First licenced in 1977,  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 HF as 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  or Thassos island.

Rigs are, FT1000MP, a brace of TS530S and a TS830S, which I have fully restored and are my favourite radios. An aging TS680s coupled to a modified CB linear gives me 100w on 50mhz. Just finished putting an RTL dongle into a box with an up converter to give me an HF SDR receiver, which is very usefull for setting up rigs, particularly the old hybrids.

On Thassos, an FT847 and another home brewed 2 element moxon for 10m/6m, plus a 40m inverted V dipole which is a perfect match on three bands, 40m, 15m and 6m. Guess I just managed to get the right length of feeder !

UK HF Antennas: Inverted delta loop  full wave on 40m to an SGC Smart Tuner via a short length of open wire line. Homebrewed 2 element moxon rectangle beam for 10m with 2 coupled elements for 6m.

UK V/UHF Antennas: Single 8 element for 2m and an original J Beam Parabeam for 70cm. Used to have the 2m version, sadly long gone, but what a beast, 14 elements of the best. Wish I still had it.....

Oh and a hand reared Blue Fronted Amazon parrot, who is  is now 18 years old and still won't call CQ. !
