Thank you for visiting. My name is Denis. Born in the Marquesas Island in 1955, I got my ticket in 1984, call was FO8MD
My station has changed throughout the years,
- Started with a Belcom LS102-X (10m band only) with a home brew 3 el Yagi
- After a while, add a Yaesu FT-757GX II with home brew 4 band vertical antenna covering 10 to 40m
- Sold the FT-757GX-II got the Kenwood TS-940S, then a VIC20 computer used mainly for RTTY
- After some years of great fun I lost everything in a fire caused by a neighbour (1990).
- In 2004 got a Yaesu FT-897D, put up a 40m vertical antenna and start again QSOing from time to time
- 2007 buy a FT-101ZD and FT-102 (ebay), but the rigs are left in France at my brother QTH
- 2011 got a Drake TR-4Cw from a fellow ham here, still looking for a powersupply to start playing with
- september 2012 starting QSOing again with my FT-897D and a home brew 4 band vertical ant.
- december Santa gave me a YAESU FT-950, + got a FT-1000D from a fellow HAM here
