Wainwrights On The Air - G4OBK/P on Cold Pike - Lake District

My ham radio interests have changed over the last 45 years.At present I enjoy portable operation outdoors, working DX on all HF and VHF bands and operating in the occasional contest. I operate on 160m through to 23cm. My preferred mode is CW (Morse Code) but I also use Voice and Datacomms. At the RSGB HF Convention in October 2007 (the year I finally achieved DXCC Honour Roll#1 and a DXCC Challenge score of 2750), I was presented with the RSGB ROTAB Trophy for outstanding and consistent DX work over 25 years. During that period I was RSGB HF Contest champion for five years.

I have operated from the Dodecanese Islands (SV5) in 1998, 1999 (Rhodes) and 2002 (Kos). In 1994 and 2004 I operated from Crete using the callsigns SV9/G4OBK and J42004Q. In 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. I have been QRV several times from the Isle of Man as GD4OBK and GT7OOO. All my logs are on Logbook of The World and in Clublog. Recent contacts I have made are in the window above. You can check if you are in my G4OBK logbook by entering your callsign into the Clublog window.

I am a member of RSGB. I enjoy walking and cycling and my interests come together when I take part in the SOTA (Summits on the Air) Programme and the WOTA Wainwrights On The Air (http://www.wota.org.uk/) Programme. Please read my WOTA Blog at http://wainwrightsontheair.blogspot.com/. I am the Awards Manager for WOTA and the Area Manager for the TW region for SOTA England.

This is the baseplate for my 5 MHz 1/4 wavelength vertical antenna with 40 x 1/4 wavelength radials

470' long Beverage antenna feedpoint - used for receiving 7 Mhz-5 Mhz-3.5 Mhz-1.8 Mhz-MW Broadcast Reception

I have also operated on HF as GM4OBK from South West Scotland over the years, however I am QRT from there now apart from occasional trips over the border to activate SOTA. If you need a QSL for any of my operations please use my address in England or the RSGB Bureau.
