I am active on all HF bands from home using Icom IC775DSP and doublet antenna (open ladder feeder) at 12.7m AGL. I operate HF portable with Yaesu FT-857D, a mutiple dipole for 80m/40m/20m and a SOTApole. I have a number of VHF/UHF handies and some home-brew equipment. I enjoy talking to all radio amateurs, DX or local! If we have had a QSO, please QSL via www.eQSL.cc or via the Bureau. I will also acknowledge contacts via the QRZ logbook.
Here is my new shack, completed December 2014
Top shelf: Domestic hi-fi for when the bands are shut, 2 x Yaesu FT290R, 30W Microwave Modules VHF amplifier, Kenwood TH-F7 dual band handie.
Middle shelf: Twisted pair, Kenwood R-600 general coverage receiver, Icom SP-21 speaker, prototype syllabic intelligent squelch for HF Gateway, weather station.
Table: MFJ-989C 3kW Versa Tuner V (note the 450 ohm balanced feeder going straight through the brick wall, the VHF/UHF coaxes and heavy earth braid also exit straight through the wall out of view), Icom IC775DSP, station laptop showing Hack Green Web SDR, and finally something French and fine to celebrate each new contact!
Out of view is the US Maritime Commission 'radio room' clock, showing the Silent Periods for listening for distress calls.
I support amateur radio helping in emergencies. I am a member of the international team GEM www.gem-int.org and RAYNET in the UK.
I am a member of the WORKED ALL BRITAIN (WAB) http://wab.intermip.net/default.php awards scheme. The idea is to talk to amateurs in every 10km square of the British Isles. My WAB square is TL34 and my book numbers are 2923 and 20415.
I have a 'Special Research Permit' to operate an HF Gateway to VoIP in the UK. This is primarily intended for emergency communications support. You can read all about the Gateway and its use of speech-recognition intelligent squelch on HF at https://sites.google.com/site/gatewayhf/
My QSL card shows my other hobby, a classic Panther Lima Mk2, one of only 300 made.
I'm part of a team that reads the RSGB News bulletin on Sundays using callsign GB2RS.
Sunday 5.4035MHz USB 1600 UK time and 1.9900MHz LSB 2130 UK time.
I am based in London but working in different locations every day. I have also operated in ZS10, PY1, 5X, Z2, F, EA6, W4, W6, HS8, 9Y, I4, 9V, 6Y, ZL, VK, 5Y, CN, VU, EM, SP, J49, AP, JA, KH6, KP4, HB9, OE, 5B, VR2.
For example, I operated as ZS10/G4HPE during the Football World Cup 2010 in South Africa while setting up the broadcast systems there.
If you have not received a QSL card from my ZS10 operation, please send me your card direct and I will send my QSL card to you.
No-one complains about the TVI just yet!
Thank you to everyone that worked me during the June 2012 celebrations. All QSL cards have now been sent via the bureau.
It was great operating the special callsign during the London Olympics 2012. All QSL cards have now been sent via the bureau.
