This is Alain from New York City.

My current callsign is K1FM. In the past I also was active as WW3WW, IZ6BYY, IW6PBC and VK2ITM. I am 38 years old, OM since 16.

I operate from Astoria, Queens. My antenna is a fan dipole for 40/20/15/10 installed on the roof of a small building. I'm currently working on a 160/80 SM0VPO style spiral loop from inside my apartment which is giving me impressive results and (I hope) will soon be installed permanenty on the roof.

I spend a fair amount of time designign and building small SMD PCB's for ham related projects. When I'm not operating the soldering gun, I normally operate the CW key.

Another aspect of the hobby that attracts me the most is portable DXing. In particular, I love making very small Magnetic Loops. From time to time I update a small ham radio blog at k1fm.us.

My ham radio carreer began in Italy, at the end of the 90's. After waiting to reach legal age (in Italy you need to be 16 in order to have you own callsign) I started operating Satellites. At some point I leaerned that the MIR Space Station had some ham radio gear onboard and I was immediately hooked. After countless attempts, in 1996, I had my first voce contact with Col. Valery Korzun, the MIR Commander. I did that using a portable Kenwood TH-77 connected to a home made cubical quad. It was going to be the first contact of many. Shortly after I started the "ISS Fan Club" site, which still runs today.

If we had a QSO feel free to send me a QSL, either direct of via the Bureau. I enjoy receiving QSLs and normally reply within a few days.

Best 73 and good DX

Alain K1FM
