Born in 1955 , and retired from 2010 , i'm listening to the world radios and ham radio from the 60's , as i was a child .
Having call F1OYP till 1989 , i'm mostly working on V/Uhf , packet & aprs , but also having fun on 6 , 10 , 12 , 15 & 17 meters.
My ham station is made of :
- 1 packet mailbox (LinFBB) under Linux Debian
- BPQ node + FPAC + Xnet
I send every dx spot in unprotos on 433.400 mhz
> tick on the image to connect cluster or bbs !
Take care , i don't use anymore Dyndns services , i moved to NO-IP
WinFBB backup bbs may be found on telnet://f1oyp.no-ip.org:9001 if main server is down.
Alias BBS=Winfbb , OYPBPQ=BPQ-bbs
Last added system : Node ECHOLINK (nr 975335) with an experimental gateway on 145.400 mhz

- > In the mean time , i re-looked my packet/cluster installation , moving from DOS to Windows XP.
- > On May 5th we also put into service an UHF repeater in BERGERAC city with help of friends of F6KHS radio club
