If you are reading this because you worked me on the bands, thank you for the QSO.
My name is Jean-Pierre (Jean), I live 50 Km SW of Brussels in a village, Frasnes-lez-Buissenal situated near the city of Tournai.

I got interested in radio in my teens and I've been an SWL since I was about 15 years old (Thanks ON4CD to indroduce me in the Ham Radio world). After I learned CW in the army while serving as a radio operator, I got my licence in 1969. Born in 1947 and active in ham radio since 1969 with no interruption. Retired in 2005 (4 decades in sugar beet industry as Process Control specialist).
My main interests in ham radio are :
- make QSO mostly in CW (95 % of my QSO) @ 100 Watts (no amplifier)
- contests in CW or RTTY
- antenna construction and testing
Antenna park in 2017:
Butternut HF2V for 80, 40 and 30 M
Hexabeam G3TXQ 6 bands
LW for 160 M
5el Tribander FB53 Fritzel
End Fed 23 M long
3 el Yagi for 6 M (made by my friend ON4CD for OJ0V 2013 DXpedition)
Currently my main equipment is a Yaesu FT5000MP rig, a micro Keyer II and a Begali Stradivarius key.
The logging program is DXLab for every day and N1MM+ during contest.

I make more than 10.000 QSO per year (> 95 % in CW) and QSL managing becomes too much for me.
Sorry for collectors of paper cards, but I prefer to invest my money and time on radio projects and
make QSO than spending time sending paper QSL and in QSL control. Pse no paper card request.
We are in the era of computers and each QSO is uploaded after each QSO to eQSL and Clublog
and at the end of each session to LOTW.
