Video of the antenna I use on my car: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Da43_y_OMw&feature=plcp


Although I am a resident in Spain since 1991, I am originally from Scotland.


Currently also licenced as GM7CXM (since 1988) and US general class N5GIN (originally KG5JQD)


Have also operated from C6, G, GW, EI, OZ, SM, DL, ON, PA, LX, F, I, YO, HB9, EA6, EA8, OK


I enjoy several different aspects of the hobby.


First of all I am a keen mobiler. This started off in 2000 as a result of limited time availability at home. My first basic station, using a TS140S and helical whips, has undergone many changes since then. The current setup uses Kenwood TS-590 and a Tokyo Hypower HL-700B amplifier. The antenna system is based on interconnecting 3/8” masts, whips, coils, and capacity hats, and can be configured to suit almost any need from 80 – 10m. I usually use full size quarter wave antennas on 20-10 while parked, with the MFJ 1979 telescopic whip. I also have several fishing rods and spiderpoles for semi-portable operations. I am fortunate that I work in the port of Valencia and quickly discovered that salt water and vertical antennas is a great combination, my current entity total from the mobile is 329 (326 confirmed).


Although not so active, I also have a station at my city centre flat which consists of a Yaesu FT2000D, Acom 1000, and an Optibeam OB6-3M.


I also enjoy contesting. Currently my contesting activity is centred around the Torrent Contest Club (http://ea5kv.ure.es) but over the last few years I have done contests in many shapes and forms, either as SOSB, mobile, portable, or part of the teams at EA5DF, EA5DFV, and EA5HQ. I was fortunate enough to be part of the national HQ team in the 2006 IARU contest, was phone coordinator of the Spanish team for the 2007 event, and co-organizer of the 2013 and 2014 teams (2nd place world on both occasions).


Portable activities also form a part of my operations. After trying many different combinations, I currently use a KX3 with a 20A lithium battery from my wife's golf cart. It gives me 3 times as much autonomy as my old 7Ah SLAB battery and weighs the same. For antennas, it depends. For spanish trigpoint activity, a simple 40m dipole supported by a 7m fishing rod which doubles as a walking stick. Otherwise, end fed wires or an Alex loop.I find these configurations give the best balance between weight, size, current draw, efficiency, and setup time.


QSL info: Direct QSLs with SAE and return postage will be returned direct. If no SAE and/or insufficient postage, QSL will be returned by the bureau.
