My back garden is only 15' long and 11' wide with an available length of 25' from the rear wall over a ground floor extension but I've become quite adept at getting signals out of physically small aerials.

I'm currently active on 160m to 6m CW, and occasionally SSB, using an FT-950. My HF aerial is a wire about 70 feet long which has to be folded into an 'N' shape to fit into the small space available. Matching is aided by a 9:1 unun. This is far from ideal but allows me to work all bands from a challenging environment. For 6 metres I have a halo in the loft. I usually run 20 watts but have up to 100 watts available if required.

I also operate on 70cm for local chat on FM and DMR from a Hytera MD785.

I've recently re-designed the shack so it actually looks a bit different from the photo below... new pics coming soon!

I operate HF mobile occasionally - on 20m only and with QRP. Current setup is an FT-817 with 5 watts to a Diamond HF20fx antenna. The HF20fx is a very short antenna - about 1.2 metres long - and looks very much like a CB aerial. It's very light and sits securely on a 120 mm magmount. Theory indicates that using a short, base-loaded antenna on a magmount with only 5 watts I would be lucky to work someone a few streets away but in practice this system works far better than expected, as you will know if you've worked me /M.


I also operate occasionally as GW0TVJ from Swansea, South Wales.

I am a member of the Straight Key Century Club (#9547) and FISTS (#15918).

Please Note: I do not routinely QSL. Any cards sent via the bureau will not reach me. If you really need a QSL card from me, please email me to make arrangements.
