Back to Ham Radio !


What a Great Contest !

Licensed in 1968, I've been quite active on VHF-UHF bands during years 1976 to 1986 doing lots of contests from home and portable (see attached photos).

In 1987, I nearly stopped all radio activity to take care of my professional activities (Defense Industry) as well as personal life (with my wife we've had 6 kids).


 My two oldest kids were already helping !



On Nov 1st 2010, I retired and so restarted my hobby with a brand new set of equipments (IC-7600 rig+ FL-7000 Amp). We're now based in a quiet place located South West of France. Thanks to the wide land available over there, I built an 84 m Loop to get an all bands omnidirectional antenna; then a long V (2 x 30m @ 12m high) antenna was raised and oriented toward North America.

With all that done, I was able to get my first 100 countries DXCC awarded in less than a year. But there's still lot of work to achieve before recovering from 23 years of radio inactivity !
