Hello,

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.

In the very first years I operated almost exclusively on Satellites like AO-10, AO-7, AO-27, RS-10/11, RS-12/13, RS-15, KO-23, KO-25, GO-32, FO-20, FO-29 and others. 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.

Since after I moved to New York City I have been only doing HF, almost always CW. I have a dipole (40/20/15/10) on the roof of my NYC apartment and with it I managed to complete my DXCC.
I'm very interested about portable DXing and I love making very small Magnetic Loops.

Best 73's and good DX

Alain K1FM
