Welcome to the MØOYG (/PM) QRZ Page


Thanks for looking at my QRZ page. I have been licensed since 2006 as M3OYG then 2EØOYG and finally as MØOYG. I have enjoyed my time going through the different license levels and now have become a registered instructor for the RSGB so I can instruct my local ATC Cadets at 2454 Warbreck Squadron in Amateur and Military radio.


Family

My wife (M6MIJ) and my son (2EØOCC) are active chasers of SOTA in the UK. My wife has over 1000 points for chasing locally FM SOTA activators and is therefore a Shack Sloth. My son was a Cadet Flight Sergeant  in the ATC and has obtained his Communications Badge. He was the 2008 SOTAbeam challenge champion. He has now started a degree course in eletronic engineering at UCLAN and is currently on a years work placement.

ATC

I have been the Radio Officer for just over 6 years at 2454 North Blackpool Squadron (Formally Warbreck Sqn) and during my time there I have taught some wonderful Cadets who have gained many new skills and academic qualifications. Along the way I have had a number of Cadets and adult instructors pass their foundation licenses.

I have also put on a special event station with the help of the Central Lancashire Amateur Radio Club at the Ribble Steam Railway when we celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the Battle Britain under callsign GB2WAR and GB0ATC to commemorate the offical opening of the New Sqn building.


Memberships

I am a member of both the Centre Lancashire Amateur Radio Club (CLARC) and the Real HF Mobile Yahoo group. I enjoy doing special events when I'm able to but unfortunately this often clashes with Air Cadets activities.


Real HF Mobile group

This is a group run by Dave Starkie G4AKC which is dedicated to Pedestrian and Bicycle Mobile operation. I have lots of interest in the area and have built my own trolley with the help of Dave. I can be found on the promenade at Cleveleys just up from the Norbreck Castle Hotel when the weather and time permits.

Home Setup

My set-up at my home QTH I use a Yaesu FT-8900 for FM 2 meters and 70 cms. I use SMBQ 200 MK2 for 2 meters and 70cm. I don't do any HF due to excessive amounts of interference and noise. I take part in a regular net at 19:00 on 145.400 with members of the CLARC and Darwin net.


Pedestrian Mobile

After meeting Dave at a talk he put on for the Thornton Cleveleys Amateur Radio Club (TCARS) I was hooked. How Dave explained his system and the results he had obtained and then seeing his QRZ page it was so inspiring. I even went to visit him on the front and to see for myself. The contacts were amazing contacts to ZL were FM quality long path may I add. Dave then very kindly acted as my mentor as I have no engineering background and as they say the rest is history.


Set-up

My Mark 1 Pedestrian set consists of a sack truck from Maplin with a Yaesu FT-817, KL203 Amplifier, Ground Tuning Unit designed by G4AKC and a LDG Z100 autotuner mounted on it. The antenna used with this is a simple vertical wire with a capacitive hat. It is resonant at 20 meters, but can be used on other bands if required by using the autotuner.

Pictures of my Mark 1 set-up

As you can see from the pictures below my trolley has gone through many design stages along the way. I'm on about mark 4 now, but expect by the end of 2012 to be on mark 24. Hi!
