Biography

Hi,

Electronics engineer since 1985 during scolarship, I soon after enlisted in the French Air Force. 33 years and few months later I get retired.
So, from 2018 on, I keep spending my time restoring cars because also easy in mechanics, repairing electronics, maintaining our home, sweet home and taking care of our two captivating french bulldogs...

Interested in radio communications for a long time now, I took advantage of my knowledge in electronics and my spare time to train from april to june, 2020 and passed the HAM operator exam (HAREC level) in october, 2020.
Got my callsign the 10th of november, 2020.

Since january, 2021 I enlisted in the "FNRASEC" (Fédération nationale des radioamateurs au service de la protaction civile) through the département subdivision "ADRASEC 40" (Association départementale des radioamateurs au service de la sécurité civile). These are very similar to the US "RACES" or British "RAYNET-UK" groups, in their duties.

Morse learning is in progress : I really want to get over the air that way too or even focus on other areas of interest: QRP, SOTA, digital modes etc.

There is so much to discover in the HAM world!

Thanks to have a look at my page!

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

I own at this moment three rigs :
- Icom IC-7400/ vertical HF home made antenna (in fact, a 25 feet high aluminium strand with an 1/9 impedance transformer sometimes strangely called "magnetic balun", designed to cover from 1,8 MHz to 52 MHz, it works good thanks to the ATU in the rig!) and a modified "COBWEB" 6 bands antenna homemade (thanks to PA9X mods design - wider bandwidth 6m to 20m),
- KENWOOD TS450sat,
- Icom IC-820H/ vertical dual band & 2 yagis dual band (1 vertical position and 1 horizontal position), mounted on a homemade mast with elevation system.

These three rigs are connected to PC via HRD v5.24 software, as well as the azimuth rotator and elevation system, in order to be able to track birds, including the ISS.

I am now thinking about a homemade wire antenna covering all HF bands but at least 80m & 40m, which design? I don't know at the moment but I'm processing a lot and still thinking for the IC-7400 VHF band antenna, probably a J-pole or colinear, in the next future.

DX Code Of Conduct

dx code of conduct small logoI support the "DX Code Of Conduct" to help to work with each other and not each against the others on the bands.
