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.
( Please note I do not, and never have, used a decoder to read Morse Code. To do so is neither satisfying nor cleaver, it is merely pretentious.)
Now running a Yeasu FT-847.
For HF I use a 'Fan Dipole.' It has just two dipoles connected to a central balun. One dipole cut for 80m & one for 40m. With the aid of a manual A.T.U. One (or both) dipoles radiate on all HF bands. The antennas run over the bungalow in a rather flat inverted ‘V’. As I live on the side of a South East facing hill they seem to have the radiation pattern of a sloper.
Since 2014 I've been QRV on Satellites as well. They say, "You can’t teach an old dog new tricks." I prefer to ignore that and instead believe that, "You’re never too old to learn."
For satellite operation; 6 element 2mtr and 9 element 70cms, X quad Antennas with remote polarization control and are steerable in Azimuth & Elevation.
No wonder I have white hair.
