November 2013 until January 14 2014 I was FR/F5PLC.

QRV CW QRP on 30m with KX1 and vertical on fishing-rod,

206 QSO only, but real pleasure with 1,5W !

Congrats and many thanks to all !

QSL via home call.

 

1990 : FD1PLC , beginning with home made 600mW CW QRP on 20m (many thanks Claude F5YC for help) and wire dipôle on the roof.

One month later Chris F6EMA sold me a TS-520, much easy for DX'ing ........ with multi dipoles or Windom.

1992 : DX'ing with  20m 600mW CW QRP and fishing-rod full size 1/4 wave antenna on the car near Agde South France in summer holidays.

55 DXCC in 3 weeks, real pleasure.

1993 : FE1PLC and next F5PLC, trying home brew 11,6m vertical for 40m with 60 radials.

1994 : Old 4 el tribander yagi DX-34 from Western Electronics (many thanks Chris F6EMA) on 12m F6DOK mast (many thanks Fred F6IQU for help).

1998 : IC-746 and TS-850S.

2002 : 78m LW for 30, 40, 80 and 160m.

2004 : Lengthening the mast 12m to 15m.

2005 : Elecraft K2 QRP testing at home QTH, but using for portable in holidays or SOTA, FFF......

2006 : New home brew 20m vertical for 40 and 80m, adding 20 radials 16m to 24m long.

2008 : Very strong wind, the vertical is now inverted L with good results.....

2010 : After long time without RUFZ, training again and new score 30000pts and 335CPM.

2011 : 2 el yagi for 12m and 17m over the 4 el tribander. Again many thanks Chris F6EMA !

2012 : October, sloper for 40m and new home brew 20,5m vertical for 80m + a 10,4m wire in // for 40m.

2013 : October Elecraft KX1 ultra-portable testing at home QTH before using in portable. What a wonderful little rig !

2013 : November, Décember and January 2014 using the KX1 on 30m at 1,5W in vertical on fishing rod from FR island, real pleasure !

2015 : March testing  Elecraft K2 at low power 100mW to 1 or 2W. Best QSO: FK8DD 500mW, FK8CE 1W, 9Q0HQ 1W, FR/F5MNW 1W, D44AC 1W . . . and some EU QSO with 100mW.

 

At home, with TS-850 or IC-746 the power is generally 50 Watts, using 100 W for big pile-up. Sometimes using also KX1 or K2 with very low power 100mW or 8mW.

In holidays or in portable using the little K2 at 0,5 to 5 Watts with 1/4 wave vertical for 10m to 20m or short vertical for 30 and 40m on 6,5m fishing-rod. Using also the KX1 at 1,5 to 3W on 20, 30 or 40m with same antennas.

Using also a 12,5m fiberglass pole for full size 1/4 wave vertical on 30 and 40m.

The 2 antennas with only 1 radial 2m over the ground, or 7 or 20 radials on the ground.

 

333 DXCC CW : 160m 100 - 80m 209 - 40m 282 - 30m 247 - 20m 308 - 17m 241 - 15m 295 - 12m 203 - 10m 250

 

My home QTH is in FFF-078 " Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges ".
