QSL image for G4IIY

If you want to check your call in my log, http://www.clublog.org/logsearch/g4iiy

I live in an extremely exposed part of north Cumbria about 2km from Hadrian's Wall.  Given the extreme winds that we often have here, I decided not to put up any HF beams.  Instead, I use dipoles on 40m and 20m through to 10m.  The dipoles are strung between a couple of 15m masts.  My 30m and 80m aerials are simple quarterwave groundplanes and there is an inverted L (60 feet or 20m vertical section) for 160m.  The aerials are sited on a damp, peat-based soil.  I currently have about 30 quarterwave radials under the 80/160m aerials, but the plan is to add to those over time.

There are currently six rx beverages in place; 60 degrees (at 300m in length); 240 degrees (300m); north & south beverages both 150m; and NW/SE beverages also of about 150m. I also have four EWEs, which are essential when the nearby HV power lines are generating noise.  The EWEs don't seem to be affected in the same way that the beverages are.

Main interests: HF (160m - 10m) DX and CW, particularly contesting; collecting QSLs (for award purposes).
