Located in the small farming villages of Corse and Staunton, in the NW corner of Gloucestershire close to the Malvern Hills. The Gloucestershire-Worcestershire border runs through the top corner of the property. Surrounded by open countryside on all sides, low noise QTH so excellent location for ham radio.

  • 6m was my main band for many years and is still my favourite, I have been active on 6m for 30 years and 3 solar maximum
  • I enjoy relaxed contesting and am a member of G9V / M0VSQ Vulture Squadron Contest Group

QSL Policy

We are now well into the 21st Century so it is no longer necessary to confirm every QSO with a paper QSL card. If the QSO is in your log and mine then it is complete, no need to send a card. I keep a small number of cards for those special QSOs and am happy to QSL direct.

  • All QSOs uploaded to LoTW regularly
  • No eQSL
  • Buro only if you really need, it is very very slow

Current set-up: Hexbeam for HF plus 2m yagi underneath, plus verticals for the low bands.

It pays to have a good take-off, here is the view East over to Europe, Russia, Japan. This take-off and a low rural noise floor makes a huge difference to DXing. The rainbow is often there after big rain storms.
