QSL image for G4ATA

All of my logs are uploaded to ClubLog.org, eQSL and LoTW at the end of each day I am operating, even if I only make 1 QSO. I have just recently (yesterday 21st March 2014!) started uploading my log to LoTW. If you need a paper QSL please send direct with a self addressed envelope and 2$ to cover return costs.

Now nearing completion of a homebrew 4-square for 40m to be used in contests from a portable location for contest operations. First "on-air" testing will be the weekend of the RUDX contest and then the CQ WW WPX contest. Please listen out for G4ATA/P before and after the contests and M4D during the contests. More informationhttp://www.4-square.co.uk/m4d/index.html

On air testing of my homebrew 40m 4-square was very successful and I am very happy with it's performance. It's next outing will be 27th - 30th March 2014 for the CQ WW WPX contest 29th & 30th. I will be QRV 27th & 28th as G4ATA/p and during the contest with my SCC (short contest call) M4D.

To all the poor souls that I may have called on CW . My apologies for my poor CW .... but I am trying!!! Tnx for your patiencesmiley

June 2013
Just installed a homebrew Moxon for 15m on the same mast as the 4-ele LFA. No signs of any interaction between the two.

4th October 2012
Worked 171 DXCC on 10m with my 4-ele at just 5m above ground. The 4-ele LFA yagi is now installed on a Tennamast telescopic mast, when it is wound up the antenna is 11m over ground. Bring on the DX! wink More info on my web sitehttp://www.g4ata.co.uk/tennamast/index.html

Friday 26th October 2012 - I was issued with the special contest call sign M4Dwink
July 24th 2012, now running a Yaesu FT-2000smiley

May 24th 2012, I have now worked 110 DXCC on 10m using the antenna below, still only 5m above ground!
February 2012 - 10m 4-ele LFA yagi by InnovAntennas on temporary (5m) mast now operational.

August 2012, G4ATA shack

Very pleased with my result in 2010 CQ WW WPX - Single OP, Single Band, Assisted, 80m..... #1 G station, #2 EU, #2 Worldcool

July 2010 - Moved QTH to Grantham, R.I.P. my 80m 4-square crying, hello "postage stamp" garden sad..... Oh well, life is full of challenges!

2010 ARRL International DX Contest (Phone) - Single Op, Single Band 80m ....... #1 G station, #5 EU, #10 non W/VE...... I just wish I'd worked more than 8 hrs of the contest!smiley

8th - 13th October 2009, operational as JW/G4ATA. All QSL's for my JW QSO's have been sent to the bureau today (26th Feb 2010). For a quicker JWQSL card please send direct for prompt response (2 x green stamps or 1 x IRC).

Date of birth: 15/02/1957 Since 11/12/2013 married for the second time (smiley), two children. Previous callsign: G1UDF. I also have G8DYT - this call will usually be used in contests.

I first started as a SWL in the early 1970's and was first licensed as G1UDF in 1986. My father was also a radio ham and when he passed away in 1989 I decided that it would be nice to take my CW test and get a full class A licence and have his call re-issued to me, so G4ATA was my father's callsign. G8DYT was my father's first class B callsign issued to him in 1970 and I had this callsign re-issued to me for use in contests. My son Martin is also licenced - his call is 2E1FVS. Martin can sometimes be heard operating my station when he wants to work QRO! This also leads to some confusion as sometimes people have me in their log as Martin!!

Station now consists of a Yaesu FT-2000 (& Heil Pro Set Plus), Tokyo Hy-Power HC-2000 atu, Dentron MLA-2500B (running a pair of 3CX400A7's). Antennas - 4-ele LFA yagi for 10m & a homebrew Moxon for 15m @ 11m. I have only been using the FT-2000 since July 24th 2012. Previous rig was a Yaesu FT-1000MP.

Interests: 10m DX, contests (CQ WW, CQ WW WPX & ARRL DX) and looking for W.A.S.
