51 years of amateur radio !

Hello and thanks for looking me up. I have been G3SEN since July 1963 and you'll usually work me on CW as it's my favourite mode. I learnt morse at a Marine College in the North-East of England where I hoped I'd be a radio officer on board ship but it didn't happen and I moved to Nottingham in Central England aged 19 in August 1964 to start work with a big UK based radio communication company. I kept in touch with my old friends with ham radio. In 2005 I retired from my job as a radio systems engineer working in Public Safety Radio Communications, (Emergency services).

I am usually to be found on 20, 15 & 10m using an IC7400 with 100w which I use with home made 'fence mounted' verticals. On 10m I use a retuned CB 5/8 wave vertical. I'm also on 2m with 100w from the 7400. Aerials are a vertical dipole for local FM and horizontal loft mounted HB9CV on a rotator, for other modes.

I also use an FT817 in the car with mag mount aerials for 40, 20, 15, 10 and 6m mainly on cw.

The FT817 is widebanded to enable 5Mhz use. 5Mhz is now available to all Class A UK licence holders.

With such a simple setup I don't enter contests but you may work or hear me giving out points in most of the 'big' contests.

I'm a member of FISTS #14565.

The Radio Amateurs Old Timers Association #2467.

The RSGB and the Chiltern DX Club.

The Second Class Operators Club #1035.  

The North American QRP CW Club # 6731.

My WAB (Worked all Britain) square is SK54.

I also subscribe to the Dx Code of Conduct. Check out:   http://dx-code.org

I do receive occasional SWL reports which are always welcome and I will always reply, most times direct.

73 and see you 'on the air'
