Designer of wire loop antennas for hf and vhf. First licensed in 1968 as G8BLI, vhf only permit. Upgraded to G4HOL in 1978. Was also issued with ZB2HV for a short stay in Gibraltar. I am a life member of the Royal Signals Amateur Radio Society, having qualified to join as an Army reservist in a signal squadron, back in the seventies. Now active 160M to 70cm with a "shack in a box" FT-847. As back-up I use a Ten Tec Scout 555, which pokes out just 50 Watts. This rig runs on 160, 80, 40 and 20 Metres and is a menu free simple rig, an absolute joy to use ! Also have a separate 4 Metre rig: AKD 4001, 25 W FM. I am active on 5MHz, which I am glad to see has been launched as a trial allocation in Spain. Since Spain is my chosen retirement goal, the fun will continue seamlessly. I encourage new blood to develop this fantastic hobby at every opportunity, and trust that readers of this will do the same. Since July 2014, operations at Liskeard in England have come to an end. My new location is in the Almeria province of Spain. The temporary callsign is EA7/G4HOL. In due course I will apply for a Spanish full licence. UPDATE. 22 Feb 2015: My licence application for a full Spanish licence is being processed now by the Spanish PTT. When it arrives, it will supersede G4HOL and EA7/G4HOL callsigns. This change reflects a permanent residency in Spain.
