My US call is KD2AFE.

Thank you to my Elmers: Dan, 7J1ABD / WA6URY and Thierry F4EGG. Also special thanks to Dick 7J1BBC / KD6AZN for getting me started in Digital modes.

I am currently mostly doing PSK31 on 15m and learning to use D-STAR but the compatibility issues between G1 in Japan and the G2 network can make for some interesting challenges. I also use Echolink to contact some stations back home in France.

I now have an Echolink node: JG1XMV-L. You can find it via the aprs.fi website and entering EL-JG1XMV in the call search function. It is running using a raspberry pi and for now is on 24/7. We'll do some maintenance over the summer and then add a D-Star hotspot. The echolink node is located in Echigo Yuzawa (Niigata prefecture) where I do most of my backcountry skiing/snowboarding. It allows people from around the world to contact me on my HT while I am out in the mountains which is quite neat. It also allows my dear XYL (JH1DVF) to contact me via her tablet while I am sweating it out in the mountains which is also nice as it gives her peace of mind and adds another layer to the safety concept.

I am not Japanese, so slowly when you speak Japanese to me please. I'll be happy to do QSOs in french and english but Japanese is my weakest link by far. Makes life interesting as Japanese stations start talking to me in Japanese really fast as soon as they hear my call sign :-).

I have done a few paper QSL card, I use mostly eqsl.cc and some LOTW but will make the effort if somebody requests a QSL card from me. All the QSL cards I receive, I reply to, just be a little bit patient.

My antenna used to be made of bits & pieces of a buddistick+buddipole with a long flexible whip at the end which I was just sticking out the window. I have now finally upgraded to a proper set of antennas. I now use a multi-band D2T which is basically a folded dipole combined with an X-7000 for the higher frequencies. Since getting the D2T my access to Europe has really opened-up. My QTH is really bad as I am buffeted by tall buildings to the North and have tons of electric lines nearby.

My current project is to be able to operate my radio remotely. I am also working on being able to switch all the station components, including the computer, on/off from anywhere.


My current set-up is as follows:

IC-9100, QRV 23cm & Dstar, barefoot.

Antennas : D2T + X7000.

Rotator: Create RC5-3P

Rotator to PC Interface: EA4TX ARS-USB

Software : RS-BA1 / HRD for radio remote control, HDR/DM780 for overall radio control + Digital modes, ARSVCOM for rotator control.

IP Switch: Digital Loggers Web Power Switch 7.


I have a website here: http://www.japanpeuf.com/

I also keep track of topics and articles for myself / friends in this forum: http://japanpeuf.50.forumer.com/index.php

I enjoy the outdoors in general.
