WARNING

PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT HAVE A GOOGLE_MAIL ACCOUNT
SOME NIGERIAN PITA HAS LIFTED MY DETAILS AND IS USING THEM TO RUN A SCAM RIPPING OTHER AMATEURS OFF BY ANSWERING WANTED ADVERTS AND THEN ASKING PAYMENTS TO WESTERN UNION. HE WILL THEN TAKE YOUR MONEY AND PRODUCE NOTHING. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME. THE ABOVE EMAIL WILL REACH ME AND I DO HAVE A PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS. IF YOU WISH TO CHECK OUT MY WEB PAGE, PLEASE LOOK AT G3LDI.CO.UK

These emails typically offer used ham radio equipment, including antennas,
for sale. They are normally signed with my name and address.

I would therefore urge anyone receiving such an email to exercise extreme
caution, and NOT to part with any cash, as it will almost certainly be a
scam!

Please take care!

 

I was first licenced in 1956 as a keen teen-ager. DX was the main interest in those days and I have been hooked ever since. I just need P5 now! I became interested in data, RTTY as it was then, with Creed teleprinter gear. Now the interest is just as great and I use a PC with N1MM and MMTTY plus a load of other software. I am also Chairman of BARTG so like to support the BARTG contests. I have just written a booklet called RTTY/PSK31 for Radio Amateurs to encourage the newbies onto data modes.

CW has been with me all those years too and I am now Co-ordinator of the GB2CW project for the RSGB. We provide a national service of Morse transmissions for the beginner right up to 35 wpm if needed, to encourage the use of CW on the air. It was a bad move to abandon the Morse test. My booklet, Morse for Radio Amateurs is selling well however, both in the UK and also NA. I am now re-writing it, adding some more updated information. We can always use new volunteer instructors. Why not think about donating an hour a week to a very good cause! We need to maintain a pool of good CW ops.

Email me for details of how to volunteer!

I am also a musician, classically trained on piano from the age of 5, and ran my own band for 40 years. I still play, but now use a Kawai MP5 professional stage piano. Most of my work is now in restaurants as background music, playing jazz standards. I would dearly loved to have been a concert pianist but my hands were not large enough, unlike Oscar Peterson, one of my jazz favourites. I also like Jacques Loussier, with his famous Play Bach series.   Lots of musicians are involved in amateur radio, famous ones among them, such as John Lill the concert pianist.

I still run GB7LDI, a full-time BBS but only with Internet access.Try g3ldi.shacknet.nu port 6400. I also run the local DX CLuster, GB7RDX, also with Internet access. Try g3ldi.shacknet.nu port 7000

Antennas include a Rhombic, 4 wavelengths per leg on 20 meters, pointed NW and up at about 80ft, a 4-el SteppIr at 110ft and numerous dipoles.

I am now retired from TV/Video engineering, and enjoy my hobbies, which also include gardening. I enjoy writing for PW, CQ, Radcom and other mags. Check my web site: www.g3ldi.co.uk Thanks for checking on me!

 

 

This picture of my shack was taken in 2001 when I was still using my Icom 751 transceiver. I changed it shortly after this to a Yaesu FT-1000MP which I still have. I also have the FT-2000 which is a much better CW transceiver, although the FT-1000MP was OK after I did the W8JI mod. Prior to that, it had awful clicks, as they all do. I will update this when I can.
