Hello, thanks for looking at my QRZ page.
I was first licenced in 2009 following an unplanned health related early retirement, upgrading to an Advanced licence in 2011.
A Yaesu FT-950 with a Heil Proset Elite 6 headset is my main HF rig with an Alinco DX-SR8 as my backup HF rig and a FT-7900 for FM in the shack.
I'm a great fan of the FT 857D using it in the shack for vhf/uhf SSB and for mobile HFoperation together with a FT8900 for mobile 10/6/2/70cm FM. I greatly enjoy setting up on an rf quiet hilltop with the 857 and the Buddipole antenna system for portable field day operation. I'm mostly active on HF SSB but am starting to experiment with digital modes, enjoy working 6 meters openings and was very happy to acheive basic DXCC. (now the challenges really start, just over half way to thefull 340 confirmed on SSB. ) I enjoy friendly contesting and collecting QSL cards and I upload to eQSL(AG) and LOTW regularly; if you would like my card please either send a self addressed envelope with yours or a request by email giving QSO details. No return postage,( IRC's green stamps etc) necessary, I am happy to cover return postage costs.
THE FINAL COURTESY OF A QSO IS A QSL!
Barney, a very special Pal, 1995-21/01/2013.
