Hi and thanks for visiting GØUII on QRZ.com. First licenced as G7PNA in September 1993, then GØUII in December 1993 after a pass in the CW exam. Became active again on Amateur Radio in 2008 after a break of 11 years, this to allow me time for my other great passion of Moto X racing. Slowly rebuilt the station but suffered a disappointing setback, in that due to the location of my new QTH within the 'Green Belt' of Yorkshire's countryside, the local authority refuse to allow me to erect any masts and antennas, so I have to be content with my very modest HF9V Multiband Vertical and Cobwebb Antennas, although they do seem to work quite well despite the lack of height. I enjoy the challenge of my low budget antennas though, especially having owned a 60' tower and HF beam antennas at my previous QTH. From the age of 16, I worked for 26 years as an underground coal face electrician in several of Yorkshire's Coal Mines until the decimation of the industry in 2005. Redundancy then forced a change of career and I now work in the railway industry conducting electrical maintenance and repair of Yorkshire's trains at a large motive power depot. Other passions are my Honda CBR900RRV Fireblade, my Honda CB1300F13,and my two Alsation dogs Rory & Khea, the latter of which are not renowned for their good manners and are quite a handful to say the least! but are my personal 'Bodyguards', offering the best shack and motorcycle security available!!
