Licensed Sept 1970
Merchant Marine Radio Officer 1971 - 78
Radio Officer at Portishead Radio / GKA 1978 - 1988
1988 - 1998 worked in radio communications research.
1998 medically retired after a severe nervous breakdown, still under medication and treatment, many out there know what this is like, a few ignorant souls think such things just respond to making yourself feel better, I wish it were so,
Main operating interest HF CW, rag chewing, DXing, Contests, QRP... I welcome QSOs with new or improving CW ops and will always QRS to the level you require. I may be QRV with hand key, bug key, sideswiper, electronic key or keyboard. I like to keep the traditions of mechanical keys on the air as often as possible. I find a good ragchew much more rewarding than a new country in the log.
QTH is located in a very smally village near the town of Tiverton in the county of Devon in Southwest England. LOC IO80EV WAB SS81. July 22nd 2014 : After a year here other stations have found Tiverton tough to copy in QRM n QSB to many stations so will now give QTH as Nr Exeter
Rig is Sommerkamp FT-277ZD normally run at about 80W but drop to 5W if around the QRP frequencies.
Antennas on 25 foot (8 Metre) pole, inverted vee dipoles for 40 and 80M and a home made Carolina type Windom, other wire antennas put up for operation on Top Band also 60M if my rig will go there HI.
