- biographical stuff -
My Amateur Radio interests are portable and mobile operations, building portable antennas and meeting interesting people on the air. I don't do contests or "rubber stamp" QSOs. My main interests outside Amateur Radio are travel, photography history, and the environment. I grew up with 'wireless' and shortwave receivers and had many aerial wires all over my bedroom. Amateur Radio came along later.
My 'old' 1996 Land Rover Discovery is my most important piece of equipment: it takes me to some very interesting photographic and Ham Radio locations. Most of my radio operating is mobile from the Land Rover, or portable using an inverted vee (or elevated GP antenna) mounted on a fishing pole on the back of the Land Rover.
My home territory is near the so-called "Robin Hood City" of Nottingham in the East Midlands region of England. In the summer months I often travel around the UK, especially in Wales (IO72XC, WAB SN74), and in the Lake District (IO84LK, WAB NY20). I participate in "Worked All Britain' (Book No. 19818) but do not actively seek squares myself
I also travel widely in and Europe, usually from a base in West -Vlaanderen, Belgium (JO10TS) - mostly through southern Germany to Austria and northern Italy (Dolomiti).
In the winter I may operate from my "temporary" home station, often with my 'vintage' Icom IC-735.
I am happy to receive and send QSL cards via the bureau. When I am working as GW7HZZ and GM7HZZ, and for non-UK operations, cards should be sent to my normal callsign (G7HZZ).
73 and thanks for visiting
