First licenced in 1981 and have operated as GM4MKR for a period of 4 years. Also had a short period (just 5 days) as VQ9BY and VP8BFN.
I mostly operate on cw and sometimes on SSB. Can be found on 6 mtr band during the early summer months.
I enjoy cw contests, but never expect to achieve a high score. Having said that, I do have some pretty bits of paper saying I did well in various contests!
Hardware (software?) at my station consists of a Flex 5000a SDR and some nice black boxes made by Yaesu, various keys, and antennas, all home-brew (2012) are;
12m vert for 80/40m
20 mtr end fed inverted V for 80/40M
