Shack Radio F4IIZ

Greetings from far out France.

More specifically, we're located in the Soutwest France, in the region of Occitanie, in a small village at about 20km West from Toulouse.

My name is Christophe an i'am 56 years old.

I have been a licensed Amateur Radio operator since June 19, 2019 and I currently hold a F4 class license (all mmodes).

In the work world, I'am since 25+ years in electronic production. Lots of cool technology , but unfortunately it don't leave much time for radio.

My history

I started radio in the 80's in SWL with a Realistic Pro-2010 and a Kenwood R2000.


My Realistic PRO-2010 is replaced by a AOR AR-3000 full band 0-2GHz and full mode that I always have.


In 1988, I bought a Yaesu FT-747GX and home made a cubical quad 2 elements.

That year, I started a license preparation Amateur radio 'D' with CW, but i never finished ...

Professional reasons made me stop radio in 1990.

2016, year of the rebirth

I took over the radio in 2016 with the purchase of a Kenwood TS-450S and Sirio vector 4000 antenna.
It is my actual tranceiver.

In the 2019-06-18 after 3 months of preparation with F6KGL-F5KFF pdf lessons (many thanks to them !!!) , I get my F4 license.
