I live near the beautiful city of Bath in the south west of the UK and am lucky to have a good radio location at over 540ft asl and a long garden (by uk cabbage patch standards!). I trained as a teacher and youth worker and managed an outdoor activity centre for a local authority for thirty years.Now retired and more of an operator than technician - a jack of all trades and definitely a master of none!

QSL CARDS - PLEASE NOTE:- I no longer use the Bureau and do NOT wish to receive cards. If you require a card, you must mail direct or use eQSL

Clubs etc

Member of Trowbridge & District ARC, RSGB and Bristol Contest Group. Other interests include The American Civil War, Hill Walking, Birding, and falling asleep in my comfortable chair in the shack. Walking my collie, Oscar (K9/O) sometimes with my handie on the local hills, also takes up a big part of every day

Contesting

Major interest are the UKAC Tuesday night contests, 2m, 70cm, 4m and 6m mostly from home but occasionally portable. Points to Trowbridge & District ARC.Also member of Bristol Contest Group for mostly AFS contests and field day logistics etc.

Foundation (Novice Licence) Training

You may hear my call sign occasionally being used by students (under supervision by me) undertaking their practical training and assessments for the Bath Radio Classes run by Steve Hartley, G0FUW (see QRZ for contact details re training and examinations for Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced)

 

 

HF Mobile (static!)

FT 897 + AT 897 LDG autotuner into a range of Hustler verticals plus various loops, dipoles and verticals designed and engineered by G0AQL.

The North Somerset Coalfield

The area I live in was central to the old, historic North Somerset Coalfield. Reminders of this once thriving industry are everywhere - the last coal being brought to the surface in 1973 with the written record going back to the 13th century. It is even possible that the Romans used it in their temple to Minerva in the nearby city of Bath. My QSL card depicts local mining in the 19th century

 

Thanks for looking me up.
