Licenced in 1964. Held many calls including ZC4FC/5B4FC whilst with the RAF at Nicosia, Cyprus. I was very active back in the UK in the 60s & 70s especially as Britain's most northerly ham located on the island of Unst in the Shetland Islands as GM3SVK and worked over 200 countries for the DXCC in 2 years - not very good by today's standards. I have many awards for winning various phone and CW contests and hold over 50 awards for IOTA, DXCC, WAZ, WAE, WAS, WDR, WAB, OHA etc etc.
I am a keen CW operator and was a service engineer for a radio telephone company before joining British Gas as their Essex Communications Officer. I retired in 1993 and currently run my own TV and Video production company filming weddings, parties and corporate promotions for which I also have several awards. I am currently heard on CQ100 and I have recently purchased a Yaesu FT857 which just gives a maximum power of 100 watts to 20M, 40M, 30M, 10M and 17M dipoles. Although I mainly use CW, I have been known to venture up to the SSB end. So I look forward to a QSO with you sometime. I can often be heard pounding the brass using our club's callsign of GX4HRC/A (see below).
I am currently married (XYL Diane) with a 18 year old daughter, Georgina who has had a few behavioural problems. I also have a son and daughter from a previous relationship. My daughter, Debbie, lived, until recently,with her husband in EA8 (Lanzarote) whilst my son, Christopher, is currently settled with his Swedish wife in Sweden and have two daughters.. If anyone ever remembers me, I'd be delighted to hear from them.
Ex callsigns are ZC4FC, GD3SVK, GI3SVK, 3V8DX, T32C
Ckeck for contacts with:
G3SVK, GR3SVK, GQ3SVK, GX4HRC/A, GX8HRC/A, GO3SVK
