Hello there, thanks for taking a look at my page.
I'm located three miles north of the city of Nottingham, in the town of Arnold. ( WAB = SK54 )
Life is shared with my wife Caroline & our daughter Olivia who was born July 2008.
As for radio; I've been licenced since 1994 but only active on the HF bands since 2004 although, what with work & family, not as active as I'd like to be!
My station comprises of - Icom IC7600 transceiver with either Heil PR781 mic or Pro Set Elite headset & SPE Expert 1K-FA amplifier.
Also in the shack is a Kenwood TS2000 with MC90 mic for VHF/ UHF and back up HF.
Antennas for HF are the Cobwebb: a nest of dipoles for 20 to 10M (see pictures further down the page) which is about 40 feet AGL .
For 80, 40M & 30M a 92' Doublet (aka ZS6BKW) up about 35 feet.
V/UHF: just using an X510 vertical at the moment at about 40 feet.
Operations here are mainly HF SSB also of late been enjoying operating RTTY and PSK31 and also now trying out JT65, JT9 and OLIVIA.
I use Logger32 as my primary logging software to take care of the logbook and is linked to the dx cluster via CC User from VE7CC.
Current awards: DXCC Mixed (200), DXCC Phone (200), DXCC Digital, DXCC 40m, 20m (150), 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m,
WAS - Mixed (only need Delaware for WAS Digital)
QSL is ok via LOTW & EQSL. Paper ok too, via the bureau (very slow and a little unreliable) or direct to above address.
No postage required, just include a self addressed envelope, replies are 100% sent within a couple of days.
Have not received any cards via the bureau since September 2012 as the last batch sent by bureau sub manager (Aug 2013) never reached me.
Chances are if you have sent a bureau card in the last two years I will not have received it.
