A bit about my QTH....
|Walking round Rimini
...a lot of years ago...
Rimini was founded by the Romans as a colony of Latin Law in 268 B.C. on a preexistent site built between the Ausa and the Marecchia rivers as a little port - centre and road junction. It rose to Municipium and was enrolled in the Aniense tribe in 90 B.C.
In 359 A.D. it was the seat of a council summoned by the Emperor Costanzo II. In the 6th century it took part in the marine Byzantine five-towns alliance before falling into the hands of Longobards. From the 8th century it belonged to Church territory.
In 1157 its municipal autonomy was recognised by Frederick Barbarossa and by the pope. It was Malatesta's dominion from the late 1200's to the 16th century, then it belonged to Cesare Borgia and then to the Venetians. In 1509 the ecclesiastical jurisdiction returned to power until 1860 when it ended by public vote.
This ratified the annexation of the town and of its territory to the Kingdom of Italy.

Often the local radioamateurs give their hight professionality to the local civil defence, as voluntary service, in repeaters and radio stations building and radio operating activity.
Some of their are in the DX world wide Honor Roll and members of contest teams world winners , and recordmen in annual international contests.
The radioamateur that visits Rimini during summer holiday and wishing to try for an "eyes-balls QSO" with a local old-man known "by air" the R0 repeater, located in the Rimini hills, can help him ( if licenced) in spreading his search.
The FM R0 frequency is 144.500-In, 144.600-Out Mhz .
Today many hams from the Titano' republic send their signals on the air; and the
QSO is easy every bands and mode. At present regular activity (WARC enclosed) is
made by T77C Tony ( mostly cw ) and T77M Lino ( mostly rtty ).
