QSL image for F4GVP

My first name is arnaud (on qrg refered to as Arno in short).

I live in the east of France, near Strasbourg, also know as the Europe capital.

I have been licensed recently, but my interest in ham radio goes back a long way. I have no background in electronics , just a pure fascination with radio communication and chasing DX. I have begin in adolescence, like many people with Citizen Band in 80 years, at the apogee of this band. I’m doing SSB and contacting a good part of the world on 11Meters band with a few watts.

Because of life and QTH location (I lived in a apartment compound, placing antennas is rather difficult), I stop this hobbies and I spent 12 years as a short wave listener. With my recently implantation in a small house with a garden, I decided to reconnect with the radio and decided to pass my RA exam.

My former SWL call sign was F1006SWL (Short Wave Amateur Radio Listening (SWARL) & eQSL certificated), so it’s possible that you receive some SWL report from me. If it’s the case, I’m very happy to made QSO now this your station. Also, if you are SWL, listening reports are welcome.

STATION SET UP : My current working conditions are very basic. The transceiver is a Kenwood TS570D and the antenna a vertical dipole, manufactured in UK named I-PRO HOME (40m to 10m). Also for listening several bands, I use a Yaesu VR5000 with a long wire antenna.

 

Picture of the I-Pro Home, no ground system or radials are required, it's a non-resonant type quarter-wave in vertical mode with end capacity loading. The low radiation angle makes the I-Pro Home well suitable for DX traffic.

 

I operate HF bands from 40m to 10 meters, in SSB only.

I am not an avid collector of QSL cards. So are promoting QSL via eQSL or LOTW. That said, if you need a paper QSL, send it and i will answer 100%, preferentially via buro, or direct as a last resort.

Thanks for checking out my call, and please to ear you soon on the Air.

Picture of my son. Succession for the future.
