Other calls: N6OET; ex-DJ0ZF.
Took the exam in Munich in 1979 and received my first call, DJ0ZF, which I kept until 1996 when I returned to the UK (including a 9-year break from 1981-1990 in California).
Spent almost a year from August 2010 until July 2011 in Abu Dhabi, where I was unable to receive a licence due to the length of time their security people took to clear me (reasons unclear, but apparently this is not unusual).
Normally QRV from Top Band to six metres. Interested in CW, the DLD and QSOs in German and Russian, but also enjoy SSB, DXing, satellites (although not right now because of antenna problems), and a bit of digimode working using the RIGblaster pro (especially Feldhell).
Have also operated as GQ4JPZ, 2S4JPZ, GA4JPZ, GD4JPZ, GJ4JPZ/A, G4JPZ, G4JPZ/W6, G4JPZ/W2, G4JPZ/W0, YV/N6OET, N6OET/KH6, F0GVO, DJ0ZF/OE, EA8/GM4JPZ, CT1/GM4JPZ, DJ0ZF/HB9.
I originally started off in amateur radio as an SWL when I was ten years old, in 1957. As a member of the RSGB back then (A2007) and the International Short Wave League (GM8793), I avidly collected QSL cards from all over the world. Every card was a thrill, no matter whether local, European, or DX.
Any SWL who hears me in any mode and wishes to send a report should go ahead and send me a QSL card, as I will definitely answer all cards received (direct if received direct).
