QSL: DIRECT

Ham Member Lookups: 11597

 

For more than 60 years I have religiously collected and answered all cards sent to me via the bureau. Now, unfortunately, due to the increasing demands on my time for more important family matters I can no longer cope with the enormous number of unsolicited qsl cards I receive for run-of-the-mill contacts and contest qsos. The RSGB bureau, like many others, is overloaded with unwanted and uncollected qsl cards. To reduce waste and the workload of volunteer qsl managers, I respectfully ask that you qsl only if you really do need a card from me. If you tell me when we are in qso that you desperately need my card I will write one out immediately to send via the bureau. Otherwise please send direct with an SAE and return postage.  IRCs are no longer acceptable and direct cards received without sufficient return postage will be replied to via the bureau.  With the last inflation busting rise in postal charges it now costs the best part of U$ 2.00 to send a minimum weight letter anywhere in the world outside of the U.K.

I started as a 12-year old SWL in 1947 when I built my first 1-valve battery operated regenerative short wave receiver using an HL2 triode valve. For many years I used homemade or modified goverment surplus equipment and it was1967 before I bought my first commercial rig, a KW2000A. When I retired in 1995 the KW was 'pensioned off' after 28 years of very hard work and replaced with an FT990 that is still in use today alongside other commercial and homebrew radios.

From 1951-53 I was one of the operators of G3CRS, the HMS Collingwood Radio Society.

From 1953-55 I held the licence for G3GZO, the HMS Ariel Radio Club.

I was first licenced as G3JFS in October 1953. My main interests are CW, RTTY and other data modes and home construction.  I do a lot of qrp operating but am not obsessed with it and I am quite happy to run 4 watts or 400 watts as needed.

Other callsigns held - GM3JFS, VK6AI, AX6AI, 5Z4PQ, DA1PE and ZB2/G3JFS.

Member of the RSGB, G-qrp Club (#10890), FISTS CW Club (#8985) and NAQCC (#7300).
