I am keen on islands activations. Please visit my QRZ.com pages with following call signs : JD1BOX, MJ/F4HEC, MU/F4HEC, KH2/F4HEC, KH0/F4HEC, TO5FP.

Hello and thank you for stopping on my page for a while. I was born in 1966 in a farming family for several generations and I am now a cereal producer of a 370 acres property in the neighbourhood of St Maure de Touraine in Indre-et-Loire (dept. 37).

My first souvenirs of radio, back to the years 1975 to 1980, started when I heard strange voices in an old receiver with lamps. Later, in 1984 with the advent of CB, I took my first steps with a small FM TRX  2 watts. With that small rig, I was really surprised to run a QSO with England!! That's when I discovered the term and then DX SSB. I was very active in the band until 1992 and then I totally stopped. By chance I came back to the hobby in 2010. Of course everything had changed with all new technologies and I had a long way learning all these (computer clusters, remote, digital, a.s.o...)

A decisive meeting forced me to think about getting a ham license. Under the friendly pressure of F4EGS Philippe, I reached this milestone with the help of how precious F5MJA Jean-Marie, my trainer at the radio club F5KOK.

Of course, I could not help but get a mobile station in my tractor (Yaesu FT 897 D + mono-band antenna Comet 40, 20, 17, 15, 12 and 10 meters) Everything works perfectly and especially 20 m which was a great surprise to me. About mobile and QRP stations, I would like to draw the attention of expeditions or radio stations most wanted to spare a few minutes from time to time to give QRP their chance for a QSO.  Big guns should inform DX stations about the presence of these stations!

At my home station, I use a Yaesu FT5000MP and a huge OB16-5 OptiBeam antenna 15 meters above the ground on a self-supporting tower. The second is a big tilting krank up tower of 28m, recently installed. On top of that one takes place a 3 el yagi. 30 & 40 m, and  expect also to try soon for a 7 el yagi. for 6 meter band.

Apart from the radio, I have many other hobbies including entomology but I stopped to catch insects for collecting. Now I try to take pictures and they are not always very patient . . .

Cooking is also one of my passion and almost every weekend, I work in my kitchen. Maybe you heard me saying that I have to QRX for monitoring the cooking of a dish HI ! . . . In 2004 I planted 200 truffle oaks and within two years since we might have a chance to deguster our local truffles!
