"Please If You Can Take A Moment Out To Confirm Our QSO Via QRZ, LoTW, Bureau or eQSL"

I Upload To LoTW As A Courtesy For Those People Who Use LoTW... 

However I Do Collect eQSL Awards So I Would Very Much Appreciate Your eQSL Confirmation... 



Operator here is Tony, born in 1967, Qth is the City of Lincoln about 110 miles Nth of London.

Licenced Since 2004 but been interested in radio since 1977.

My Amateur Licence is restricted to 10w QRP, so if you hear me please give me a call i would be pleased for any QSO and to

make new friends near and far around the world.



My HomeBrew Console Now Complete, for the time being wink 

Now have a new radio to the shack, the New Icom IC-7300 cool Wow it's a Fantastic Radio.

I thought my IC-7600 was great but the IC-7300 is in a class of it's own, well done Icom.

Now running the Ciro Mazzoni Baby Loop Antenna on a G-1000DXC Rotator.

Results are great, Signals are 3s Units up and the NoiseFloor is only 3-4db on a bad day.

Tuning is Fully Automatic with the Version 2 ATU Unit by I3VHF.

The 6BTV is doing fine but I required something

with a bit more gain and direction with my 10w.

Interested in Building and Repairing Computers and Motorised Satellite TV.

Have now started using Digital Modes and enjoying it so much.

Always nice to learn new things regarding this wonderful hobby.

And I've got a long way to become as knowledgeable as the Pro's.

Been building some Wire Antenna's, my latest being a 40m thr 10m Fan Dipole.

As a AutoCad User I've been putting some ideas to paper regarding a new

project, and that is a CobWeb Antenna to cover the 6 bands 20-17-15-12-10-6m.

I've created what i believe is a 1 off design of a Centre Hub.

Influence has come from the internet but the design is all mine.

Here's a sneak preview below.

Update on my Version of the "CobWebb" Antenna.

My friend Jimmy has Laser some parts for the Centre Hub Section out of 6mm Stainless Steel.

The Round Plate is Tig Welded to a Clamping Channel then U-Bolted to a Support Pole.

Next step is to mount the 1" Stauff Clamps to the Centre Hub Plate when they arrive.

More Pictures To Follow.......


Well Here's My "CobWebb" Up & Running.

Have now managed to work Japan since running the HomeBrew CobWeb



Next Project
