The operator review :

I was born in French department (DDFM) 10 near Troyes, I am now 34, involved in Signal Forces since 1993.
I started my carrier in 43rd transmission Corp in Metz, then in 28th in Orleans and now in Issoire, still as radiocommunication specialist.

About Ham radio

I have got my first licence "C" class in 1992 when I was 19 and I've got FC1IRO call sign with the radio club of "La Foret d'Orient" F6KJG. then I got FE5IRO in August 1994 when I was 21.

* From 1993 to 1995  I operated F5KAB radio club of the 43rd RT ;
* Since 1995, F5KIN the 28th RT radio club in Orleans then Issoire ;
* In 1997, TT8 but I didn't had time to get a call there ;
* In 2002, FR/F5IRO, Reunion Island ;
* TM6RT for the 60th anniversary of Signal Corp ;
* In 2003 TO4E, Europa Island Dxpedition team member (IOTA AF-009) 
* In 2004 FK/F5IRO, New Caledonia and,
* in 2005 FY/F5IRO and TO7R Salut Island, TM1Y pour l'IARU VHF.

I do not often work with my own call sign, I prefer Dxpedition or contest parties at radioclub station. I enjoy mainly CW and now digimodes. My next air could be the QRP DXCC CW award.

Equipment :

I bought all on my own means, without any sponsor (it is my decision). I chose a FT-857D, a "micro KEYER" from microHAM for digimodes, a paddle Bencher BY-2 and a LDG Z-11 PRO tuner. As antenna I needed something small and light to allow easy transportation, without trapp and all band. The famous fullsize G5RV was spotted. It is the like I used in FY.

The WINLOG 32 software for log and Win-Test for the contests.
