Hi thanks for looking at my info.
My name is Richard, and live in Douglas, the capital town of the Isle of Man, in the middle of the Irish Sea at the centre of the British Isles, mid way between England and Ireland.
I was first licensed 14 Feb 1970.
I am mainly active on VHF dx modes looking for tropo, aurora, Es etc, primarily on 144mhz but also have equipment for 6m 4m and 70cm (and the HF bands).
I am trying various different aerials for vhf bands, I try and keep the picture up to date !
The picture shows a 15el yagi for 70cm, 9el PowaBeam for 144mhz,
2m beam now has a DG8 (GM3SEK/RSGB RadCom+) masthead pre-amp attached
4ele Jaybeam for 70mhz must be 40 years old but still performs well
the 50MHz Moxon on the top is presently down and replaced with triband vertical 50/144/432,
the moxon will be re-built and should be up again for the Es season
70cm is a 18ele JayBeam Parabeam now with masthead pre-amp added (G0MRF 70-23 ATF54143 ePHEMT)
More information on my weebly website and blog
also recording of a superb aurora on 144mhz in 1982
