After almost 3 years of planning I started to put on a new tower.
Works are still in progress, basement is ready and tower is up
Only antenna system is missing.
Tower is a 18mt high self standing, with antenna elevator aka hazer from ANGELUCCI
Now I'm working on the rotator, with double worm reductor and DC motor.

I started experimenting packet radio
then in I discovered VHF DX
limiting my activity during the contests
due to my impossibility to build an home station.
In 1992 I put on the roof 2 16 el KLM and I started
to enjoying with tropo ES and FAI
In 1994 I changed the 16 el damaged with 2 13el KLM
and I started to enjoying with HSCW and SSB Meteorscatter
that's what I prefer in VHF DX.
In 1996 I had to remove my antennas
and start a QRT period long 6 years.
In March 2002 I moved to new house (JN54LL)
and I started to rebuild my station.
The 3rd of june 2002 my last qso was done the 22nd of june 1996
at 1734z i worked EI4IX using a 1/4 wave long out of the window.
The best way to restart my activity.
Now I'm QRV again in 144Mhz
In 2007 I moved in JN54MM where I currently live and I'm qrv.
