  • Bio


I've dicovered the Ham Radio activity with a family friend who was Hamradio "Jean-Marie" F4EMZ (sk), so I begun the radio, as a SWL when i was 13 years old and the life will go on....I stopped radio activity in 2002 when i started to work. 

I've restarted the HAM Radio Study in March 2015 on advices from OM as ON3YP, ON3DT, ... and i did the "HAREC" exam  (full french ham license ) in the begining of July 2015 !

Thanks to my RadioClub: The Radio Club of the North of France "RCNF",(QRZ: F8KKH, ),  for all lessons given to me.
