  • Transceivers Icom IC756ProIII and Icom IC7300 (6m to 80m band),
  • Linear amplifier Kenwood TL-922,
  • IC706/AT180 for 2m and 6m traffic,
  • Yaesu FT100 is mainly dedicated to portable operations, wspr beacon and JT modes.
  • Antennas Bazooka, W3HH and HexBeam for decametric bands
  •  HB9CV, vertical and log-periodic for VHF/ UHF. 
  • Rigblaster, SignaLink and  PC for sstv and digitzal modes.

F4GMT HAM's story, a brief overview ....

 

Born in 1952 in Châlons en Champagne, I was early interested in listening various foreign stations on broadcastlistener device during the sixties. It was also the time of free radio stations like Radio Veronica and Radio Caroline. They permit at that time to record the last songs of our favorite R&R group some days before regular station sent these records! Next came maritime and amateur stations ...

I've got my first traffic receiver in 1968. It was an old but efficient BC 342 :-) It's always on a shelf near the shackas you can see below !

 

 

Next came a Sommerkamp FR50 followed by an FRG7. Then the period of the eleven meters band and the associated traffic jam !! Memories of first long distance qso in ssb with little RF power but an efficient 4 elements beam in the garden. Nevertheless, I continue to listen on HAM bands and I remember some "exotic" callsign of this period like FG7XT, PY1BIM, TU2BD, OD5AU, 6W8DY and many others. I don't forget "ritual" qso on 40 m band with the well known Joe F2XK and Gaby F9OV !!

After the "prepa", I've had the chance to study in Telecom Paris but I don't have opportunities to make "real" telco works after and my main professionnal activitie is related to computer and software architecture since 35 years now ! but I was an active SWL during these decades smiley

In 2010, I decide to take another chance and I've got a french second class licence with this easy to remember callsign F4GMT ! My working equipements at this time were :

  • ICOM IC 7400 transceiver with Kenwood powersupply on HF bands
  • ICOM IC 706 transceiver for 6m and 2m bands
  • Yaesu FT100 transceiver for mobile
  • Horizontal dipole aerial W3HH type, homemade Hexbeam antenna, Hexbeam from Folding Antenna for 80m to 6m bands
  • ICR 70, PCR1000, PCR1500, FRG9600 receivers
  • Yaesu FT290R and IC3GE transceivers for VHF (Voice and APRS)
  • Wouxun KGUV2-D transceiver for VHF & UHF as a mobile rig
  • Vertical (5/8), Discone and Logperiodic (Wimo) antenna for VHF and UHF,
  • various collector's devices from WW2 years to Robos SSTV equipment ....

Some views of the 2010'shack are inserted below ... some people are anxious about my mind, some people ask for extraterrestrial communications and think to Mulder (but on my side, I'll be very happy if Alf can help me ..) and YL is very comprehensive wink

One of the ham part in the shack with IC7400 transceiver and some collector's item !

View of the APRS monitoring, a old IC2GE associated with a PK232 and UI View do the job in the QRA !
