Originally licensed as G8OYW in 1978, i first became an swl in 1974 at the age of 11. It was here that i gained a taste for 80m dx! 2m and 70cm ssb were used until G0JJG was issued in April 1988. Active all bands from 160m to 23cm, mainly 144 and up now as hf from this location is now ruined by switchmode and powerline (plt) noise.
80m Grey line propogation is a fascinating mode when the qrm is low enough, and at present a 2 element short vertical array is being used in a small garden, quarter wave spaced oriented ene=wsw.The ground system comprises some 2km of radials plus 60 square metres of wire mesh.
11ele and 300w on 144, 17ele and 300w on 432, 120w and 23 ele on 23cm. See www.youtube.com/g0jjg for some vhf and uhf dx recordings.
The shack is now shared with my youngest son, David, who is the proud holder of the call 2E0XDD.
QSL by paper, Eqsl or LOTW validation welcome!
Operation is slotted in around a hectic life - xyl+ 3 harmonics and a small company to run!
73 and enjoy the hobby! Joe
