Ham Member Lookups: 4069

 
About Me
 
Airman, Gliding Instructor, Radio Ham, SCUBA Diver, ex-Rugby player (banned by the Mrs!), Rock Climber, Geek!
 
I got my ham licence in 1994 and was first licenced as G7SWG, then in 1995 I took the morse test and “upgraded” to G0WFV. I am an active member of the RAF Amateur Radio Society (RAFARS No 4662), serving on the council as Serving Members Representative, Field Representative for Lincolnshire and recently took on the duties of QRV Editor (my first issue as editor will be Spring 18!) My interests lie in anything computer/radio related and like to tinker with ham radio related software.
 
I have dabbled in other hobbies/activities over the years gaining various diving and gliding qualifications and occasionally throwing myself off cliffs (whilst attached to a rope!)
 
Working Conditions
 
Curently not active from my home QTH I do take my handheld radios out and about.
 
If you worked me on 2m or 70cm FM, then I will most likely have been using one of the portable or handheld tranceivers I have collected over the years ...
  • Alinco DJ-580
  • Kenwood TH-F7E
  • Kenwood TH-D72A
  • Yaesu FT-817
If you worked me via digital radio then my working conditions were as follows ...
  • DVMega or MMDVM_HS running MMDVMHost and DMRGateway by G4KLX and others (incl. me!)
  • D-STAR rig: Icom ID-31E
  • DMR rig: Connect Systems CS-700
If you worked me mobile from the car then I'll have been using a FT-857 to an Outbacker Stealth or an ATAS-120 (if I can get it to tune!)
 
Other Callsigns
 
I hold the club call G7RAF on behalf of RAFARS and I use it as the area call for Lincolnshire RAFARS.
 
I also hold the personal callsigns ZC4WFV (Sovereign Base Areas of Cyprus) and VP8DOV (Falkland Islands).
 
QSL Details
 
As I am not regularly active, I do not use LOTW but am registered on eQSL for my homecall (not any other callsigns I am licensed to use)  I am unable to QSL via the bureau since I am not an RSGB member nor do I make enough contacts to warrant paying for the service as a non-member.  That said, if you wish to send me a QSL card electronically via the email address above, I am able to reciprocate!  I have received one paper QSL card in 20 years - that's how active I am (or not!)
 
If you are a member of the RNARS, RSARS or RAFARS, you can send me a QSL card via the relevant service society buro.  My RAFARS no is 4662.
 
For VP8DOV/100 contacts from the VP8RAF/100 DXpedition to the Falkland Islands (5-11 Dec 14) please try to QSL via the email address above.
