Bonjour! Hello from France!

Post by Lucas | TransistorFR » 14 Jun 2018 14:20

Hello/Bonjour! :)

My name is Lucas and I live in Brindas (near of Lyon), in France. I'm 17 years old, 18 in August.
I have a huge passion for radio and television broadcasting since I turned 7. My interest for DXing has become important since May 2017.

Equipement I use: V3 Dongle | FM Ground Plane Antenna | Sony XDR-540DBP | Tecsun PL-600
I have the project to own a Yagi antenna in addition to the Ground Plane soon.

I also created a YouTube channel dedicated to DXing last month: ... jxMTmr2gw/

Thanks for accepting my request to join the forum.
