QSL image for G0UOO

Hi,

I'm Rob, and I live in the Elham Valley in South Kent, near Folkestone. Starting out in this hobby as a schoolboy SWL back in the early 70s, I've been licensed since 1982; first as G6IGI, before passing the Morse test to gain my class A call in 1994.

I operate mostly on 60 and 40Mtrs.

My station consists of an Icom IC-7200 feeding a 20Mtr doublet antenna which is about 8Mtrs AGL. The antenna works very well on 60/40Mtrs for inter-G and nearer Eu contacts, although I have worked the USA on 60Mtrs and VK/ZL on 40Mtrs a few times too.

In summer 2013 I installed a Wouxun KG-UV920P dual-band radio in my car. After a break of around ten years it's nice to have a proper VHF/UHF mobile setup again, and I'm having a lot of fun with it.

When not playing radio I like to go here http://www.headcornaerodrome.co.uk/index.html and play aeroplanes. I'd love to go for a PPL, but there are more pressing things to spend the money on at the moment (food is one!). Maybe when I win the lottery . . .

Rob.

*** I DO NOT QSL***

I have so many cards now that I really do not need any more. Sorry, but I don't have the space or the time!

 

Some photos:

En route to the pub! (April)

 

Same view in June (Sarah and Sadie having a rest).

 

View towards Folkestone - The train is the Eurostar.

 

Towards home from the South West (November).

 

Towards home from the South East (June).

 

Village church and playground.

 

Sadie and me on the hills overlooking the English Channel (September).

 

Me again - don't ask!

 

Me and G-ADGT (DH82A Tiger Moth). They let me drive it too! It crashed a few months after this photo; happily both guys walked away with just minor injuries.

 

Sadie.

 

At the pub! ("The King's Arms", Elham)

Le Tour de France - July 2007:

Le Tour visited England in 2007 and this is "Côte de Farthing Common", just a couple of miles from home and near one of my /P locations.

An amazing atmosphere, and really good fun!

 

 

 

The walk to work - I used to work at the radio station on the hill.
