1 - My son 18.5 yrs : living with his mother, and playing Deep Purple, The Doors, The Beatles....
2 - F4FQI (62 years, SWL at 15, but HAM at 56) :
Now retired, I worked as a Research and Developpement Technician in an Iron Plate maunfacture.
It was a very interesting job !...
3 - My shack is at the first floor (3 m x 3 m) and sunny the afternoon :
* VHF/UHF : Yaesu FT-7800 (100 W in FM) + 1 vertical antenna 1.5 m (for local QSO)
* HF/50MHz :
1 Yaesu FT-950 (100 W in SSB / 25 W in PSK)
1 manual tuner MFJ-941E
1 dynamic micro Yaesu MD-200 (a very efficient one !...)
1 HF/50MHz antenna, home-made : wire square at my window at thr first floor
* 1 speedy PC : Intel Core i3 - 3.68 GHz - 4 Go RAM - System 32 bits => soon on 64 bits (home built)
* 1 Laser printer : SAMSUNG color CLX-6220FX
* 4 softwares : Multi PSK / HRD / Fldigi 3.21.82 / UR5EQF_log3
4 - And if you have 5 minutes, go and visit the web-site of :
my Historic city of BERGUES :
=> The city was the background of the most famous french movie "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis"...
and seen by 16 millons people in France !...
5 - Install the 2 free and super HF propagation prediction sofwares :
* HAM CAP : a little window easy to use and works quickly (usefull in contects, to compare bands conditions)
* voacap.com : developped by the V O A, for the SWL, and works as well as Ham Cap, but slower !
===> But, these two applications work only if you fill the rights parameters in "ITS HF" program
6 - My second hobby, since november 2011, Painting :
first : De Cherico (oil paint), second : famous french Harbour of Collioure (acrylic one)
I also like walking and riding in countryside, and take images of the wild, for painting the best ones !...
