Bonjour friends, and thanks for the HF QSO! Greetings from beautiful Mauritius!
I am now retired and active on all bands 40-10M, including the WARC bands. My favorite CW hang-out 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.
My primary rigs are an ICOM IC-706mkII, IC-735, and a trusty Kenwood TS-520. I use 100 watts or less, and when propagation allows, I occasionally operate QRP using a Yaesu FT-301. My primary antennas are a HyGain TH-3 Jr triband yagi (with 'armstrong' rotator, hi), a vertical for 7 MHz, and and wires for the WARC bands.
Please join me in congratulating my son Achmed, who is now licensed as 3B8BAE and daily on 28 MHz SSB, around 28.491+ MHz, around 14:00Z. Med is one of several Island locals who received new 3B8 licenses late in 2011. If you hear them, please contact and encourage this new generation of 3B8 hams!
Thanks for reading. Please suggest that others turn their antennas to the southern Indian Ocean and keep a keen ear open for the friendly hams of Mauritius!
There is NO 3B8 QSL Bureau! Websites & old databases listing RW6HS or other managers are 'NOT' correct! K5XK is my ONLY QSL Manager.
QSL all of my 3B6FQ / 3B7FQ / 3B8FQ calls & operations viaK5XK, per instructions below.
- DX stations: QSL with SAE + $2 (USD, preferred) or 1 current IRC.
- W/VE stations - SASE with an optional $1 USD for my color photo card, or an SASE for a basic QSL.
73 et Bons DX, mes amis! - Rachid, 3B6FQ, 3B7FQ, & 3B8FQ
