G6NHU Log Search
I was licenced in 1982 at the age of fifteen and have been active and enthusiastic about the hobby ever since.
My station consists of a Kenwood TS-590S and a broadband Hexbeam designed by G3TXQ and built by MW0JZE at 35' AGL for the six bands between 20m and 6m with an east-west doublet sloping from 30ft to 20ft for the LF bands (maximum 100w through an SGC Smartuner). I also have a Sirio Gain Master vertical for use on 10m and 12m. My station is equipped with an Acom 1000 amplifier to give me 400 watts output.
In October 2011 I sat and passed the FCC Technician and General class examinations at the RSGB Convention and was issued KB3WPE.
I'm an avid DXCC chaser and always looking to work new countries.
My main interest is data communications and I use fldigi with a direct connection from the computer to the Kenwood TS-590S with no additional interface. I'm very active during data contests.
I like receiving QSL cards but the bureau system is very slow. If you send me a card via the bureau then I will reply the same way. However, if you want to receive my card quicker than through the bureau then you're welcome to send me a QSL card direct. I will happily send you a card back at no cost. All you need to do is send me a card with a self addressed envelope. I don't want any cash, stamps or IRCs from you.
All my QSOs are uploaded to LoTW regularly and I also upload my log to ClubLog. I no longer use eQSL.
I am happy to receive SWL reports but please make sure they contain enough detail to be useful. Please list the exact frequency you heard me along with the callsign of the station I was working and the precise time in GMT (UTC). If I was calling CQ and working multiple stations then please list the callsigns of two of them. It would also be useful for you to list your equipment, specifically the radio and aerial.
A report simply saying "I heard you on 40m on the 2nd April 2012" is useless.
GO6NHU was my special callsign to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics. All QSOs have been uploaded to LoTW. QSL cards are welcome, either direct or via the bureau. I had 1,000 cards printed for GO6NHU and want to give them out! When sending direct, please ensure you enclose a self addressed envelope. No cash, IRCs or stamps are required.
In 2011 I managed to successfully complete my project to have at least one QSO per day (hence "QSO365"), there is a website/blog dedicated to this project which you can access by clicking on the image above.
Since the QSO365 project was completed, the site is now my regular amateur radio blog.
I support the DX Code of Conduct and am a member of the Chiltern DX Club.
