I have my present call since 1980 after moving to France with my job in 1979. Active on HF bands only, with an FT950 or a TS450 @ 100W, a 40M long doublet, and a homebrew Z-Match. On 17M, 40M & 80M mostly at the moment, sometimes on 12M or 10M.
First licenced as G3RTH in 1963, mostly active on 160M for several years, it was very different in those days, all home-built, mostly valve, transmitters, and with only 10W on Topband! then from ~1967, only intermittantly active, due to studying, to work, and having a family!! Now we are both retired, and I have more time for radio, when she agrees !!!!
NB. I lost interest in QSLs in the 70s, and I have no current bureau membership, if I receive a card I will print one on the pc and return it, otherwise no QSLs, I do check eQSL and QRZ regularly. à bientôt, Phil.
