L'Editoriale di Maggio

ARI Nazionale -

Anche in tempi d'emergenza, l'ARI c'è
di Vincenzo Favata, IT9IZY


Questo editoriale arriverà ai lettori - se teniamo conto delle previsioni meno allarmistiche degli esperti - quando saremo tutti a conoscenza delle decisioni definitive del Governo, circa le limitazioni alle libertà individuali, adottate per combattere la pandemia, nel frattempo, però, nell’ambito associativo sono state scelte, celermente, soluzioni chiare per evitare i prevedibili disagi provocati dalla delicata situazione sanitaria in atto.

La nostra Associazione ha tempestivamente - così come è stato positivamente rilevato anche dalle nostre consorelle estere e pubblicato ufficialmente - fatto fronte all’emergenza coronavirus con la chiusura degli uffici milanesi (ARI ed Ediradio); scelta obbligata ed immediatamente adottata per la miglior tutela della salute dei dipendenti e dei soci che frequentano la sede di Via Scarlatti.

Ovviamente è importante precisare che, in caso di pericolo per la salute, come quello che incombe sulla Regione Lombardia, la limitazione dei diritti dei cittadini e dei soci non è arbitraria e nasce dall’esigenza superiore di salvaguardare il bene della salute individuale e deve essere intesa come necessaria ed ineludibile.

Buon compleanno 425 DX News!

ARI Nazionale -


425 DX News (dal 2005 il Bollettino DX dell'ARI) trae origine da un gruppo di radioamatori del triangolo Milano-Genova-Torino che negli Anni Ottanta del secolo scorso avevano l'abitudine d'incontrarsi sui 145.425 MHz per scambiare informazioni DX. A un certo punto fu chiaro che i 2 metri non erano più adeguati, perché escludevano le persone al di fuori di quella zona. La truppa organizzò quindi un net settimanale d'informazione per i DXer italiani, dapprima in 10 metri e successivamente in 80. All'inizio degli Anni Novanta, mentre il Packet Radio prendeva piede e la rete Packet Cluster diventava sempre più affidabile, nacque il bollettino chiamato 425 DX News in ricordo della frequenza da dove tutto aveva avuto inizio.Fra il Maggio 1991 e il Marzo 1995 il bollettino fu redatto in italiano e spedito sui network BBS e PCL. Con l'avvento di Internet, furono creati il sito web (www.425dxn.org) e la lista di distribuzione [425eng] (che dal 2010 si trova su Google Groups), e 425 DX News abbandonò l'italiano per l'inglese
