Who am I? Engaged in the French Navy as a Radio (operator, technician, then development engineer), I left the Navy in 1990. I then created my SME / SMI Strategic Consulting Company, focused on the Quality, Safety, and Environment sectors. I sold my business in 2016, I was 65 years old.
Since the age of 16, I have always volunteered in Radio Clubs. I started teaching CW and technique in 1969, and I never stopped.
My technical passion is the development of antennas in order to optimize their performance in their environment.
My traffic passion is CW, which I consider to be the ultimate radio craft activity. In 1990 I had counted more than 110,000 CW QSOs, out of competition. Since that date I stopped counting … I practice the Pickaxe, the Vibro, the electronic manipulator and the PC keyboard.
My passion, DXing, has always been great human and radio adventures for me.
I operate on all bands from 160m to 2m.This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
