Hi there guys...

First of all, thanks to take the time to look me up.  Just a few info about myself if you want to keep on reading.                                                        

Born in 1960 and fond of radio since I was a young boy, I got my first DX in Dicember 1972 when, with a CB radio 23 CH. only AM, 60 watts (thanks to one 6KD6) and a half wave vertical, I made qso with Nantes (France). Two years later, with the same working conditions, I made my first real DX contact with Cabimas (Venezuela). At once I belived it was a fake but when I received the QSL card, I really touched the sky with one finger...!           

I got my licence in March 1990 and even if  I've completed the game many years ago, (Top Honor Roll Mixed since 2007) I still like HF DXing  in every its way: dxpeditions, contests, pilups as well as a good RagChew with some of many friends of mine all around the world.               

From 1995 to 2011 I've joined the CQWW SSB as S.O.S.B. with the special call IR5T. ​Among my best  scores:  #1 World on 7 mhz in 1999 - #5 world and #1 Europe on 21 mhz in 2000 -  #2 World and  #1 Europe on 14 mhz in 2001 (still EU record).                                                                             

At present time I am mostly active in 40 and 20 meters, both SSB and CW but from time to time you can take me up also on 30 meters, where I try to improve my telegraphy capacities.                                                                                                                                                                              

So guys... stay tuned and see you soon on the air...!

Good health to everybody and VY 73' de Joseph
