Just returning to the world of amateur radio following a break.
My first licence gave me the call sign G0CGB in 1985. When I moved to my present QTH in 2004 I was issued with the call EI6JQ which I foolishly allowed to laps in 2008. In November of 2013 I was issued with my present call sign.
Mostly a CW (Civilized Way of radio communication) operator I have been known to talk into a microphone from time to time.
Now running a Yeasu FT-847 into a coax centre fed 40mtr wire which I use for all the HF bands with the help of an Omni-match manual ATU. The antenna runs over the bungalow in a rather flat inverted ‘V’. As I live on the side of a South East facing hill it seems to have the radiation pattern of a sloper.
I'm QRV on Satellites as well. They say, "You can’t teach an old dog new tricks." I prefer to ignore that saying and instead believe that, "You’re never too old to learn."
(20th January 2014) At last the antennas are up and angled at 20 degrees. Each yagi has a remote controlled phase harness and an masthead pre-amp. The feeder cables are Westflex 103.
Also running down from the roof and across the facia board is the RG58 feeder for the HF doublet, part of which can be seen in the background.
Just tuning around the HF bands listening for interesting contacts.
