I currently operate from 160m to 70cm. I'm mostly on HF CW, chasing new multipliers and confirmations for 10BDXCC - I still need your QSLs please and LOTW for 6m !!). .
I began as an SWL (A-8568) and obtained my G8JCG licence whilst at school and finally the 'class A' call when 16 yrs old. During the late 70's I worked about 320 countries, all on ssb, but then University, Marriage, children etc reduced my activity until the year 2K when moving to a radio friendly QTH allowed more activity again. Unfortunately 8 log books and most of my QSL collection got lost over the years. For some reason I seem to use mostly cw these days -it must be old age! (actually its far superior for DX) however I also enjoy RTTY and SSB.
EA6/G4EZT 2008 has been uploaded to LoTW and 100% of cards sent via theburo.
EA6/G4EZT 2009 had 421 qso's on PSK31, RTTY, SSTV, CW and SSB from JM19OI Cala d'Or.The log is uploaded to LOTW and online on my website where you can request a bureau QSL.
GR4EZT was active 2011.
Current equipment is an IC7700 and the old faithful ageing IC756 with half working display and an ACOM1500. For 4m, 2m (and holidays) I use the FT847 which generates 50W on the 4m band. Antennas consist of a 3 el Steppir for 14-70 MHz (with passive elements giving 4el on 6m and 5 el on 4m), a homemade 20m tall vertical for 160/80/60m (baseloaded for 160m, 1/4 wave 80m, with remote relay switching and tuning) and 4 squares for 30m and 40m. The last G4PZK/G4EZT project was a 1kW SO2R 6 way antenna switch controlled by WiFi or USB with built in power meters. Details are on the G4EZT web site.http://g4ezt.webs.com/, picture below.
If you need a QSL I reply 100%to Direct or Bureau QSLs, all my logs are uploaded to LOTW regularly.

My current QSL.
40m 4 square in the snow Jan 2010, looking West.
40m and 30m 4 Squares
The 60 ft vertical (33ft Ali pole mastplus 30 ft fibreglass pole) in a slight breeze.
On the hill here its always windy! however the antenna has survived undamaged for 5 years (until Nov 2010 when 60 mph gales snapped the fibreglass pole). Rebuilt with switched loading coil half way up and double thickness fibreglass pole.
The rebuilt antenna
The Steppir Antenna with 6 and 4m passive elements, on my 15m telescopic mast. It's beaming East, to the left of the page.
EA6/G4EZT 2008/9 (FT-847, MFJ993,Watson Power-Mite,10m long Doublet at 7m).
My other main hobby is trail running, seen here on the Malvern Hills Nov 2015 above a nice temperature inversion- but no VHF tcvr on me:
END (so far).
