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.

---> CQ CQ CQ CW -> 144.300MHz -> 18h30 to 19h00 -> QSY 144.310MHz

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

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

LAST DX < 1 WATT :

300mW : N3RS on 15m - FN20DC = 6366km
300mW : VA2WA on 20m - FN35GN = 5891km (ARRL CW 17&18 February 2018)
300mW : K1ZZ on 20m - FN31TT = 6027km (ARRL CW 17&18 February 2018)
700mW : K2AX on 20m - FM29NR = 6377km (ARRL CW 17&18 February 2018)
300mW : K1RX on 20m - FN42LX = 5867km (ARRL CW 17&18 February 2018)
