Bonjour Friends, and thanks for the QSO.and greetings from Mauritius!
I am now retired and active on all bands 40-6 Meters, including the WARC bands. My favorite CW QRGs are ".008" on 40/30/20/15/10 Meters, and near the low end of the upper WARC bands. When the bands are boring, you may occasionally find me on SSB phone. I am also available on 50 MHz, on CW & SSB.
I only use 100 watts or less, and when better propagation allows, I sometimes operate QRP using a Yaesu FT-301. My primary rigs are an ICOM IC-706mkII, IC-735, and a trusty Kenwood TS-520. My antennas are a HyGain TH-3 Jr triband yagi (with 'armstrong' rotator, hi), a vertical for 7 MHz, wires for the WARC bands, and a homebrew yagi for 6 Meters.
Please listen for my son 'Med, who is newly licensed as 3B8BAE and often on 28 MHz SSB around 28.491+ MHz, around 14:00Z, or whenever the band is open. We are pleased to welcome and encourage this new generation of 3B8 hams!
Thanks for reading. Please remember to turn turn your antennas to the southern Indian Ocean and keep a keen ear open for our friendly hams of Mauritius!
