I am mainly interested in digital modes PSK, JT65, RTTY and CW. I operate with two wire antennas for HF. One a multi-band antenna aligned NE-SW at a height of 11.5m. This is a 20m dipole with extensions and 40/20m traps and uses parallel resonator wires for 17m, 15m, 12m and 10m. The antenna is 7 band 60m through to 10m requiring only the internal tuner of the FTdx5000. The second antenna is a 160/80/30m trap dipole aligned SE-NW at a height of 11m. I also have a small tower which has a 5 element 6m yagi and either a 5 element 4m OWL yagi, 9 element 2m OWL yagi, 19 element 70cm or 35 element 23cm antenna used in UKAC contests. Out of contest time the tower normaly has a 10 element vertically polarised 2m yagi for UK contacts.
I used the callsign GO8MIA to celebrate the London Olympics 2012 between 21st July and 9th Septemember 2012.
My previous QTH before 20/5/2011 was in grid square IO91ij.
