QSL image for G3ROG

RSARS 4169

I was first licensed in 1962 as GW3ROG at the age of 18. The QTH at the time was Rhymney, in Monmouthshire, South Wales. (now Gwent). At the time I was a member of Blackwood and District Amateur Radio Society, GW6GW.

I have now lived near the centre of the historic Cathedral City of Winchester since 1983, about 100 km SW of London.

I have been G3ROG since 1967, except for 1989-1980 when I was G3ROG/W2 located on Long Island, New York, USA.

On leaving school, I became an Undergraduate Student Apprentice with the General Post Office Telephone Engineering Department, graduating as a Chartered Electrical Engineer in 1967 and a Fellow of the Instution of Electrical Engineers in 1988. After 40 years in full time employment, I worked as an Independant Consultant in Telecommunications, before retiring in 2011, in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and extensively in Southern Africa.

My intial Amateur Radio operation was on 160/80/40, AM and CW, on a (highly converted) WW2 19 set, running up to 20 watts to an 807. Then home built, over several years an AM/CW rig, for the same three bands; aquired a Marconi CR100 receiver and assembled a Heathkit HR-100.

Now back on the air, on HF, running 100 watts on SSB, CW and Datamodes into a 37.5 m inverted L @ 8.5m.  Rig is Kenwood 590s

My interests include CW, PSK 31, JT65-HF, WSJT-X, RTTY and other data modes. The Creed teleprinter was sold off many years ago! Also I operate LF and VHF contests, mainly the RSGB Club Contests on 80m for Itchen Valley Amateur Radio Club, in addition, IOTA, BERU contests, CW National Field Day and WAB award.

Homebrew projects include experimenting with a loop antenna, and building a Software Defined Radio.

 

I am also member 4169 of the Royal Signals Amateur Radio Society, and in 2013-2014 was Chairman of Itchen Valley Amateur Radio Club.
