Updated Photo April 2008.
That's me at the business end of a Rolls Royce Avon Gas Turbine (better known for powering the likes of, the De Havilland Comet Airliner and the most RAF fighters etc of the late 50's and 60's), at the works location in the Yemen, the engine was being changed out and a work colleague took the photo. My job is to keep these babies and their very big brothers turning and burning to keep the Oil coming out of the ground here in the Yemen Deserts, part of the Rub Al Khali, The Empty Quarter, the beach is huge, but the tide went out a few Thousand Million years ago !!!!
Update July 2008.
I hope to be QRV again on 4M (70Mhz) again soon, I dug out the WPO transverter and hooked it up to the FT901, it still works well, could hear the Buxton Beacon on a rubbish dipole, so will be making a smallish 4 Ele Beam up and if I re-configure the small Antenna support pole I have up at the moment, have decided to get back on 4M, hopefully next time home.
