I was first licensed in 1979 as GI4ISJ. I moved to G land in August 1980 where I've remained for the majority of the time.

On moving to the mainland I was confronted with difficult operating conditions due to lack of antenna space and TVI issues when running QRO.

That was the impetus (and my love of construction) that started me on the road to QRP.

I have operated QRP exclusively since 1984 when I parted with my beloved FT101ZD.

I drifted away from the hobby for a couple of years, but a tour to Hong Kong rekindled my interest.

I operated as VS6WD for the best part of 3 years firstly using a borrowed Heathkit HW8 until I finished building my HW9.

At the same time I built a multi band SSB transceiver for 20,15 and 10M. Output of 20W PEP. I made 2 contacts with that before returning to CW!

A return to the UK and new surroundings and family life meant that I drifted sporadically in and out of the hobby.

In 2010 I picked up a Yeasu FT7 in need of repair for £20 and soon had that on the air running 10W.

A desire to have something smaller, lighter and more CW orientated to operate from my boat led me to Steve Webber's ATS range of transceivers.

I managed to purchase a kit for the ATS 4b in November 2011 and it became my my main base station rig until I received my new Elecraft KX3 which arrived 01/09/12.

Armed with a portable set of KD1JV ATS4 and MTR I started activating and chasing SOTA summits In January 2012
