GO3UCQ Special event station for the 2012 Olympic Games
26/07/2012 Now operating as GO3UCQ until 23:59 09/09/2012.
My working life was spent in photography. Firstly from 1961-1965 as a Royal Air Force photographer stationed at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire 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 in a local photographic laboratory 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. 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 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, a TGM MQ36-sr mini beam, a Butternut HF6v with 36 x 30' radials and a 300ohm centre fed 102 foot doublet. I operate mainly CW and digi modes at times. I am a beta tester for Ham radio Deluxe.
