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
Often operating QRP with 3 watts PEP (measured on an Alpha 4510 wattmeter) . Currently 129 dxcc entities with 3w (inc. ZL, VK, VK9C, FT5Z, 9U, KL7, XT, TN, 5X, FH, OA, VP8, CY0, W6/7, Z8 ) 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

This is a flag counter free zone. Anyone who disrupts the rhythm and flow of a pile-up to ask for the dx to visit his qrz page for a childish flag is effectively a qrm'er..
Notice, just in case my qrz details are used by the unscrupulous: I do not use @gmail, @hotmail @yahoo.com e-mail addresses. I never conduct amateur radio equipment transactions with those outside of the U.K. I haven't a clue about western union money transfers, other than to avoid it like the plague.
I enjoy chasing new dxcc on the bands, 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. 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.
Started dx chasing in January 2009, I reached 200 dxcc on 7-08-10 (now 297 current, 299 total) and I favour 17m, 15m and 12m, with 274 dxcc on 17m, 285 on 15m, 258 on 12m & 265 on 10m. I have WAZ on 20,17,15 and 10m, but desperately seeking 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 many years ago.
Equipment currently used: On HF, Icom IC-7700, MW0JZE BB Hexbeam @ 14m (45ft), It is NOT a Cobwebb (small squared omnidirectional dipole array), it is NOT a Spiderbeam (huge 3 element on each band wire beam), it is a Hexbeam (2 element on each band 20-6m wire beam) and 6.5m (just over 21ft) across point to point.
Acom Amplifier, Heil PR781, Yaesu G-1000DXC, Alpha 4510 Wattmeter, Palstar AT2K, Kenwood HS-5 Headphones. On VHF/UHF Kenwood TS-2000, Comet GP-9.
I'm a keen bird photographer (big lenses and backache!) and dabble a little in aviation photography
