My name is 'Philip', I live in the historical old town of Penrith, in the County of Cumbria (Maidenhead locator IO84OQ) on the edge of the 'Lake District National Park', in NW England, from where the majority of my amateur radio activity takes place.
I have been a SWL since 1983 and a Radio Amateur since 1985, using HF/VHF/UHF radios professionally before and since then.
I am now semi retired and since 2011 have been employed by a US Space & Defence organisation, having previously served within the UK Ministry of Defence.
From May to August you are most likely to find me chasing DX on 50/70/144 MHz via Sporadic-E and any other time chasing VHF DX via Meteor Scatter or on HF using JT65/JT9 data modes.
My work can take me anywhere in the World, but you are most likely to hear me using one the following callsigns:
EA6/G0ISW- Majorca island
5B4/G0ISW - Cyprus
W4/G0ISW - USA
I always send QSL confirmation of QSOs immediately for JT65/JT9/JT6M contacts via eQSL, LOTW and send my printed cards too, via the RSGB QSL bureau approximately every 3 months i.e soon after 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October each year.
