If you are reading this because you worked me on the bands, thank you for the QSO
I got interested in radio in my teens and I've been an SWL since I was about 15 years old.
(Thanks to ON4CD to indroduce me in the Ham Radio world).
After I learned CW in the army while serving as a radio operator, I got my licence in 1969.
Born in 1947 and active in ham radio since 1969.
Retired in 2005 (4 decades in sugar beet industry as Process Control specialist).
My main interests in ham radio are :
- mostly CW (95 % of my QSO)
- QRP operation
- contests in CW or Data
- antenna construction and testing
Currently my main equipment is a Yaesu FT5000MP rig, a micro Keyer 2 and a Begali Stradivarius key.
The logger is DXLab or N1MM during contest.
I also own a Yaesu FT857 (nice rig for /M or /P operation) used for home VHF/UHF trafic
and a FT817 for pedestrian QSO and for the QRP Contest

Please don't send me QSL request for this expedition.
The QSL manager for OJ0V is ON4CCP.

I make more than 5000 QSO per year (95 % in CW) and QSL managing becomes too much for me.
Sorry for collectors of paper cards, but I prefer to invest my money and time on radio projects and
make QSO than spending time sending paper QSL and in QSL control.
We are in the era of computers and each QSO is downloaded to EQSL anyway ...
No LOTW (too complicated for me ...)
You can also see on ClubLog, if you made QSO with me
