F6DQM.... What is it ?

This is the callsign that I was assigned by the French Telecom administration.
It is personal.
It means that I have passed the exam to obtain the radioamateur licence. It identifies my
station when I send on the air.
All radioamateurs around the world have got a personal callsign. The very first letters and
figures of the callsign identify your home country (F for France, G for England, K, N or W
for the United States, U or R for Russia, BY for China, JA for Japan etc).
These first characters are the prefixes. You may find the same prefixes in airplanes identifiers.

AMATEUR RADIO & CB ... What differences ?

CB (Citizen Band) is the free usage of the 27 MHz band with limited power and without
any chat constraint.
Radioamateurs use several dedicated frequency bands all over the radio spectrum, from
short waves to laser waves.
They experiment new techniques of radiocommunication and concepts of transmission :
analog and numeric transmissions, phone or image, directly or through terrestrial and
satellite repeaters, etc. The communication content must relate to radio topics.
Each radioamateur is authorized to send on the air by his own administration after taking
an exam in order to control his knowledge of radiocommunication : rules, laws and
radioelectricity theory.
