Now retired after a lifetime working as a professional engineer and manager in the UK Electricity Supply Industry.
Operate mostly on CW with some SSB and Data modes. I am a member of FOC, HSC, VHSC, SHSC and the A1 Ops Club. Other radio interests are contesting and home construction. I have recently built the Pic-a-Star all-band 100W SSB/CW transceiver designed by G3XJP and the N2PK Vector Network Analyser (VNA), which is the most useful piece of test gear that I own.
My QTH is the rural village of Bramham, located mid-way between Leeds and York. My WAB Area is SE44 in West Yorkshire.
5BWAZ, 9BDXCC and DXCC Honor Roll CW and Mixed (just need P5)
Previous callsigns: 9G5SW, C56SW, 5B/G3VMW and GD3VMW.
My Special Contest Callsign (SCC) is M2X and is used in most major events such as the RSGB IOTA, ARRL or CQWW contests. All M2X QSOs are automatically confirmed via LoTW. However, if you require a paper card, please QSL your M2X QSOs via Charles M0OXO.
DXpedition team member at C5X, XZ0A, D68C, 5V7A, 9G5VJ, P3F (CQWW CW Contests) and ET3AA.
Equipment is a Yaesu FTdx5000D and Acom 2000A amplifier or alternatively an Elecraft K3/100 and Elecraft KPA-500 amplifier. For the Data modes, I use a Microham micro KEYER II USB interface with MMTTY or MMVARI from Logger 32.
Antennas are a 6-band MW0JZE wideband G3TXQ Hexbeam for 20-6m on a 15m tower, 2 x 20m doublet with separate, switched, balanced tuners for 80m, 40m or 30m and also a 160m Inverted L.
Please QSL via the Bureau, LoTW or Direct with self-addressed envelope and 2 US dollars to cover return postage. Please no IRCs since these are no longer sold in the U.K. and they are increasingly difficult to redeem at my local Post Office.
PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT the QSL Manager for ET3AA. Please do not send me QSL cards for ET3AA QSOs, I am unable to assist.
All QSL cards for ET3AA should now be sent via N2OO.
