Firstly I don't collect QSL cards but will reply to any received.

On the air since 1973, I have been active on the HF bands regularly with my main interest being LF band Dxing.

CW is my favourite mode although I have been qrv on Data modes for a number of years.

I had the privilige of making the First UK to Australia (VK6HD) PSK31 contact on 160m back in 2003

A keen interest in antenna construction and testing . Although due to health problems I can

no longer do the amount I used to do. Was forced to retire so more time for radio now.

I have been a keen contester over the years with awards gained in some of the World Wide Contests.

Recently I have been an operator with the GR2HQ IARU contest team

and a guest operator of GB5CC from the Qth of (Chris) GM3WOJ.

Also a member of FOC #1984.

Present set up is an Elecraft K3 tranceiver with a 400w linear amplifier available when needed.

Antennas are a home made CobWeb (nest of dipoles) for 14/18/21/24/28mhz up about 13mtrs.

A Delta Loop for 40m and occasionaly a dipole for 80m, also a top loaded vertical for 160m.

20ft Circumference coax rx loop and an active loop (LZ1AQ) for 160/80m 

A Funcube+SDR receiver on the IF on my K3 gives me a great panadaptor facility.

 Logger32 and DXLabs are my logging software for ham radio use (Highly recommended Freeware)

N1MMLogger+ is my usual contesting software with occasional use of Win-Test.

The Photo is of me (on the right) with Jayne my Xyl and our son Scott (Dr) along with our now deceased 9 yr old rescued racing Greyhound. who's name was Sombra (Shadow).

He raced 32 times and won 8 so not a bad ratio. Wish I had that same ratio in

the contests I enter.. 73
