My LAST 50 QSO's

Thanks for dropping in on my QRZ entry. If I have just worked you, many thanks for the QSO, doubly so if I was using 3 watts! In the unlikely event that you wish to send me a card, there's no need to send any $$ but a self addressed envelope is appreciated. I am an LoTW user - I upload every day

Sometimes operating QRP with 3 watts PEP (measured on an Alpha 4510 wattmeter) . My QRP QSO Map is further down the page, Currently 145 dxcc entities with 3w (inc. FT/J, ZL, VK, VK9C, FT5Z, VU4, 9U, 9Q, KL7, XT, TN, 5X, FH, OA, VP8, CY0, W6/7, HC8, 7P ) and 36 cq zones. I do not give my callsign as /QRP so please do not log me as such, /QRP is not a valid appendage to any callsign

I enjoy chasing new dxcc on the bands with ssb and rtty, I'm not particularly ruthless in my approach compared to some, I do not request skeds, use dx nets nor use computer morse, so I probably miss out on a few as a result. Everything I work is from my own little house/garden set-up as  I would get absolutely no satisfaction from operating from a club station nor another amateur's station, no matter how impressive it is.

I'm keen but not a 'get in their log at any cost' dx'er :-) If you do skeds, dx nets and/or computer morse, no problem, it's just not my 'thing' for dx chasing. If I miss an extremely rare one it's disappointing but not the end of the world... to me it's about the journey rather than the goal of dxcc honor roll or anything like that.

I favour 17m, 15m and 12m, with 295 dxcc entities on 17m, 299 on 15m, 281 on 12m & 277 on 10m. I have WAZ on 20,17,15, 12 and 10m...after finally getting Zone 2 on 12m!

I stumbled back into radio in Spring 2008 after nearly 20yrs away. I think I was simply 'googling' after some amateur radio discussion on one of the forums I run, and the desire suddenly came back. Having been an SWL for many years up to the early 1990's, It is always good to hear, and great to work, stations I have in my swl logs from my youth, although apologies if I make you feel a little old when I say I used to get home from school in the late 70's and listen to you on 15m laugh

I create/run large internet communities for a living. www.birdforum.net and www.shipsnostalgia.com (plenty of ex merchant R/O's chat here) are just two of them.

 

Equipment currently used: Icom IC-7851, MW0JZE BB Hexbeam @ 14m (47ft). SPE Expert Amplifier (replaced Acom), Heil PR781, Yaesu G-1000DXC, Alpha 4510 Wattmeter. On VHF/UHF Icom ic-7100, Kenwood TS-2000 + RC-2000, Comet GP-9 for 2/70cm and a 40m efhw @ 40ft sloping to 30ft. If you are interested in the wooden shelving i use to house my Icom and other equipment, it's just an Ikea Benno tv stand with casters removed. You can pick these tv cabinet's up for next to nothing on ebay.
