Biography

Born in Valence city on December 24th, 1971. My first callsign was F4BCU, obtained in 1997, March.
In 1998, August, I got my CW class license : F8BCU

IN THE FIRST PLACE : -> CQ CQ CQ CW :

7021.5 KHz : Every evening on Weekdays (Alfter Job!)...
7030 KHz with 1watt or 300mWatt
14.026 MHz : Regulary

---> No HF Band under 15m when Sporadic E openning !

21.010 MHz : When Band Open
28.010 MHz : When Band Open
50.100 MHz : When Band Open
144.300MHz : Every evening on Weekdays (Alfter Job) -> 18h30 to 19h15 -> QSY 144.310MHz

My speed CW will be your !

SECOND :

I like to try QSO CW HF with 1 watt. It's hard with simple dipole, but sometime I succeed QSO very fine :

DX RECORD CW 1W on 40m : OJ9X : KP10XM = 2138km
DX RECORD CW 1w on 20m : K7BV : DM13BR = 9561km
DX RECORD CW 1w on 17m : VE3DZ : FN03KF = 6411km
DX RECORD CW 1w on 15m : K7BV : DM13BR = 9561km
DX RECORD CW 1w on 10m : LU7YS : FE49IU = 12108km and LU6OA / FG74LU = 10508km

NEW : Since 03/02/2018, I can make of QRP with only 300mW !

LAST DX 300mW / 700mW :
