About Me

 Hello, my name is Janis and I am a ham radio enthusiast having held an Amateur
Radio licence since 1993. Prior to being licenced, I was a short wave listener
for many years.
 My callsign is YL3BF ( first call was YL3GBF )and through my hobby I have made 
many friends from all over the world.

 My main interest is operating in the digital modes( particularly BPSK31/63, QPSK,
JT65-HF and RTTY) or CW. I also use phone (both SSB and FM)

 I operate on all the HF bands from top band through to 15 and 30 metres,
and I may also be found on the 2 metre and 70 cm bands.

 In don't using LoTW, I respond 100% to all QSL cards received direct, via the 
Buro or by e-QSL. Licenced operators or SWL's requiring direct QSL's must enclose 
the appropriate postage, green stamps or IRC's.

 I look forward to meeting you on air, especially on 40,30,20,17,15,12 and 10 metres,
these being my favourite bands.

 International friendship, achieved through amateur radio, is fascinating and forms
a bond like no other I know. Radio amateurs truly have the world at their fingertips.
