Thank you for looking me up on QRZ.COM. I was licenced in early 1983 with the callsign G6SZC when I lived in Dorset in the south of England. (Served 26 years with the Royal Corps of Signals 1964 - 1990 as a Radio Engineer) Later in 1983 I obtained my Class A full licence and became G4UGB. Moved to Scotland in 1990 when I became a 'civilian' with a new job with Strathclyde Police, and became GM4UGB. At that time, I was very active on HF (mainly CW and data modes like Amtor between 1983 and 1999), but in 1999 I quit Amateur Radio altogether for various reasons. Myself and my XYL moved back south to England in early 2014 when I retired after 24 years with Strathclyde Police. I found I had a bit of spare time on my hands and took up the hobby again. Purchased an Icom IC-7300 - an amazing little transceiver. It's good to be back on HF again but with a small garden and somewhat restricted space - I've managed to install an 80 metre Carolina Windom (severely dog-legged to fit it into the available real estate) which seems to perform reasonably OK. Put up a 10 metre mast last year (2015) with a new Ultrabeam MX-20 and a 4 metre/6 metre beam up there with a Yaesu G1000-DXC rotator. Hope to work you on the HF (or VHF) bands at some time in the future !!
I'm also a member of RSARS (Royal Signals Amateur Radio Society) with membership number 2002 and a member of FISTS with membership number 2830.
I use LOTW - so will confirm QSO's when I upload my logbook - usually once a week.
I also use E-QSL, HRDLog, and QRZCQ.
PLEASE note that I do not QSL direct due to the high costs of international postage here in the UK. But I do use the QSL Bureau if you need or want a QSL card.
But please - if you do QSL me direct, include the necessary postage costs with any of the following:
1: Stamped addressed envelope
2 : Addressed envelope with $1 for QSL in Europe, and $2 for QSL outside of Europe.
However - in the spirit of the hobby, all direct QSL's (even those received without return postage) will always be acknowledged. If you take the trouble and expense of posting me a QSL card then I am honour bound to return the goodwill involved. I am also quite however happy to send you a QSL card via e-mail attachment if you wish !! (Or via the Bureau)
