I am GQRP Club member 13979 and FISTS member 16579
Active on 160/80/40/30/20 and 6 metre bands with either a dipole or vertical. On 6m from my home QTH I use a ribbon cable "Slim Jim" antenna.
Equipment includes an Elecraft K3 and KPA500 linear with a horizontal dipole for 80/40/20 and a home made temporary vertical for 160/40 and 30. I also operate data modes including Olivia, AMTOR and PACTOR.
My current favourite operating mode is QRP CW on 80 and 40 metres using my home built synthesised transmitter with a home made 10 band receiver, both designs are featured on my web site.
I am also QRV from Torrevieja as EA5/G4AON with a 10 Watt K2 and 30m/20m/15m/10m home made ground plane.
I often operate portable from the Yorkshire Wolds between Hull and York on 6m during the summer months. The setup is usually a TS-480SAT and a home made quad on a 25 foot mast, using either a 2 element or 4 element quad. Building instructions for the quad antennas are available on my web site.
G4AON - IO93PS
EA5/G4AON - IM98PA
The image above left is the ground plane at EA5/G4AON, there are 2 radials per band which are not visible in the image (and not to be confused with the clothes drying line). The image on the right is at my home QTH. Details of multi-band, easy to make, verticals on my web site at: www.astromag.co.uk/vertical
