Operated from January 25, 2014 until November 30, 2014 as GA4JPZ to mark the Homecoming celebrations and other events in Scotland this year. During this time I had 1,810 QSOs, worked stations in 221 DXCC entities, and had a great time meeting many interesting people. I really cannot think of any bad, or impolite, behaviour I encountered using the GA prefix, and have grown to realise that the number of people in the hobby who behave badly is very small indeed.
If you want a QSL, then I uploaded the GA4JPZ log to LotW already and will try to catch up with direct DX cards asap, plus I will send off all other cards via the bureau over the winter months. If you send me a direct card I will answer direct and would appreciate a contribution to the postage if you can afford it. If you can't, that's OK, I'll answer direct anyway.
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).
Normally QRV from Top Band to six metres. Interested in CW, the DLD, 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 GA4JPZ, GQ4JPZ, 2S4JPZ, GD4JPZ, GJ4JPZ/A, G4JPZ, G4JPZ/W6, G4JPZ/W2, G4JPZ/W0, YV5/N6OET, N6OET/KH6, F0GVO, DJ0ZF, 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).
