September 27th, 2014. Back at home from IARU Reg I conference at Varna-Albena (Bulgaria) 20 - 26 september 2014. Thanks for very nice hosting and hospitality from BFRA members and for good organization for this meeting. My pleasure to make " eye ball QSO"with  many bulgarian radioamateurs and others already worked by radio. See you all again on CW.

QSL sent  direct from JAPAN : please don't use Prepaid Enveloppes nor Aérogramme type enveloppes.  Use Normal Air Mail enveloppes for return.TKS.

Don't send Paypal for QSL request !

OQRS . Why I dont accept OQRS ? My QSL service via bureau is FREE of charge (You request my QSL by a simple email (if "not In the log" I send an amail to you). and you receive it without sending your QSL. It is the low cost way to get my QSL). If you want a direct QSL you pay only the return postage, no more. I dont accept the cost of 3, 4, 5 or more $ per each qsl requested by some OQRS users. My QSL service is a non profit service, but only a service based on Ham spirit. That is all.


December 2013, main operator of 3A60ARM : I made 2,501 CW QSO, 40 SSB, 11 Digimode, 75 DXCC, 36 US





(August 2012) If you need my QSL via Bureau send an email and my QSL will be printed and posted through the 3A QSL Bureau wich send twice a year (January and July) QSLs to other QSL bureau worldwide. In this case DON'T send ypur QSL. I dont collect anymore QSL paper (except new one I need and I request direct).



Current QSL direct

QSL Bureau


My station (2008)

Usualy I work Simplex. To avoid confusion , a few hints to make our life easier and our hobby more fun and effortless (i.e. some DX rules according to DX Code of Conduct):

  • Know what "QRX" means! Before asking "?" or" call ?" LISTEN, LISTEN. I send my call after each qso. If your PC cannot read my call, turn Off your PC, learn CW and use ears and hand.
  • I can't heard you when i am transmitting. Wait the end of QSO before calling
  • Avoid dupes (i.e. same hour/QRG/mode ), i repeat your call and mine to confirm at the end of each QSO.So you can correct an error before logging QSO. I update the LOG on line almost every month, check your QSOs.
  • If a specific country or continent is called, don't call if you are not there! For those who have trouble understanding it, DON'T CALL FROM EUROPE IF I CALL JA or NA or USA or ASIA ecc.
  • In fine, you like DX, me too. So let me enjoy DXing.

ABOUT PAPER QSL... some topics

In addition to LoTW and eQSL (AG), I am proud to be 100% QSL. I can send via buureau QSL on request by Mail (not necessary to send your QSL).

When I receive a card from bureau or even direct I will add any QSO's after the date on the same card sent to YOU via bureau or direct, this saves on cards and costs.

100% QSL DIRECT (prefered for fast delivery) or 100% QSL via Bureau. Be carefull before sending QSL via Bureau : QSL bureau need loooooooong time (3 years at least to ... eternity ! For direct QSL pse SAE + 1NEW IRC 2017 model PREFEREor equivalent (foreign 3$ , Europe 2$ or 2€ euro. Sorry, now the rate change US$ to € euro increased to -40% (so IRC prefered). I don't collect green stamps nor IRCs, HI. Pay only the return of your card, no more ! If not, return via bureau.

Pour les stations francaises, PAS de DOLLARS (il est plus facile d'acheter un timbre que recuperer un dollar) je prefere une enveloppe self adressee correctement avec timbre francaisau tarif lettre en vigueur.

For multiple QSL request, add fee postage. Japanese prepaid enveloppes are not accepted by our national Postal service.

Radioactive 1.8 to 50 MHz. Soon on 4 meters. Mainly CW op (see statistics above). When propagation is low, active on digimodes (PSK / RTTY, ROS, JT65 e.g.)

Monaco is only 2km2 city, a very small country. The WORST place for DX'ing ! We have a lot of urban QRN specialy in the evening with domestic apparatus (TV Plasma, PLC, motors engine,ecc, ecc), and by commercial communication equipment (Broadcast TX, digipeaters, U.SHF , radiocoms abord ships, ec, ecc.). Having big antennas is now just a dream.... I left my 12 m up tower and 3 el beam for a vertical ant. Sufficient for DX CW.
