My working life was spent in photography and I have my father to thank for that. As a keen amateur photographer, and a good one I should add, he allowed me to help him in his darkroom, mixing chemicals and processing his film and photographs.

After a year at a local photo laboratory I joined the Royal Air Force and trained as a photographer. Later stationed at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire (Vulcan V bombers) then 2 1/2 years on Cyprus followed by a few months at RAF Wyton, Cambridge before demob. From 1965 to retirement in 2005 I worked back in the local photographic laboratory eventually becoming lab. manager.

First licensed as 5B4JF, with the RAF in Cyprus, in 1964 and later that year as VS9SJF on Socotra Island (RAF/ARMY Expedition) The only ham operation from Socotra until 7O6T in May 2012. I became G3UCQ in 1966.

I have been back to Soqotra (Socotra) twice, in 2002 and 2003. Visit my website at www.soqotra.info for details and photos of this rare and unique island. A big thrill was working 7O6T in May 2012 when I managed 12 slots. A great effort from the 7O6T team.

Married with two children who have children of their own now, Being grandparents is wonderful.

Current rig is a Yaesu FTDX-5000. Antennas - a new hexbeam from MW0JZE, which is working DX like I cannot believe,
shown here at its lowest height,

and a Butternut HF6v with 36 x 30' radials. I operate mainly CW and digi modes at times. Now I have a Heil Proset Elite I am using ssb more often. I am a beta tester for Ham Radio Deluxe.

Other hobbies include long walks with my wife, Rosemary of 51 years, golf (17 handicapper), gardening.

Please QSL via Bureau, LOTW or eQSL.com. Tks es 73s for looking me up.

John, G3UCQ
