Sofiane Barkat is my name and i was born on January 23rd 1968. My QTH right now is Algiers the capital city of Algeria, a country located in the centre north of Africa.
At the base I am a mechanical engineer, but I have done a various things as creating and managing for a long time a modest IT company. Then i worked as a journalist in a daily newspaper, specialized on automotive. And now I create a web site, in French, that gives most all informations on automotive activities in Algeria and sometimes abroad: DZMOTION.COM. I also teached at the algerian polytechnic military school. Now, for a new experience, I am working as translator in Monastir (Tunisia)
I came to ham radio on 1983 at my high school’s radio club. I was first licensed on 2003 with the actual callsign: 7X2GX. I am also proud that my little daughter Leila (8 yo) is taking over the hobby and regularly participate to youngsters on the air with the special callsign 7X2YOTA.
I also enjoy navigating ans fishing on my small boat called “Nedjma”. In one word, I like all what concern sea activities.
