Ham Member Lookups: 5701

Hi my name is Peter, born York England October 1943. My other hobbies apart from Ham radio are building live steam railway locomotives, playing electronic organs andWurlitzer theatre organs.

 

The photo is of myself and the 3" scale Burrell traction engine, a full working steam model I built.

 

Returning to Ham radio, it was around 1967 I first became a short wave listener and received my licence in February 1970 as G3ZDI. I had an AR88D RX and built a 3 valve 80-160M AM-CW transmitter based on the old Codar AT5. I worked all the UK Counties, worked the States, Africa and the West Indies plus most European countries that could operate 160M. At that time you were only allowed 10 watts DC input on 160 due to it being a shared band by other services. I also had a Swan 500C TX for the HF bands and managed 200 plus countries. I held my G call until 1980 when we uptstickt and came to New Zealand. I received my ZL call in early 1981 and since then up to the present day my QSL confirmations would qulaify me for WAC, WAS, WAZ, DXCCX3+, I need only two countries plus two cards, four in all for the whole lot.

 

My station equipment is antenna TH3 Junior Thunderbird at 30ft, transmit gear, Kenwood TS120, Yaesu FT107, Swan 500CX which has had work done to make it go. My old 500C is now in need of much TLC, .Power is 100 watt only no linears.

 

I will QSL direct - two green stamps plus SAE for return or via BRO. No EQSLs.
