The early days. This photo was taken around 1956/7 and shows my BC-348Q with RF-25 converter, home brew PSU and a few other things. By this time I had joined the International Short Wave league and managed to collect quite a number of QSL cards. It would be a few more years before I got my licence.
This is my wife Soon-Young M3VIR and our daughter Rose So-Won. This photo was taken on the Han River in Seoul, South Korea 2010
Photo of my Butternut HF9V with the trap dipole on the telegraph pole to the left. I wish my neighbours tree would fall down!! Well a large part of this tree has just come down in the latest gale. It took out my W3DZZ but just missed the vertical! Now waiting for it to be cut down and taken away. My vertical might work better. I also plan to extend my W3DZZ for 160 in the short term. I am in the process if making the G3VIR Trap L for 80 & 160. At the moment is has a vertical leg of 33 feet with a 40 metre trap. The next stage is to increase the height to between 40 & 50 foot with the addition of an 80 metre trap to cover 160 metres. I might be able to work a bit of the real DX on 160 then. The Butternut is really too short for the low bands.
My greatest claim to fame! World Champion CQ WW DX Contest 1967. Single operater and hand written log etc. Could never do it in today's world. My equipment was a KW2000 running 10 watts to a half wave dipole at 80 feet. This was fed with open wire feeder. My only local contact was with ZC4GM. Gordon Moore who is sadly now a SK. Gordon, I dedicate this win to you. You gave me so much help and encouragement when I was living in Cyprus.
Thank you for viewing my web page and may your god bless you all.
