Hello, thanks for looking me up,
please note that when not in the UK, I use my Dutch call PA3BHF, and currently
I am frequently travelling to the USA, signing W4/PA3BHF
WAB square: SU66 - WAB Book nr 20246 (See http://wab.intermip.net/Introduction.php for info about Worked All Britain)
SOTA Chaser and SOTA Activator (when I have a chance) (http://www.sota.org.uk)
Recently used callsigns:
- M0MPM - MW0MPM - PA3BHF - W1/PA3BHF - W4/PA3BHF - MO0MPM - MQ0MPM - MV0MPM
in July 2014: LA/PA3BHF - OH/PA3BHF
Spring 2015: DL/PA3BHF in Munich
Licensed since 1979 first as PE1DFE in The Netherlands.
Briefly held G5MPM during a holiday in the UK in 1979
Passed the morse test in 1980 and got PA3BHF in The Netherlands.
From 2010 M0MPM in the UK, and PA3BHF when not in the UK.
Between May and 10 June 2012 British stations were allowed to use a special prefix with the letter Q to celibrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.
During this period my call was MQ0MPM
From 21 July till 9 Sept 2012 I was using the call MO0MPM (Mike Oscar zero Mike Papa Mike) during the Olympic Games in London and the UK.
In 2013 to celebrate the 100 aniversity of the RSGB, the prefix MV was available in July and I made a few contacts as MV0MPM
Other prefixes used (but that was all last century): PE1DFE/LX, LX/PA3BHF, G0/PA3BHF, LA/PA3BHF (1993-1999 Oslo area),
Operated GX4WAB on 11 July 2012.
This is my VHF setup and the home-made 80m LSB MKARS - an excellent project and success almost guaranteed!
See www.radio-kits.co.uk and the yahoo group:http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/mkars80/
Amazing what a 5Wtts tranceiver can do with a decent aerial.
Here's the HF setup. I enjoy getting back into CW, after a 20 year hiatus! Just trying to get the speed back up ...
Antenna is a 26m long inverted 'L', between 2 trees, at about 9 mtrs above the ground.
I like contests, both HF and VHF, and every mode. Not to spent full time on it, but just see what I can work, try my software - I wrote my own logging program
For portable work I have a FT817nd 5w HF/VHF/UHF allbander, with an allband whip and simple dipole. That's what I use going /p on my business trips.
I'm also lucky enough the be a member of the multiple award winning local amateur radio club RADARC, which turned 80 years old this year 2014 (founded in 1934)
