Welcome to the QRZ webpage of Amateur Radio Station G0VUH transmitting from a small village called Anston (IO93JI) (SK58) in the beautiful county of Yorkshire, which is about half hour drive from Sheffield the fourth largest city in England. I have been operating radio since 1982 with countries worked standing at 310 DXCC. My employment is within the National Health Service here as a Drug counsellor for the criminal justice system for the past ten years now.

When transmitting in psk the station operates via www.pskreporter.info/ a very useful tool in determining propagation conditions on the bands. If i am operating on the bands "Live on Air" will be activated via www.hrdlog.net this is where all contacts are uploaded in real time. I use the excellent Ham Radio Deluxe Programme with DM780 software into a SB-2000 Radio interface by CG Antenna.
