Rig: K2 (100W) and G5RV dipoles. CW software = SD. Data software = MixW. Located on south coast (Rockley). Current activity ends April 10 2014.
I am back at home in UK now. My first job is to repair the logs - I have two faulty hard disks to recover log data from and then I have to type more (<1000) from paper logs. THEN I will go through all the QSLs and QSL requests received (in case log data needs correcting). All emails received will get a reply. Then I will upload to LOTW - I hope this will be before mid-May. I made about 4700 QSO's.
17 April: all paper logs have been typed in. I am still trying to recover data from a faulty hard disk; data is lost for 26 March between 0340-2230 utc (some cw and some RTTY QSOs). All other log entries are ok.
I need a new laptop for next year.I accept e-mail requests for bureau QSLs; please do not send a card if you do this. In one day I often make over 200 QSO's, so please help me to find your QSO in my log; I sometimes get requests without info! 'Log extracts' are fine, that is: Date (UTC), time (UTC), band, mode, and your callsign. I do not QSL from QRZ Logbook. I do not use EQSL. I do not read QRZ messages.
For direct QSL's please send an addressed envelope plus one IRC or US$2 for all of the world via G3RWL only. I do not accept IRCs with 2013 expiry. If you do not send envelope or correct postage I will return my QSL to you via the bureau. All QSO's up to April 2013 have been entered on LOTW. I DO NOT ACCEPT EURO NOTES and COINS or 2013 expiry IRCs.
This rig and antennas are the same as I used at FH/G3SWH from 26 February 2009 to 4 March 2009 (QSL via G3SWH). I was also an operator at T32C (QSL via G3NUG).
I last uploaded to LOTW in 2013, Almost 5000 QSOs that trip, probably <4000 QSOs this time.
Please DO NOT work me more than once per band; this wastes my time and takes QSOs that someone else could have had. I HATE duplicates.
For all other operator info, see G3RWL. When I am on a DX trip I do not reply to email until I go home to G3RWL.
I mostly make my QSOs in contest style: XX1XX 599, TU (next pse), YY2YY 599, TU etc etc. Someone asked me if I like to be so fast. Yes but I will always answer questions and I chat sometimes. Why do I like it ? because, although 8P6 is not high on the world's 'wanted' list, it is not a 'common' country - there aren't so many cw operators there - and I enjoy to give many people a new country. If I stop to chat to everyone then there is less time for many people to get the new country. My pleasure is to give this 'new one' to people.
QRP stations: I NEVER log /QRP, please don't send it to me. Likewise I will NEVER put /QRP on QSL cards.
