First licenced in 1977 as G8GTD constructing most of my equipment and playing with everything from 10gHz to early packet radio on 2m. A great time ! Now mainly use this call from the UK on 6 metres and HFas qth is too poor for V/UHF.
I also hold a class A callsign G0UOV which I use both from the UK and Thassos Island, Greece,EU174 using SV8/G0UOV .
Always happy to give you a report from the UK on HF or Thassos island on 2,6, or 10metres.
Rigs are, FT1000MP, FT847 and a brace of TS530s, my favourite radios.
Antennas: Doublet tuned with Smart tuner and homebrewed 2 element moxon rectangle for 10m with 2 coupled elements for 6m.
Single 8 element for 2m and an original J Beam Parabeam for 70cm.
Hand reared Blue Fronted Amazon is now 15 years old and still won't call CQ. !
