After being off and on the radio during the past 20 years, last year Julien finaly decided that he would like to be back on the air permanently.
As Julien does most of his DXing from his portable station, he bought himself a Superstar 9900 with a Sirio 5000 antenna and a 10m extendable flagpole with the DRX-111 Live wire antenna attached to the flagpole.
He enjoys any type of contact and he is still amazed by the numerous QSOs with stations around Europe.
Taking part in the Charlie India portable contest was also a great source of enjoyment to Julien.
Julien's QTH is located in Stranraer Southwest Scotland.
Stranraer lies on the shores of Loch Ryan in the Wigtownshire region of Dumfries and Galloway, in the far South West of Scotland, and is the second-largest town in Dumfries and Galloway.
Stranraer was formerly a ferry port connecting southwest Scotland with Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland.
This particular part of Wigtownshire has one of Scotland's most picturesque landscapes, home to Scotland's most southerly point at the Mull of Galloway (21 miles) and further east the Galloway Forest National Park (45 miles).

Being a HGV driver takes up most Julien's time, but when he is back home, Julien likes sharing being with his family.
Together, they enjoy going to gym and walking.
Julies also likes doing general jobs around the house and taking care of the garden.
