 Beware of a  FAKE station  using MY callsign.

 Check in  ClubLog  (on this web page) for your QSO with me before sending your QSL card.

     My online log (in CubLog) is very regularly updated according to my traffic.


  desertt   I am located in the far West part of the country and live in Geneva city very close to the French border. The Swiss capital is Bern at about 200 kms North-East. The country is made of 26 Cantons (each is a distinct region with its own laws and government). In Switzerland we have 4 official national languages: Swiss-Deutch (very close to German and spoken in abt 70 % of the country), French (in abt 27 %), Italian (in abt 2 %) and Romanche (in abt 1%). The early 2014 population count, reports 8’639’600 inhabitants in Switzerland and you have had just contacted, or heard, one of the 4'735 ham radio licensed (in 2013) of this beautiful mountainous country.

Very young, fascinated at home by voices and sounds from the old radio, I spent quite some time listening to foreign broadcasts. I carried on later for many years with increasing excitement short waves monitoring as SWL. Often in contact with amateur radio friends and with their help, I’ve got my CEPT-1 radio license.

I've done a few jobs , but for more than 10 years I have worked as reporter-photographer mainly based in Asia for one of the biggest international press photo agency. In the early 90's I have then been back to my educational training and worked as technician installing professional radio systems, maintaining communication sites, training radio operators and managing these HF, VHF, UHF and satellite voice and data networks in different countries on several continents. A new assignment in that field made work on rapid response communication systems and deployment in disaster and emergency situations. I've then been in charge to coordinate and implement telecom strategy and preparedness to ensure safety of staff working in countries in or facing critical situations... Then, after having been more involved in radio communication consulting and support I am now back to (digital) photography.

After several long breaks in my  amateur radio activity I am smoothly back, mainly operating CW and time to time working in PHONE. I can also be QRV from 160m to 70cm in nearly all automatic Data modes. I especially enjoy DX’ing with QRP and low power equipment.

My antenna system is limited due to my location. Since July 2013, I am exclusively running (QRP - Low Power) with stealth aerials.

INAC AH-521   Magnetic Loop  (covering 7 to 21 MHz)  controlled with an INAC remote control system.

COMET HA4S  very short vertical HF mobile 4 band whip; 10, 15, 17, and 20 (my 40m coil is not YET installed).

16 meter stealth wire with ATU.

-  VHF and UHF verticals.

I like to confirm contacts with a QSL card exchange because I also find it the final courtesy of a QSO. I’m collecting received cards in albums and each time I open them, it is for me a nice trip back in a recent past, remembering these contacts. Even if the QSO was short, ... our QSL cards last for ever !

I do not e-QSL. Sorry for the inconvenience this might cause to SOME but up to now I do NOT plan yet to QSL electronically.

Regarding my QSL policy, I QSL 100% to all the cards I receive and reply by the same way. I will always answer a card even if no postage or SAE is enclosed because I am from the old school of Amateur Radio where gentlemen are gentlemen and should not have to BUY a QSL.

I 'm QRV on EchoLink: Node # 274630, WIRE II (via local HB9GE Geneva repeater), most of the time QRV and monitoring local HB9GE Geneva DMR repeater, and very occasionally might be active on D-STAR digital voice system,

Beside this radio hobby, I also like several kinds of music, but I'm fond of Rock 'n Roll and love motorbikes. My latest one is an another powerful 1200cc which still make me enjoy a "more and MORE restricted" freedom on roads to feel engine vibrations... I also do have fun in customizing my bike performance ....pale...


Looking for to contacting you soon and, if it is not already done, writing your callsign in my log, best 73.

I especially enjoy CW at night (my local time)RkYwMDAwJTI2Q2FuJTI3dCtzbGVlcCUyMStUaGUrY2xvd25zK3dpbGwrZWF0K21lJTIxKyslMjY2NTIyMzYwMDEyMTY2ODc3MTQ=.gif
