Stop Press: In April 2013, due to serious illness of Ann my XYL, we returned to Lincolnshire (near to our daugthers and family) for an indefinite period. I am generally now head cook and bottle w asher and radio time is somewhat restricted, but I will be qrv from G3SCD whenever the opportunity arises.My lovely K3 line gear is still in VK and I have my Icom 746 and my TS 50 as mobile in operation in G.
Always pleased to get e-mails - I always answer - and will arrange skeds on request. QRS if you need some. .
I write this with extreme sadness - Ann, my constant companion,for over 48 years, best friend, Moher of our two children, died from Cancer related problems on June 3rd. this year. Our two "children" now both in their 40's were by her side . Just the day before her 70th birthday the medics dropped the bombshell:. It did not seem possible then but in a very short period noticable deterioration set in and things happened vey fast.
The three of us are left with many happy memories of out life over the years, and these are what keep us going in th circumstances. our life will never be the same again We are fortunate to have each other for support, to face such a situation alone would be very stressful indeed. But many folk do.
Mail can be sent to me via Email (preferred) or Snail Mail.
Both QTHR, for G3SCD and VK3DBD - are on QRZ.com

QSL's - Please do not send them unless I ask or unless you really want one from me. I will always reply to your request for a card, but now storage is becoming a problem and I want enjoy my Ham radio not spend time making and writing cards! But they are all individual with different designs so a little different from most.
