Maurice, F5NQL's information:
- Born near Falaise, Normandy 2 months before the landing, in April 1944.
I was interested in radio since I was a young, with the old family BCL, which I listened for hours in the 50's. At this time the BCL covered the 80, 40 and 20m band in AM. So some concerts or other broadcast were sometimes jammed by funny transmissions.
Then I learnt CW in the French Army,when I was 19, and I discovered Ham radio in the seventies.

QSL POLICY :
Since February 2007, I've a new QSL manager, the Provins ARS, F6KOP, my club, http://www.f6kop.com/. .
All my personnal log books are still open since 1988. So are also those for my /p operations from F, ON, PA, LX, DL, OZ, LA, GJ, HB9, French Castles, Mills, Inland islands and IOTA's (1999 EU64 and EU32), and also for the following special own callsigns F89/FB1NQL (1989), FBC5NQL (1998), FB1NQL (1988/1990) , FD1NQL (1990/1993) , F1NQL (May 1993).
I answer to each card received either direct or via bureau. I think I'm QSL 100% effectively .
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT QSL VIA BUREAU:
If you send me QSL cards via Bureau, please do it only via the French REF-Union bureau.
If you use so so bureaus like that of URC or ANRPFD, do it at your own risks. It will be much more than 99% of cases your card will not be delivered to me.
For direct cards, IRC's are always preferred instead of green stamps.
If you are awaiting a card for a long time (3 months direct or one year bureau), send me a request by snail mail , or via my mail-box, with details od the QSO's . I'll send you a new card directly.
