I am active on all HF- UHF bands using assorted antenna from the trusty G5RV through to mega longwires, quads and verticals in fact if it looks like it will radiate then ill experiment with it. I have also just recently found data modes (i know im slow and have been preoccupied with chasing the dx on ssb ) and am rapidly getting hooked on them as well, so dont be surprised if you see my call on PSK31, ROS SSTV both analogue and digital, or any of the many data modes available to us

Equipment used:-

Icom IC7400, Yeasu FT902dm, Alinco DR635

Antenna = 70ft long end fed for HF. 50mhz, 10, 12, 17, 15 and 20mtr vertical, Vhf/Uhf = Vertical

My local UHF Repeater is GB3LR , My local VHF Repeater is GB3SR

Locator is jo00at - WAB TQ40. WAB Book number - 19174

GX4WAB 17/7/2012

We had a brillaint day as one of the GX4WAB stations following the olympic torch around the UK on the 17th of july 2012, thank you to the Worked all Britain Group for Inviting us to take part.

We turned up on site at Firle Beacon (TQ40) at 7am on the day to setup the station which was fairly uneventful other than a couple of wind related issues when errecting the operating tent however by 9am we were ready to open the station and start working, To be honest even though i had been working the various stations during the event to get the gold award myself i wasnt really prepaired for the wall of noise on 7.160 after getting a radio check from a local station to make sure no there were no RF feedback issues, i dropped carrier and oh my god the noise was incredible and stayed that way nearly all day from 09:18 to 20:15.

In total we worked 483 stations sadly missing the 500 mark but things were starting to get a little dangerous due to the mist coming down and the power cables from the generator getting extremely wet, also the radio had a little fit and shut itself down at the end, anyway a great day and it was nice to be at the sharp end of a pileup for a change which is not somethng that happens to G stations very often.

The station consisted of :-

Radios:-

IC7400 for hf

IC706mk11G for vhf

Antenna:-

G5RV at 40 ft and 5 ele beam for 2

As a side note i was surprised and disapointed that we only worked 3 stations on vhf however there could have been many reasons for the lack of activity from conditions to antenna failure.

My personal thanks go out to everyone envolved without you guys this event just wouldnt have happened.

G7VAE (James), 2E0SCR (Chris), 2E0HLB (Hazel), 2E0MDO (Edmund), G4PZU (Frank), G0TJH (Ian), M3EXF (Joe), M1RPY (Roger), M0JOA (Joan), M6JTJ (John), G4PAP (Peter), G0SIF (Kerry) and of course Lee (M3EXF's partner and my son Kieran also a huge thank you to the local lads for coming up and supporting us throughout the day.

THANK YOU ALL
