Hello and welcome to my page.

 

My interest in amateur radio started in the 1960's, when I visited my uncle, Alan Haycock (GD2HCX) and saw him operating on topband. I was hooked. I bought various receivers, including ex-military sets, and listened with great interest. Then, in 1981, I took the Radio Amateur's Certificate and had the callsign G6ETH. In 1987, having passed my morse test, I became G0GPH.

 

I was active, mainly on the HF bands on and off over the years, but work always got in the way! Until, at the end of 2014, I retired from teaching. Now I get to play on the radio a lot more, and life is wonderful. smiley

 

Equipment

For HF I use an Icom 7600 and an Acom 1000. The microphone is an Electrovoice RE320, which goes through a Yellowtec VIP1 processor for a bit of compression and I also use it as a noise gate. After that there is Behringer equaliser, and then the audio is fed into the balanced mixer of the 7600.

 

For aerials I have a Hexbeam (made by MW0JZE). The Hexbeam is mounted at the top of a 12 metre Clark Scam Mast, which can be raised and lowered in minutes using a small compressor. 

For VHF/UHF I use an Icom 5100 with a Diamond X50.

Interests

My background is music (classical) and I used to sing in choirs and do some work as a tenor soloist. These days though, I concentrate on playing the piano and accompanying choirs and singers, which I really enjoy.

 

My other interests include: photography, computer programming, gardening, woodworking and holidays in the campervan!

 

Thanks for looking at my page, and I hope to see you on the bands.
