The photograph shows from left to right: My brother Mike, GU4EON, my father Bill GU3NDX, (now SK) my mother Leonie (also now SK) and myself Dick GU4CHY

I was first licensed as GC8DCO at age 16. Became GC4CHY (then GU4CHY) in 1973. Active between 1973 and 1987 when I went QRT due to change of QTH, and developing my wine importing business. Active in CQWW CW and hold GU CW record for 10. FOC number 1855 (ex-1388). Became QRV again late 2002 with FT817 and Yaesu FT1000MP Mk V and Acom 1000 linear. Have recently bought the Kenwood TS590s, which is proving an excellent CW rig and is used with an Expert 1K-FA amplifier. Have just bought an Elecraft K3 which I am still learning to drive!

Enjoy playing with CW paddles and I am trying to build a small collection. Should you have a twin paddle that you wish to sell, please drop me an e-mail.

My collection consists of Brown Bros BTL-A, N2DAN Mercury (original), M0AGA HCD Chevron, Schurr Profi-2, Begali Magnetic Classic, March R3A,Vibroplex ZN Special, Samson ETM 5C, G3KHZ, Vidi by ZS1EL, and a N3ZN single paddle. All of them are used on the air from time to time though my standby paddles are the Chevron and N2DAN.

Using a SteppIr SmallIR with loading coils for 40 and 30, which works very well (3 ele Trident yagi on 6). Planning restrictions stop me erecting a tower, but I have an elevated QTH very close to the sea. Use 99% CW and enjoy 10,15 and 20 most of all. Recently discovered the joys of 6m. I am member of UK Six Metre Group

My QSL manager is NOT N6RA, I do not have a manager. PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO A BACKLOG OF BUREAU QSLS I MUCH PREFER DIRECT QSLS WHICH I TRY TO TURN AROUND WITHIN 48 HOURS. I am several years behind with my bureau QSLS.

Please note too that we cannot use UK stamps in GU, nor is it possible to redeem IRCs any more- please send "green stamps" for return QSLs.

During April 2004 I was a CW operator with the 7Q7MM DXpedition - see http://malawi.g4axx.com/I am also member of GU8D IOTA contest group and was an op at G5W in 2006 CQWW CW and at GJ2A in 2007 CQWW CW.

I am a member too of the Castel Contest Club (myself, GU4EON and GU4YOX!) and enter NFD most years under GU4YOX/P
