RIXHEIM is just outside MULHOUSE, Locator JN37QS.. 100km south of Strasbourg / East of France..

20- 30 km from the borders with Germany and Switzerland.

French département No 68      ........Region / County : ALSACE

I am licenced since 1982 .... => I am QRV from 80 m to 10 m.....

Running Elecraft K3S , Kenwood TS-590SG  and Icom IC-7300


=> Antenna building is still very important to me.. : 

All antennas are homemade,including vertical dipoles, inverted-vee dipoles and delta loop antennas. Also small vertical 2 - element beams   and vertical Moxons... at ground level as temporary antennas for testing purposes. When running 100 Watts p.e.p on ssb for DXing from a small estate, without any tower....,your basic antenna has to be very efficient... This include low loss feeders like ladderline  200 Ohm  and   450 Ohm on the multiband antennas .


Wire delta Loop for 10 / 12 m   

CF = 26.7 MHz    =>   wirelength  = 11.46 m    =>   3.82 m  each side

10 m above ground  , apex at the bottom , fed with 450 Ohm Wireman  

=>  Symmetrical tuner MFJ-974B

Works very well an all the two bands...!!!





Vertical dipole  for 40 m

12m high ( 2X 6m ) with capacity hats ...on a 13m fiberglasmast... Wire is 2 mm Silverwire, reenforced with stainless steel wire. Loading coils at the feeding point are wound with the same wire, on 80 mm plastic bottles.Antenna ist 1m off ground, with a totally separate ground screen of 20 radials , each 3 m long , bonded on a metal plate. => very large bandwidth...........==> no retuning necessary on the symetrical antenna tuner.. on all the bands....This antenna also works very well on all bands...between 10 m and 40m, with 200 Ohm symmetrical line...

DX on 40m SSB : USA east coast, Canada, KP2 Virgin Islands, UA9 West Sibiria , EA8 Canary Islands , 7W5 Algeria,  Colombia..



Centerfed  dipole   for 10 m- 80 m  at 10 m is behind the house

2 X 15.6 m  with 600Ohm  ladderline


Other hobbies :

my cat, wines, cooking , computer, music, photography, moovies, travelling

( 5 continents already done.. ).

Now retired on the first of  january 2017 ......with 64 years..
