52 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 back in the north-east 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 cw using an IC7400 with 100w which I use with home made 'fence mounted' verticals. A recent addition is an SB2000 data interface box which gives me data modes using Ham Radio Deluxe. I'm a big believer in vertical aerials and the 'Kiss' technique, (Keep it Simple). I'm also on 2m with up to 100w from the 7400. Aerials are a vertical dipole for local FM and horizontal loft mounted HB9CV on a rotator, for other modes. I have an antenna (of sorts...a horizontal dipole) which is used occasionally on 50Mhz. My QTH is over 300' (100m) asl.

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 Radio Society of Great Britain.

The Chiltern DX Club. CDXC

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

Also occasional holiday operation as G3SEN/P, GW3SEN/P and G3SEN/M.

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

If you know me or remember me from the past, particularly any ex members of South Shields and District Radio Club, G3DDI, please get in touch. It would be great to hear from you.

73 and see you 'on the air'
