Ellie my friendEllie


Hi, I live in a small village (West Quantoxhead) high in the  Quantock Hills Somerset, SW England (IO81JE). The area is well known for it's outstanding wild life both flowers and animals together with many breeds of birds. The area is arable and sheep farmed. . Being located 400 ft up I have a good clear take- off for VHF and with plenty of land am able to work all bands HF using mono band and experimental Ae's. I first started Radio in 1953 while in the Army and worked a number of times from ZB1USA while in Malta. My first call sign was ZB1KE, followed by 12 other call signs round the world. I was one of the first G amateurs'  to work from near Chernobyl after the accident. Since then I have worked from South Eastern Russia (R6) The Gambia, Antarctica, Chile, Brazil, Argentina,North Africa, South Africa, USA, Europe, Asia, most with local call signs, but much prefer working from home in the UK. My suffix's have mainly been either EMG or NKZ, where possible obtaining a local call prefix. After having a major open heart operation my long haul travels are over. .After many years being activly involved with S & R, also getting wet with the RNLI. I still keep an  interest in those who spend their lives trying to save others.

If my Liver and White Springer/Collie ( a Sprollie) finds you I will not be far away!

You will find me anywhere on the air but mainly on  17m or 40/80 m either at home or mobile, sometimes 12m or 10m qrp from the kitchen. I much prefer to chat rather than simply exchange numbers. PSK and RTTY are always available.


The radios used at home are a KW 2000 dsp and a KW 480 hx. Each into its own antenna system. Mobil FT-857  dsp.

I never transmit HF when moving unless somebody else is driving so if calling me, give me a chance to park. The mobile antenna is a ATOM screwdriver type unit mounted on the tailgate.

Picture shows my radio tent 600 miles from the South Pole.

Using ICOM 735 100W to work Chile every 6 hrs. 2000 miles +

Daily chores on a good day in Mid Summer (December)

This say's 'NO FOOD GO AWAY'

Possibly the first to ever walk just here at Vinson Massif Base Camp site.
