Brief bio - opinions and tastes :

Born in 1955 in Dunkerque (Malo-les-Bains) (France). Yes, where the famous battle and Allied DYNAMO operation took place in May 1940. On the 5th of June (anniversary of eve of Allied Forces disembarkment in Normandy).

SWL since age 13, starting by home brewing with a "PHILIPS-Electronic-Engineer-Box", then wiring LW/MW broadcasting and 2MHz MF marine band receivers, mounting HEATHKIT GR-64 rx and learning CW by listening to MF/HF coastal stations. HF Maritime radio was a stunning and whole world of men and techniques by itself, that world unfortunately and abnormaly has disappeared in France, and in numerous Western European countries.

For the ham license, I had to wait for minimum age required in France: 16 (directly with CW).

Still in love and fascinated with radiocommunications, especially CW and... digital modes (a wide new world to explore).

Convinced that there is still a possible endless life for amateur radiocommunications depending on the wilingness of the amateur community and their (so numerous) Associations, to mind openess and adaptation to new usages, however still respecting our tradition and history which helped the radiocommunication technologies to emmerge in the 20th century, particularly in the professional field (e.g. : SW possibilities, then SSB, then SITOR, then PACTOR, then PACKET, then APRS, then DSTAR, then ?).

---->>> In the present world of so-called "communication", Emergency and Interoperability are the latest key features able to save the amateur radiocommunication service from the actual risk of (underground programmed) death by making it (permanently) recognized by media and politicians.

My moto : "Eppure si muove", Gallileo Gallilei.

How to reach me on HF radio - Currently monitored frequency:

IF YOU WANT to FIND ME on radio:

  • For digital modes: center frequency equals herebelow "ON AIR" displayed frequency + 1.5 kHz;
  • For CW, AM, FM and D-STAR: carrier (i.e. your dial) frequency equals herebelow "ON AIR" displayed frequency;
  • For SSB: suppressed carrier (i.e. your dial) frequency equals herebelow "ON AIR" displayed frequency.
