There are more photos hidden on this web site, but I cannot work out how to get them to show!

Trans Africa 1989-90 UK - Cape Town, 6 month journey through 15 countries. An experience of a lifetime.  But regretfully no radio It was far too complex and indeed risky..

Shack Picture, FL2100Z, Icom 746, K3, FT-221R Icom 2720 Plus Power Meter etc Keys: various straight Keys plus home brew electronic paddle keys. Experiments on going........    Above photo now out od date    K3 and  KAT500 has  taken over!

Member of- FOC, Fists, MEGS, SKCC,  RAOTA, (Uk and VK) WIA, CTC  RSGB..

First Licensed in 1963, in England, as G3SCD and I have now been a member of the RSGB for  over 50 years.

My UK call is retained, and activated from time to time. -Most English Summers and  since events (below) have changed my situation, much more time in England each year now G3SCD will be active for at least 3/4 of the year

 I am NOT a member of the WIA buro any more, so any cards ( if you feel the need,) should be sent via G3SCD


Always pleased to get e-mails - I always answer - and will arrange skeds on request. QRS if you need to.....

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. 2013 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. I wil always do my best to reply.

Both QTHR, for G3SCD and VK3DBD - are on QRZ.com


VK3DBD. P.O. Box 88 Yackandandah, Vic 3749.

G3SCD "Littledale" West Rd, Tetford, Horncastle, LN9 6QP

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 I really do not need to add to my collection.

Photo and info also under QRZ.com - G3SCD.

Main radio interests:, CW ragchews on HF 160-10 but have 2m and 6m too Also enjoy construction, building mobile whips and Morse keys, Very fond of Mobile working, all the better from remote places - And better still in 4WD!

Experiments and new ideas always ongoing. I'm always willing to try a sked with anyone who wants a VK QSO, especially CW, no prob with QRS speed.... Just ask!

Updated Feb  2015,  

I will be QRV again from VK3DBD  about Feb  and return to England again on April 27, The K3 Travels too!
