Hand and ears for real QSO.

No computer for RX or TX CW, only with transceiver and key.

Using computer only for logging QSO.


1990 : FD1PLC , home made 600mW CW QRP on 20m (many thanks Claude F5YC for help) and wire dipôle over the roof.

Chris F6EMA sold me a TS-520, much easy for DX'ing ........ with multi dipoles or Windom.

1992 : DX'ing with  20m 600mW CW QRP and fishing-rod full size 1/4 wave antenna on the car near Agde South France in summer holidays.

55 DXCC in 3 weeks, real pleasure.

1993 : FE1PLC and next F5PLC, trying home brew 11,6m vertical for 40m with 60 radials.

1994 : Old 4 el tribander yagi DX-34 from Western Electronics (many thanks Chris F6EMA) on 12m F6DOK mast (many thanks Fred F6IQU for help).

1998 : IC-746 and TS-850S.

2002 : 78m LW for 30, 40, 80 and 160m.

2004 : Lengthening the mast 12m to 15m.

2005 : Elecraft K2 QRP testing at home QTH, but using for portable, holidays or SOTA, FFF......

2006 : New home brew 20m vertical for 40 and 80m, adding 20 radials 16m to 24m long.

2008 : Very strong wind, the vertical is now inverted L . . . . . but good results.....

2010 : After long time without RUFZ, training again and new score 30000pts and 335CPM.

2011 : 2 el yagi for 12m and 17m over the 4 el tribander. Again many thanks Chris F6EMA !

2012 : October, sloper for 40m and new home brew 20,5m vertical for 80m + a 10,4m wire in // for 40m.

2013 : October Elecraft KX1 ultra-portable testing at home QTH before using in portable. What a wonderful little rig !

2013 : November2013 until January 2014 using the KX1 on 30m at 1,5W in vertical on fishing rod from FR island, real pleasure !

2015 : March testing  Elecraft K2 at low power 100mW to 1 or 2W. Best QSO: FK8DD 500mW, FK8CE 1W, 9Q0HQ 1W, FR/F5MNW 1W, D44AC 1W . . . and some EU QSO with 100mW.  

April until June 2015, was FR/F5PLC, some QSO with KX1 and same antenna.  QSL via home call.

2016 :  September and October using again the KX1 on 20m at 3,5W with same antenna from FR island , but the condx was down . . . only 75 QSO.

2017 :  From 25 june to 13 August was again in FR island, using the FR4QT Mario's station, 4él monobander yagi on 15 and 20m and 100 W,       much easy for DX'ing than QRP . . . . Tnank you very much to Mario FR4QT.  

            After long time without RUFZ training again and new score up to 32000pts but no better speed.


At home, with TS-850 the power is generally 50 Watts, using 100 W for big pile-up. Sometimes using also KX1 or K2 with very low power 100mW or 8mW.

In holidays or in portable using the little K2 at 0,5 to 5 Watts with 1/4 wave vertical for 10m to 20m or short vertical for 30 and 40m on 6,5m fishing-rod. Using also the KX1 at 1,5 to 3,5W on 20, 30 or 40m with same antennas.

Using also a 12,5m fiberglass pole for full size 1/4 wave vertical on 30 and 40m.

The 2 antennas with only 1 radial 0,5m or 2m over the ground, 

336 DXCC CW : 160m 105 - 80m 221 - 40m 288 - 30m 264 - 20m 316 - 17m 263 - 15m 300 - 12m 222 - 10m 253
