Some dates important for me:
- J-Jacques MAINTOUX was born
in 1957 in AUBUSSON - 23 (centre of France).
- In 1975, I adhere to the "club
des radioamateurs Aubussonais - F6KSX".
- In 1976, I become F1EHN.
- From 1976 until 1987, I had
activity with my personal station (unsettled in 1995) but the most
important traffic was made with the team F6KSX.
Numerous friends joined these various portable expeditions.
- From 1988, F6KSX turns to
the activity EME. From this date, I did not use any more my personal
- According to the expeditions
EME, we needed an automatic Moon tracking to improve the efficiency
of the station. The program of VK3UM presented to the conference of
TRENTON in 1990 seemed interesting and I developed my first interface
EME. Regrettably, the design of VK3UM was not completely ended and
he was developing its own interface. After a negative answer on support
request, I decided to develop my tracking software.
- In 1992 the
first version appeared, after a first test during the F6KSX Jersey
EME expedition in 1991.
- Then the
next versions appeared and the program became the freeware
EME System such as it is today.
I would like to clarify that
I am not a programmer. I am Electronic engineer specialized in RF and
microwave radar sensors. Today I work in the THALES
To end, I hope that you will
have a lot of pleasure to visit my site, to use EME System and to go
through the history of F6KSX.
