Hello from the Orkney Islands !
Orkney is highlighted in red below - located off the north coast of Scotland.
I was first licenced as GM7TMT at 16 years old in 1994 and upgraded to full Class A licence in 2001 after taking the UK CW exam. Current set up comprises a Kenwood TS-590 and a 8 band vertical over an extensive ground plane of 120 radials, which works very well 80m - 10m. I currently only operate on SSB and CW and only ever run 100w or less.
Main focus at the moment is improving the station and improving my CW, as time allows. Both of these leave me plenty scope.
I still like paper QSL cards and am happy to receive them. I generally only send out cards in reply to cards I receive. This is because I find an increasing amount of hams who are not interested in paper cards anymore, so I only send them where they are wanted. QSL Direct is best if you want a fast and guaranteed card. I do use the buro but this route will take months, if not years. Please include SAE with any direct cards - green stamp not necessary. I also upload my log to LOTW on a regular basis.
