Hi, thanks for visiting my page.
My first introduction to amateur radio was in 1956 as a S.W.L. during the International Geophysical year.This was the year of the peak of cycle 19, with many sunspots and spectacular aurorae over Southern England. I started transmitting first in the 1970s with an aeronautical VHF licence, and with the introduction of C.B. to the UK in 1981. I soon progressed through evening school to gain my VHF amateur licence and the call G6ZRB. In 1984 I passed the Morse examination and was awarded a full licence and call G4ZCS.
My main interest is currently low power DX and home brewed antenna using my Elecraft K3. I am working for IOTA awards, and have the IOTA 300, the Europe and the British Isles certificates. I have been awarded the Scottish Islands "Scotia Award". I am active on PSK 31, I am a member of the PODXS 070 club #266, and the EPC #892. I have worked many Italian Castles and hold the DCI award #285. I regulary work portable from Lighthouse 'Watchet Harbour' ref' ENG- 174, (admiralty no's A5584 & A5584B) and I am a member of the British Amateur radio lighthouseSociety # 235. Having been on the air for over 25 years I am a member of the Radio Amateur Old Timer's Association #2290. I recently joined the CDXC to support its aims.You might also hear me mobile on 70.450 MHz, please give me a call.
I am a registered assessor and tutor for the UK Amateur license examinations, and regulary contribute to Magazines and news letters on technical subjects. Finally, I present illustrated lectures on radio subjects to my local clubs in the Sussex area.
I have recently been experimenting with NVIS antennas on the UK 5 MHz frequencies.The published report gained me the RSGB "Bennett Prize" at the centenery AGM in London in 2013.
My logs are uploaded to ClubLog frequently and LOTW several times a year.
