Ivan F3AT today celebrates his 100th birthday. A great CW operator and heard on the bands from time to time. I wrote an article based on Ivan's biographic notes for the Swedish amateur radio association SSA*s monthly magazine QTC six years ago. Ivan has been in ham radio since 1931, first as a "pirate" and then licensed not only in France but in some central African countries where he was a CW operator in the past.
Congratulations to a great radio amateur!
