I support the DX Code of Conduct

I deplore deliberate QRM (DQRM) of all types - including the DQRM caused by European stations persistently monopolizing frequencies in the band segments 14.190 - 14.200 MHz and 3.790 - 3.800 MHz.


Firstly, thank you for looking me up on qrz.com!

Although these days I normally only initiate exchange of QSLs if you are a "new one" for the band or really rare DX, I do reply to all QSLs received, via the bureau if your card is received that way, or direct if you send me yours direct - and there is no need to enclose IRCs, etc for return postage!


I have been licensed since 1963, although only active since 1971.

My equipment currently is an ICOM IC-756 Pro III with an ICOM PW-1 linear running 400W pep into an Optibeam OBW10-5 at a height of about 17m, or a trapped inverted-V for 40 and 80m.

My interest has always primarily been in DXing and I am currently one position below the top of DXCC Honour Roll with 339 current entities confirmed and 362 confirmed all time, all on SSB.  I only need North Korea P5 (unfortunately missed the P5/4L4FN operation in the early-2000s due to a period of inactivity around that time).


Professionally, I worked for many years at the University of Birmingham in UK teaching astronomy and astrophysics, together with research activities developing scientific instrumentation for satellites, most recently in the field of solar physics research.

I have now taken early retirement from the university but continue to work as a consultant in this research area.

I also have a part-time research post at the University of Valencia in Spain, where I also work on developing scientific instrumentation for satellites (though not active as an EA5 at present).


Apart from DXing my other great passions in life are windsurfing, travel to interesting and exotic places, and good food and wine, and I have recently started learning kitesurfing!

I will try to uplink some photos soon but for now thank you for reading my profile and see you on the bands (or in the pileups).
