About Me

Hi, and thanks for stopping by... I'm George, and I'm a 26 year old university graduate, with a second class upper division (2:1) undergraduate masters degree (with honours) in Electronic & Electrical Engineering (MEng). I am currently studying for a Ph.D in Electronic & Electrical Engineering, working in the research field of wireless sensor networks - I develop MAC layers and algorithms for network coordination & decentralisation. I also look at energy neutrality in wireless systems.

I was first licensed as 2E1ZZZ in June 2002, when I was aged 13. In June 2003, aged 14, I passed my full licence exam and finally became M1GEO. I held M3PKT for a short while as well as M1GEO, to allow HF use on what was a class B licence.

More about me here.


Typical Portable Setup

Most of my operating is done out portable. The image below shows a typical station in the club's caravan, though when not available it comes out in my small tent. The amp keep's the tent nice and warm!

A typical portable station

The antenna is a homebrew job, designed and built by myself and Dad (G8OCV) a few years back. It is a monoband 3 element yagi, which performs very well. It's pictured below atop of our SCAM12 (ex-British Army pneumatic mast).  We have several sets of elements tuned for 20, 17 and 15 metres, although changing band requires dropping the beam down and swapping out the wire elements.


Interests in Radio

My main interests are in digital modes and VHF/UHF SSB. I run an APRS IGate (M1GEO) as well as having an APRS node setup in my car (M1GEO-7). I run an EchoLink node (M1GEO-L) on UHF and am the repeater keeper for Kelvedon Hatch D-STAR repeater GB7KH.

I also have an interest in WSPR and am active on there as and when time permits. I like designing and building electronic things; radio related or otherwise.

I am most often found on the UKAC contests on Tuesday evenings operating G3XBF/P, or on 40m.

Please feel free to check my website out, it has a bit more about me, about my technical adventures, and some useful information: My Homepage


Other Involvements, Clubs & Events

I hold the callsign G3UCL for University College London. I also hold MB7UCL for my APRS gateway on the university building in central London. I am the club secretary for the Havering & District Amateur Radio Club (G4HRC) as well as member at the Loughton & Epping Forest Amateur Radio Society (G4ONP), the (now defunct) Barking Radio and Electronics Society (G3XBF) and more recently the Camb-Hams (G3PYE).



I collect WAB squares and mine is TQ58. I hold book number 19613 (June 2012).

My QRA locator is JO01cn. IOTA number is EU-005. ITU zone 27. CQ zone 14.

I collect QSL cards (see below).


QSL Information

I am a collector of QSL cards. I appreciate any cards and always reply with a card. Feel free to express a preference of cards from below. I am happy to pay postage back for direct QSLs to M1GEO, sent to the address above  If you're requesting a direct card for another callsign, you may consider making a small donation (not mandatory). If you do decide to send money to help with the cost, Euros are preferable to US dollars, but any currency is welcome.


Recent QSOs


Certificates & Awards

During an industrial secondment from my university to ARM Limited from September to December 2014, I was based in Fulbourn, Cambridge, UK (JO02CE), and regulary attended the Camb-Hambs socials and UKAC evenings as G3PYE/p. When the guys, along with van "Flossie" picked up a couple of certificates, my meagre bit of operating had got my name on the certificates.  Since these are the only certificates I've won in Amateur Radio, I'm making the most of them!
