Amateur Radio :
I was born, and I live, in Paris on July 4th, 1969.
I have always been fascinated by wireless communications and exotic places.
I first got interested in Amateur Radio by operating on the 11 meter band, at the age of 11.
At 15, after I had worked in a supermarket during July, I proudly bought my very first transceiver, the FT277E.
I have it to this day, in perfect working order!
Soon afterwards, my parents bought me an Amstrad CPC 6128, which I used to learn CW. After a month of hard work I was able to read CW at 10 wpm, which is the required speed for a French ticket.
Then I recorded my own code tapes and tapes of CW QSO's that I heard on the air. The very first callsign I copied was an EA4.
I was so excited!
I can say that all my teenage years were dedicated to Ham Radio, rather than spending time in famous Parisian Night Clubs.
I live in Paris, in the 12th district. You can see below, two pics of my building.
