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 where I hoped I'd be a radio officer on board ship but it didn't happen and I moved to Nottingham in August 1964 to start work with a big UK based radio communication company. 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. The QTH here is over 300' ASL.
I also use an FT817 in the car with mag mount aerials for 40, 20,15 and 10m again mainly on cw.
I have a UK 5Mhz licence and have started to use this band which I find very interesting! The FT817 is widebanded to enable 5Mhz use.
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, The Radio Amateurs Old Timers Association, the RSGB and the Chiltern DX Club.
My WAB (Worked all Britain) square is SK54.
I also subscribe to the Dx Code of Conduct. Check out http://www.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'
