Ham Member Lookups: 17360


Located in IO97, one of the 'rare' squares. Been licenced since the early eighties.

Now semi retired, we bought a motorhome and have started touring some of the places in the UK I always wanted to go to.

Occassionaly I will activate some of the rarer squares time, work and weather permiting.

I live in the village of Inverallochy which is located about 3Km East of Fraserburgh, and 15Km North West of Peterhead on the North East coast of Aberdeenshire , Scotland. My house is located just 50 Metres from the North Sea with nothing between me and the North pole. It is an excellent site in all directions except South, as the ground rises in that direction. I run most VHF-UHF bands from 6 Metres to 3 Centimetres, with the exception of 5.7GHz. I normally operate portable on the higher microwave bands, but still in IO97.

Home antenna's are mounted on a pneumatic tower to a maximum height of 15 metres depending on how windy it is. We have had wind up to 130 Knots (about 200KPH) in the past !.

Presently have 4X11 element yagis for EME on 144MHz. For summer months these are replaced by 50 and 70MHz antennas, both bands with UK maximum power.

Have recently bought a house (our retirement home !) to the North East of Oban (IO76JK) and will be operating from there when time (and diesel) allows.

Have a few work trips to some of the rarer squares in Scotland, especially IO99, IP90, IP80 and possibly IO57. Very weather dependant as to whether I take radio with me but will try to be QRV on at least one band (6 or 4 or 2M)

Please note I will only QSL for direct cards as the QSL Buro does not now work for me. Any cards going to the Buro will not be delivered to me and probably will be put in the QSL managers bin.

Please note I only QSL for EME QSO's, I do not QSL for meteorscatter or tropo QSO's now.

Please, if you QSL direct DO NOT SEND MONEY, just your return address. direct QSL.

Please Note : I do not receive cards via the buro.

Again if you send a card do not send money, I will cover return postage

Please if you have not received a card from me with 2 months of the QSO and you think I should have sent a card then please E-mail me at GM6VXB AT BTINTERNET.COM.I will always send a card for a first QSO or new square.
