town of Montichiari at HAM RADIO organized there. In fact it is a small copy of well known festival in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
But this year there was something new in the program. Piero Begali, I2RTF, well known producer of Morse keys/keyers initiated a HST event. The aim was evident – to attract new radio amateurs to CW and to the sport High Speed Telegraphy (HST). Many hams from different countries took part in the competition.
Age category up to 25 (only two participants – obviously much has to be done to attract youngsters in CW):
1. Gabriele Del Sonno, IU2FQW
2. Enrico Lorenzoni, IU4AZC
Age category 26 - 50:
1. Valery Petrov, R5GA
2. Oliver Tabakovski, Z32TO
3. Dino Maria, IK1LJK
Age category more than 50:
1. Ivan Ivanov, LZ1PJ
2. Helga Ferrante, IN3FHE
3. Panayot Danev, LZ1US
The organizers promised that event to be held every year. Combined with the HAM RADIO, the beauty of Montichiari and Italian hospitality it is worth to be visited.

To follow up on the first successes in the Youth Contest Program of IARU R1 we will announce the new YCP contests of 2016. Youth members from IARU R1 member societies are invited to take part in a contest from so called “Top-Gun” stations. These young HAM’s will learn how to operate the contest station, improve their contest skills and will aim for the best results together as a team.
A youngster will probably be coming for the first time to the host country and will get the chance to experience this country and share amateur radio knowledge with local youngsters.
For more information and the application form visit this link: http://www.ham-yota.com/youth-contesting-program/

An earthquake measuring 6.4 has hit Taiwan, and caused buildings to collapse.
HARTS has received a weak voice signal from the CTARL Taiwan that asks that the following frequencies be kept clear.
HF frequencies used in Taiwan are voice: Main is 7.060 MHz with backup 7.050MHz and 3.560 MHz. Short range frequencies are on VHF and UHF.
At least four buildings have collapsed in the south of the island. Dozens of residents are reported to be trapped in the city of Tainan, those houses nearly two million people.
Tremors were felt in the capital Taipei, on the other side of the island, and aftershocks were felt.
Taiwan lies in the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’ and in 2013, four people were killed in a 6.3-magnitude quake.
