Biography

I was first licensed in 1972 and got my superior in 1973.

Very first rig : Dx-60B and National Nc-88.
Next rig :HW-101.

After a 20 years QRT period, I resumed my ham radio activities in my new apartment where space is limited, but enough room to build dipôles for 40 meters and below.
Most of my contacts are in CW, using a Bencher paddle.
73 from Canada.



Please, eQSL and LoTW only.
Sorry, no more paper QSL, tnx.

Also in the shack, an old SB-100.

EK-1B QRP on 20,17 and 15 meters. 5 watts,
Ranger AR-3500, 10 watts.

« 100 watts and a wire »

All monoband antennas :

- 30M inv. vee
- 20M inv. vee

All my antennas are home built and fine tuned with the antenna analyser Rig Expert AA-54. A great piece of equipment. Never use antenna tuner.

A remote antenna switch allow only one transmission line for 5 monobands to the shack.

Alinco DR-135 MKIII, to a home brew Jpole for 2 meters, to exchange DX information with nearby DXers. Just for the kick of it, the 2 meter rig is powered by a small battery charged by a solar panel.
