QSL image for F6GOX

Dears,

Thanks for the QSO from downtown Paris.
This is a recent picture of my antennas system. (update 2012/10/05)
There are frequent changes according to my bands of interest.


The antenna lenght is 25 meters, with 3 wires 1/4 wave. Two wires are full size 1/4 wave on 80/40m.
The third wire is extended by a 5 wires flat coil to realize a capacitive hat shortened antenna on 160m.

I know this choice is a little bit more losses than to use a good - means heavy - coil (see W8JI articles) as I had used before, but this is more save for the windows of my neighboroughs in case of rupture of the wires... I had been previously lucky and do not want to play again with luck... ;-)
On 160m, Ra = 28 ohms, calculated "ground losses" are 10 ohms and efficiency is 73%.

I use also a butternut verticale antenna HF6V 80-10m and a 7.5 meters verticale antenna for 30m.
I am very happy to be on the air on Low-Bands even from a small lot-roof... wink

* All bands DXCC is yet 317 mixed, 292 CW et 301 Phone.
* On 80 meters, DXCC is yet 194.
* On 160 meters, DXCC is yet 101, WAS is 40 and WAZ is 23.

Church of Saint-Eustache was built of 1532 to 1640. Single in its kind, its plan is that a Gothic cathedral, while its decoration in Renaissance. With its 33.5 m in height, 100 m of length and 43 m broad, Saint-Eustache church, with one of the oldest organ in Europe, is regarded as one of the most beautiful religious monuments of Paris. Do not forget to visit it.

 

This QSL is inspired of the famous 1955 french movie "Si tous les gars du monde" by Christian-Jaque, from a novel writen by Jacques REMY also as a writer. It will thus Andre Valmy and the beginning of Jean-Louis Trintignant actors. The film became a cult movie for the amateur radio particularly by bringing many vocations among adolescents who later become amateur radio. The first qsl with this design was used by F8VU, Philippe Andre, Paris and for the "Foire de Paris" in 1956. F8VU was the first french amateur who listened USSR Spoutnik satellite signal in France.
