Re: Online scams etc. Please note that I am not selling or buying any equipment on-line. The email address listed above is the only one I have that is connected with Amateur Radio, any others that purport to use my name or callsigns are false.
Please use the QSL field on your own QRZ page to indicate if (and how) you want to QSL!
My QTH is situated near the coast 1 mile east of the Village of St. Keverne on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall, England. The Lizard is a very historical area for the development of wireless and not far from here is Poldhu Cove where Marconi sent his first transatlantic transmission to Newfoundland.
The Poldhu Amateur Radio Club hosts the Marconi Centrecallsign GB2GM,where we have a permanent exhibition commemorating this great event. Please see GB2GM QRZ.COM page for special events.
My antennas include a 3 element SteppIR mounted on a 45 foot Tennamast, a Cushcraft R5 vertical, 140 foot doublet, a trap dipole inverted vee at 20 feet for NVIS operation.
The Radio is a Yaesu Mark V + Tokyo HL-700B amp. My main interest is exploring the differences between types of antenna. I prefer a good QSO to a 59 exchange and QSL via bureau and LotW but if sending direct please use a 6x4 inch envelope for return card.
I am experimenting with WSPR and running two simultaneous stations to compare two antennas at the same time
Other interests include Coast Watch where volunteers man a coastal lookout station at Nare Point opposite Falmouth, for the safety of small boat users.
