     WAB-SK47 ......... Maidenhead IO93IF..//.picture my 600m loading coil

The ant is 50metre long wire at 13m high.5ele for 6mtrs.Mosley trap dipole for 20/15/10.The antenna for 70cms is now a 21ele F9FT . 

I became G8AVC in 1966 and Corporate Member of RSGB that June.Those days, Class B operators were resricted to UHF 432MHZ and above,telephony only You could not practice CW..live TX on the air !.Or we the Jaits would have done.
A year later, B licencees were allocated all frequencies 144 mhz and above, still telephony only.
In march 1971 I was runner up in the 144/432 mhz "Fixed Station Contest".
To progress to the HF bands one had to pass the Post Office Morse Test at 12 WPM which, in my case, entailed a trek to Humber Radio Station at Trusthorpe Lincs. Having passed the test,I was allocated the callsign G4AGE in 1973. I did have visits from the Sheffield Post office with regard to cross band operation from 2mtrs to top band !! me on the 160mtrs TX half.May of '73 saw the HF Telephony contest to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of the London Wireless Club/RSGB whereon I became the proud recipient of a "Diamond Jubilee Contest Certificate".
August 1974 brought the prestigious "Two Metre Senior Award" (60 UK counties and 15 Countries on the 144 Band) recording me as, "The first holder of of a G4-plus-3 licence to secure this award"!In August 1976 I was runner-up in the 70mhz Open Contest, eventually recieving the said certificate in April 1977!

July 1977 brought me the "Supreme Award" for 4 meters and Down.Number 18
This was only issued to holders of 70mhz,144mhz and 432mhz senior award certificates.I recieved my "Worked all Continents IARU Certificate in February 1978.
Like many of my age I am lucky that the NHS, in Sheffield Northern General, did a quad bypass operation(Oct 2012)for heart troubles.It is a slow recovery but getting better month by month. Just a few days past one year now!

Working on a TX for 472khz at the mo.(TX finished now 60watts out (Zuma kit)) Not for the older person unless good eyesight and steady hand.I finished the Juma a year ago it is a good transvertor for 472kcs. I get 60 watts out .it is easy to leave it in beacon mode, it has internal memory for your message.


The 1980 shack at 1 High St Bolsover.
