I was first licenced in France in 1980 (call was F6GOC). When I moved to the Caribbean in 1991 I got my actual callsign FM5GB but I haven't been active until 2010 when I changed the hobby : I stopped most of my scuba diving activities (I'm still an **CMAS instructor) and came back to Ham radio. I operate mainly phone and digital modes, but my strongest interest is LF and VLF dx-ing. I have a great log filled with Airport beacons and DGPS stations ranging from Northern Canada to Southern Brazil and few Europeans.

QSLing : by eQSLcc or direct (QSL's are printed & now being sent out monthly).

SWL reports welcome.

Sorry no bureau membership !.

Please include Self adressed Envelope and return postage if possible (my local post office does not accept IRC's).

Answering CQ calls is the way I operate most of the time.

73's to everybody, hear u soon or see u on my waterfall !

Another view of the 50 foot-15 meter tower (CTA self supporting, tilt over & crank up made in France)and the solar panel mounted on the roof.

Picture looks to NE (eg to Europe)

 

All gear is Software Defined except the IC 7000 used for VHF.

- Flex 5000A SDR transceiver from Flex Radio USA (sitting under my desk). Heil HM-5 microphone.

- Expert 1K-FA linear amplifier from SPE Italy (fully automatic amp, antenna switch and ATU)

- Perseus direct sampling SDR receiver from Microtelecom Italy (0-30 MHz) : see if my Perseus is on the air and connect to listen : http://microtelecom.it/map/PerseusServers.html. Have fun !

- Excalibur direct sampling SDR receiver from Winradio Radixon Australia (0-30 MHz)

- Icom IC-PCR2500 from Japan (0-3 GHz)

The big black box on top is a linear power supply wich replaces more than 10 little PSunits for all

SDR receivers, and various accessories (the piece is very heavy and huge because home made!)

 

The antenna switching panel.

 

The Flex 5000A, the 1K-FA linear, the Perseus receiver and all digital decoding and logging programs follow the frequency thru DDUtil ( http://k5fr.com/ddutilwiki/index.php?title=Main_Page). Rotator is controlled thru EA4TX interface with a mouse click in HRD rotator.

 

 

Test and service equipment corner (the IC 761 HF transceiver from 1987 in the background was brought back to life recently).
