The 18th of July 1944, Ancona was seized by the II polish army corps. During the anglo-american occupation, two young boys, the 17 years old Messi Michele and the 21 years old Dino Paoloni, were employed as civil personnel in the allied military transmitting station of Ancona harbour. It was here, during this job, that they first met each other, sharing their passion for telecommunications. Two years later, the two friends decided to establish the Messi & Paoloni company. During the first ten years of their activity, these young boys, selected their purchases at the post-war Photokina exhibition in Cologne, and rushed all around central Italy, selling, installing and servicing film projectors in all the new cinemas being rebuilt after the destruction of the war. In June 1956 they became Fracarro agents for Marche and Umbria, settling back to their first love: Radiofrequency. During this long term cooperation with Fracarro (the major italian TV antenna manufacturer), they decided to establish in 1974 the coaxial cable factory (primarily 75 Ohm). Several years later, the passion for radiofrequency affected the two partners sons, Paolo Paoloni and Stefano Messi. This led to the start of 50 Ohm cables production. In 1985 we started our business relationship with the first german customer : a long lasting and satisfactory 50 Ohm experience together. With the acquisition of 100 % of the shares in 1995, Stefano and Maurizio Messi took up the torch from the “founders”, carrying out passionately complex projects and continuing the legacy of innovation. In 1984, we developed our first satellite cable, model SC/100AG and in 1990 we created the model DIGISAT 5 ELITE, which 31 years ago, with a screening efficiency in A++ CLASS, was already putting together all the best features for a digital cable. After an evolution lasted 31 years, DIGISAT 5 ELITE is by far the best 75 Ohm cable in the world (6.8 mm jacket), performing the best attenuation values for its category (25 dB/100m to 2150 MHz). The continuous improvements in the different production cycles and continuous investments in research and technological innovation, brought the “GAS EXPANDED TL” technology. The new models designed for the HAM RADIO world, (M&P-BROAD-PRO 50C, M&P-ULTRAFLEX 10, M&P-ULTRAFLEX 13/.500”, M&P-ULTRAFLEX 7, M&P-AIRBORNE 5, M&P-AIRBORNE 10), are all made with screening efficiency >105 dB! This leads to an excellent immunity against electromagnetic interferences and low frequency impulsive noises, (responsible for the increasing of the background noise levels). Moreover, having very well screened cables, such as these items, gives the Ham Radio world the chance to dramatically reduce the noise level emissions from the cable itself, minimizing troubles in urban flats and urban areas. Differently, cables such as RG 213/U or RG 8, have 55 dB of screening efficiency, RG 58 C/U has 50 dB of screening efficiency and the extra shielded RG 214 A/U despite its impressive dual screen, can not show off more than 80 dB!
Messi & Paoloni celebrated on March 10th 2016, 70 years in business.
Quality is the philosophy behind the construction of each one of our cables.
