Hello from Steve G1XOW in Nottinghamshire, England.
I am a COMPULSIVE DX'ER and also like a good ragchew with freinds around the world.
My favourite quotes "tuning on-air is the sound of an idiot in training" and "don't forget to enjoy life in your rush to the graveyard"
My 3 over 3 stack at 20 and 24m; me in the shack some years ago.
I'm a proud member of the Chiltern DX Club (CDXC), Scotland's DX Association (GMDX) and the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB).
My QSL Policy
Licensed for 30 years, I now mainly work DX on 17m, 15m, 10m, 6m bands, I also work on 40 / 80m DX working during the dark months.
I am QRV on all bands from 160m to 6m using the superb Flex 6300 SDR radio - I love it and nothing else comes close.
I've been a computer engineer for over 30 years. I'm a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and have been in the I.T industry since 1982. That is pre-Windows and even pre-DOS operating systems! I remember well the old green-screen days of CP/M and MP/M systems on a z80 CPU with an S100 bus...do you? I served my aprentiship working on DEC PDP11s
IMAGES OF NORTH EAST NOTTINGHAMSHIRE
*** Please click the images for more information about these historic places ***
Below is Southwell Minster. This is just 3 miles north of my QTH. 'The Minster' is the Cathedral and Diocese of Nottinghamshire. It was build in 1884, and is open to the public daily. If you are ever in the East Mindlands at any time you must make a visit.
Below a very frosty morning over the River Trent. 'The River' is one of the largest in England. It is 1 mile South East from my QTH. The River rises in the Staffordshire hills to the West and snakes its way East through Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire before joining the Humber Estuary near Hull, which then carries it out to the North Sea near Grimsby on the East coast.
Below is the Priory Church of St. Peter, our local parish church in Thurgarton Village. This church is 250 metres from my QTH (I'm just behind the trees to the left of the church). The original monastery stood here from around 1119. the current church was rebuilt on the same site around 1853.
Below is what remains of Newark Castle, about 7 miles North East of my QTH. The castle is thought to date back to around 1135 it was built under a grant from King Henry 1st to the Bishop of Lincoln.
