Ham Member Lookups: 9287



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 at the end of the sixties.

As a Ham, I was licensed as follow:

- SWL REF 29377 (REF-Union) , then FE2427 - French National Authority, - 1972

- French B Class, novice, FB1NQL, 1988 (not CEPT licence)

- French general 2nd class ( CEPT full licence) FD1NQL, 1990

- French general 1st class ( CEPT full licence) FE1NQL then F1NQL in May 1993 

- F5NQL, ( CEPT full licence & new callsign) in June 1993.

As you can see, between May 1st and june 1st 1993, I was issued three successive callsigns in 30 days

Past own callsigns:

F89/FB1NQL (1989) for the Franch Revolution Bicentenary.

FBC5NQL (1998), for the World Men Soccer Championship (1998), won by France vs Brazil 3-0.

Always in 2016, but May, I was beeing joining the KOP team crew once more and I've done CW also from Molene Island - EU-065.


Since February 2007, I've a new QSL manager, the Provins ARS, F6KOP, my club, http://www.f6kop.com/

The cards for QSO made before, which were managed by Albert, F3GJ (SK 2015), continue anyway to be forwarded to me, if they go via the French Ref-Union bureau and only through this one.

On April 23rd, 2015, I and some guys were in Saint Julien les Villas graveyard, Near Troyes, Aube Area in Champagne, for a last hommage to Albert/F3GJ, died in his 98th year of age, on April 20th, 2015. Rest in Peace Albert. Albert managed my QSL cards for more than 15 years.

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 own and special callsigns F89/FB1NQL (1989), FBC5NQL (1998), FB1NQL (1988/1990) , FD1NQL (1990/1993) , FE1NQL and F1NQL (May 1993).

I answer to each card received either direct or via bureau. I think I'm QSL 100% effectively .


If you send me QSL cards via Bureau, please do it only via the French REF bureau.

Avoid to use so so bureaus like that of URC or ANRPFD; if you do it's at your own risks. It will be much more than 99.9% of cases your card will not be delivered to me. I have not and don't want to have any contact with them. The cards going through these se so so bureaus are not collected. I regret that some foreign Societies continue to send cards for me to them.


For direct cards, IRC's are always preferred instead of green stamps.
The bank fees are very expensive and exchanging 1$ bills has no interest in France, but for countries where IRC's are not longer delivered, US greenstamps are always accepted

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.
