Biography

I got my license since 1977 back then when we needed the 10 & 15 wpm morse code test before performing the written exam. For the first year all allowed contacts were only on cw mode.

I discovered contest around 1995 when I upgraded my antenna system with a known contester. Since then I enter 10-12 contests each year on cw, ssb & rtty. Of course my own goal is to reach 200 countries on all 9 HF bands. The most difficult one will be 160m like most of us. This is why I work on details to reduce as much as possible lost and to improve my reception. Next 5-10 years this could become possible for the top band!

I am retired since April 2014 now I get more time to chase the rare dx and to have a nice conversation over HF bands.
