At nearly 100 years old, (G)2YT is one of the earliest UK radio callsigns, issued within the first few years of the 20th century. The original holder was Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Company Limited, used at the historic Poldhu Radio Station in Cornwall, SW England. It is widely accepted that in 1901 Poldhu became the transmitter for the first successful transatlantic radio signal.

The previous user of G2YT was Mr Crispin (Cris) Redshaw. Cris was a radio pioneer, using the call 'XZT' in 1912. He was later to become Chief Engineer of Dorchester Radio - Imperial Broadcasting Company and was believed to have worked with Marconi at Poldhu. Cris became silent key in 1974 and his relatives asked me if I would like to resurrect the old call. Having done this I discovered its significant history. I am the fourth custodian of G2YT, it having been reissued twice previously. I have twice worked 'old tImers' who knew Cris. G2YT was also used by Mr Frederick Rumary from Portishead, Somerset in the 1930's.

(G)2YT Poldhu was recorded as being used for HF communication tests in 1924 with the AWA [Amalgamated Wireless Australasia Limited] station at Willoughby near Sydney. For further information please see www.qsl.net/vk2dym/radio/Marconi.htm

I am the past and/or present holder of the following calls. G6BPO, G4MCK, G0FOX, VK2EPF, VK6FOX, VK5FOX, C56YT, HS0ZKI, G2YT/MM (Andaman Sea).

Present day station is either Kenwood TS990 or Icom 7800, often driving an SPE 2K linear amplifier. Main antenna is UltraBeam 6 element Yagi @ 60 mtr (195') above RF ground (27 metre guyed tower is on a hill overlooking marsh) and the source of the River Purwell. Also G5RV from top of tower.

Hobbies & interests other than amateur radio include; Motorcycle track and road-racing, wine, cooking, motorcycles old and new, digital photography, music, target shooting (1988,89,90,92,94 & 2001 British Champion in 100m moving target centrefire rifle), control-line speed aeromodelling (holder of 4 x National records), deer stalking/hunting (qualified deer stalking instructor), game fishing (holder of unofficial African record for rod/line caught fish with a Tiger Shark at 1,631 lbs - (740Kg).
