 Born in Belfast 1955  and was first licensed in May 2000.

 Using a Yaesu FT-897 D , with a SGC MAC-200 as tuner and a SignaLink USB for digital modes.

 Am also interrested in old radios, have and use a Yaesu FT101B which I like very much because if it dosnt work... I can fix it  ! also a receiver from   Rohde+Schwarz EK 07D/2 with a digital  display.

 Antenna for HF is a wide band folded dipole, T2FD, not very high, 4Mtrs above ground, 10Mtrs long, running north-south, no  AMP, bare foot.

  For 80m and below I use the copper guttering arround the house.

 Antenna for 2m is a 7 element Yagi, using an amp with one GI7B.

 New Project is  23cm got a 28 element yagi and will use a transverter 2m/23cm from SG Labs Bulgaria, that should be fun,   just received a 10m/4m transverter from UT5JCW and my winter project will be to fit both transverters into the battery bay of the FT-897D. Will try to fit them so that the 897 can easily be returned to its original state, this picture shows how much room there is in the bay and is only a placement test ! Will update as the project goes on.

 Latest addition to my shack is an Alinco DJ-G7-EG ( 2m, 70cm and 23cm)     Must try it with the 28 element Yagi !

 Its a long way to the top (100) !! gets more difficult as you go on, got 110 countries in my paper log. Maybe I should turn my    dipole so that its runing East-West, or put up a vertical.

Have now bought a vertical !   It is a GAP Titan DX  multi band vertical dipole. Still got to get it up !!

 Please do not send QSL cards via the bureau because I will not get them, eQSL, QRZ.com and direct are OK and will be answered.

All the best, Rick
