Biography

35 years old, licensed since dec 2009 (TX'ing since sep 2010) after ~20 years of SWL'ing to HF utilities, digimodes and VHF/UHF local nets.
My main hobbies are: HF utilities monitoring, digimodes analysis, HF mobile, linux, tweaking & DIY.
You can find me on the irc channel #wunclub@starchat.net & on the UDXF Yahoo group under the nick "linkz".

My professional road trips during job/daytime are mostly located in the middle east France area, grid locators > JN(1|2|3)(4|5|6|7)
