Thanks for looking at my page.
I'm a retired Food Industry Quality and Food Safety Manager living in the small village of Thwaite in the heart of the English countryside, approximately 120 Km NNE of London.
I obtained my Amateur Radio license (G3XAP) in November 1967 after many years as a Short Wave Listener.
My early Amateur Radio years were spent on 160 metres where I obtained WAC with a genuine 9 watts. The antenna was an Inverted L with a large number of radials. I still operate on 160 but DX is difficult nowadays due to my restricted space for antennas and the high noise level from nearby power lines.
I am active on all bands from 1.8MHz to 430MHz (including 5MHz).
Rigs are a Yaesu FT-2000D for the HF bands, an Icom IC-910 for 2 metres and 70cms, a Yaesu FT-847 for satellite work, a Yaesu FT920 as a standby rig and a Yaesu VX-8 hand held. I also have 4 vintage rigs - a KW2000E transceiver, a Yaesu FT901DM transceiver, an Eddystone EA12 amateur bands receiver and an Icom IC-R70 general coverage receiver.
My operation is CW, PSK 31, FELD HELL, RTTY, SSTV, JT65, JT9 and SSB. I also operate through the satellites.
Antennas are an inverted L (tuned at its base with an SG-230 automatic tuner), a 10 element Yagi for 2 metres and a 9 element Yagi for 70 cms.
QSL via the Bureau, eQSL or direct. All QSLs received are answered and reports from listeners are always welcome.
