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 December 2014

No longer roving the deserts of the Middle East, came back to the UK in April 2014, working locally in Lincolnshire, still with Gas Production. No Gas Turbines to look after anymore, nice easy stuff.

Quite active on all bands, playing with WSPR on various bands, have finally got the IC706 in the mobile setup and now working on 40M SSB, 6M, 2M and 70cm mobile. Still fine tuning the setup and trying to overcome the diesel injection hash on the HF bands....

Am sometimes QRV on 2M FSK144 Meteor Scatter, also JT65 modes on 2M, 4M setup is up and working with 4CX250B Linear in service again, the Transistor device, although drew loads of Collector current, did not produce much RF !!! Just a lot of heat....

Sometime in the next year, I do hope to get the Tower back up and do some more operating.

73 Derek G8ECI.
