Give a look to F5SQM and TM4Q for outside pictures.
Married to F5SQM,Geneviève,we spent many years abroad, working in french embassies.
So, we had different calls as : EI2VCC - FR5FO - BT1BJ - OD/F5SQM (16 000 QSO CW) - 9K2/F6FYA - CT/F6FYA - VE2/F6FYA - W4/F6FYA - GJ-GW-GI-GM-G/F6FYA and guest ops at 7Z1AB (5000 QS0) - BY1BJ (4000 QSO) andON8DX. Now, I stopped to move far away for our daughter'studies. She is 24 years old and works in KOSOVO. We are back to my "family county" and enjoy to be with our parents.
The station is 15 kilometers west of TOURS, central west part of France. 300 km south west of Paris, we are in the "french royal castles land", also known as "Le Jardin de la France". We are very close to VILLANDRY,AZAY LE RIDEAU, LANGEAIS and USSE, and not far from CHAMBORD, CHENONCEAUX, CHEVERNY... So, you are welcome !
