I was first licenced in 1982 as GM6JUK (VHF only) but upgraded to full licence in 1984 and was issued with GM4ZUK. For many years I was mainly QRV as GM4ZUK/P in VHF contests from IO86RW. Since March 2016, I also now hold the short contest call GM4Z.

Small urban gardens did not allow much serious HF activity until I moved to our current home in 2011. I am lucky to have no neighbours and find this QTH particularly good on 160 and 80m. The station consists of a pair of Elecraft K3 with P3 Panadapters, each with an Elecraft KPA500 amplifier. I use simple inverted V dipoles for 160, 80 and 40m with a SteppIR 3 element Yagi for the higher bands.

I still try to be QRV as GM4ZUK/P in many RSGB VHF contests from IO86RW 6m, 4m, 2m, 70cm and 23cm.

I was GJ4ZUK from 1994 to 1996 and again in 2005 with activity almost exclusively on SSB/CW on VHF/UHF.

QSL's direct or via the buro are welcome although I am not an avid QSL collector myself. I am happy to QSL direct with return postage or $2 US.

 

I am currently in the process of getting set up with LOTW but it is taking a while to get all my logs in order.

 

I am married to Louise and we have two young children, George (5) and Rachel (2).

 

Here is a video from 2009 of my 144MHz /P station:-
