I have not been very active recently due to ill health and hospital visits.
I am on D*Star at the momment. I use DStar gateway, MB6AZ on 144.8125 Mhz simplex. You are welcome to use it but note that it is short range, and covers Whitley Bay town centre. My DCS / CCS DTMF code is G4AZB=2499
My mobile location is normally St Mary's Lighthouse, Whitley Bay IO95gb. English Lighthouse EN-145. The car park at the lighthouse is a quiet RF location. I also operate from home in Whitley Bay town centre, on datausing an old TS-830s. The noise level at home is fairly high.Back on the air after many years..............first licensed in 1970 !! (in the days of valves and tubes), where I used to operate mainly on topband, 1.8 Mhz.
73 s and look forward to contacting you through MB6AZ or HF Mobile
St Mary's Lighthouse
Reached between the tides via a short causeway, St Mary`s has all the fascination of a miniature, part-time island. The lighthouse, completed in 1898 remained operational until 1984 when it was replaced by modern navigational techniques. Since then the lighthouse and former keepers` cottages have been operated as a visitor centre. The surrounding nature reserve contains an area of rockpools, clifftop grassland, a beach and newly created wetland habitats.

My QSL Card (Lighthouse)
1. Via Buro. This is the cheapest and easiest method, but it can take time. I am sent my cards three times a year and there are other delays in the various QSL Buro's. I return Buro cards and am a member of the RSGB. Please be patient with this method, it does work - but it does take time. I have recently been sick, 2014, so have not had time to do much.
2. Direct. Please send your card and a SAE, or IRC'(s) if you are unsure of the return postage. I am a student and cannot therefore subsidise return postage. Cards are always welcome as I chasing DXCC as a Mobile.
3. E Methods. I am up to date on EQSL. Please note that I am usually /M so my call is normally G4AZB/M to get a match on LOTW and EQSL. I have been unwell and unable to mess about on LOTW, a cert has expired!..... The Cert was lost when I re-installed Windows, to much like hard work to re-apply and play NSA style data collection games for a hobby.
QRZ does not easily deal with /M (See below), so please do not complain if my QRZ entries do not contain the /M suffix. I also upload my logs to Clublog and my own website for checking.
Note re /M on QRZ.com - Mobile on qrz.com
I do not think that at the moment there is a way to separate your basic log from your mobile log. I trust that some day the Logbook will allow that but QRZ Owner AA7BQ has yet to address it. Software changes are required.You can add your mobile call as an alias call sign by editing your record. Call page/Detail/Edit Record/callsign-data/add alias. When someone looks up your mobile call it will take them to your primary call page
