I go by "Jean" for radio. 

If you're reading this, we probably just had a CW QSO. Born in 1955. Got interested in ham radio in the early 70s (thanks to Pierre, F6BLZ, Philippe, F1BYI and Thierry F6FYZ, SK). Pierre and Philippe were my patient elmers when I joined the high school radioclub F6KIK (Lycée Charlemagne, Paris). Unfortunately, the radioclub no longer exists.

I work as a researcher (pharmacologist) in a company that markets contrast agents for medical imaging. I'm interested in the design and testing of contrast agents for molecular imaging of cancer (magnetic resonance imaging, MRI, and nuclear medicine), radio-opaque oily embolization agents for drug delivery in interventional radiology for the treatment of liver cancer, and, last but not least, in the study of the toxic effects of contrast agents as well, especially those used in MRI.

Married, to Anne-Sophie, who patiently keeps the ladder secure when I climb trees for attaching antennas. Two beautiful children.

CW enthusiast. I caught the CW bug during my two years as a novice (callsign was FB1BAM).  I usually participate in several CW contests, including CQ WW, CQ WPX and French "Coupe du REF" (in the latter case, either from Department 14, i.e. Calvados, or from 94, i.e. Val de Marne).

I sometimes operate from islands. I'm QSL manager for TM6ILE (from Groix Island, South Brittany, IOTA-EU-048, in 2003 and 2004. I've been also TM2PHG (March 2005, QSL via Evelyne, F5RPB), and EA1/, EA7/, EA6/, FM/, VE2/ FR/, M/, GU/, OE1, and CT9/.

Latest activity (30 April - 6 May 2017) was from Menorca Island (Balearic islands, EU-OO4). Locator was JM19WX (Ciutadella). My QSL card will be automatically sent through the bureau.

Below two QSL cards of /P activities:

i

 

Station:  TS-590S, IC-746 and FT-897, trapped dipole (40 - 10 m) + various (and quite strange) home-made antennas. Antenna farm is impossible in my present QTH. When /P in Normandy, I now use a spiderbeam or a windom. Most often, I use an iambic paddle (Magnetic Classic) from Begali, and sometimes an old Hi-Mound paddle, the latter for purely sentimental reasons (has been my first key), or a Bencher as well.

No skimmer, no remote station, no webSDR, etc.

Barefoot transmissions, sometimes QRP. I usually call the DXpeditions when big guns are satisfied. Well, it sometimes work. 

Member of REF, Union Francaise des Telegraphistes (UFT), GACW, ARRL, IPHG (International Pharmacy Ham Group) and SOC ("The Second Class Operator's Club", AGN ? AGN ?).

QTH is Saint Mande (JN18EU), a small city (23,000 inhabitants) that adjoins both Paris and a nice park, Bois de Vincennes. 

I'm also often QRV /P from Lisieux (Normandy, JN09CE), including on the 6-metre band. I'm becoming increasingly interested in CW traffic on this band, using home made antennas. This said, I still have a lot to learn to improve my DXing skills !

Below my spiderbeam (lightweight model, no rotor) just after being installed in my Normandy garden.

Other hobbies: Russian literature, history (mostly WW1and French Revolution), theatre, jazz, baroque music, Spanish language. Sport: swimming (my kids call me "human torpedo". I suspect they're laughing at me).

QSL via bureau or direct (SWL welcome). I also upload my log in LotW and Club Log.

No eQSL. Sorry for the inconvenience.
