Born in 1942, I have been interested in radio sets, crystal receivers since I was a teenager.
At that time, I decided to learn the Morse code just for the fun.
As a result, I spent my 18 month military service as a radio operator in the Army.
Back home, I decided to take the amateur radio exam, got the license and was issued the callsign F5JU.
I started on the air in 1965, mostly on CW, using a home made rig and wire antennas.
Retired in 2002, I still work CW most of the time, chasing DX. Digimodes at times.
The current station equipment is a Yaesu FT920 and a Kent twin paddle key.
The antennas are a 20/15/10m rotatable dipole and a center fed dipole for the other bands.
My other hobby is fishing for brown trout at the season, using dry fly only.
73, "Jean" F5JU
