Ham Member Lookups: 16122

 

Born 1943. Licensed as G3OLB in September 1960.

QTH: Lived in Bristol area until 1973 then North-East Hampshire area until 1999 except for a year in Levittown, Pennsylvania during 1976. Since 1999 am in a very rural location in East Devon with nearly 5 acres and some tall trees to play antennas!

Interests: CW, DX chasing on 160 and LF bands, contesting, rag-chewing, antennas. Was active some years ago with home brew equipment on 136 & 500 KHz.

Rigs: K3, TS850S, FL2100Z, Titan III. Key: K8RA P-4 Iambic

Antennas: Currently use an inverted 'L' at 90 feet for 160, remotely tuned for 60, 30 and 20. Dipoles for 80, 40, 17 and 15 at 60 feet. 

Mobile: Many years operating mobile on 160 with home brew gear, later a much modified Atlas180 and these days an IC-706 with a set of Hustler whips for caravanning.

Clubs: Member RSGB, FOC, Bristol RSGB Group, Bristol Contest Group, GQRP.

Non-Ham Activities: Gardening - we have a 2 acre garden which keeps us very busy. Dogs - currently have a standard poodle. Lions - member of Honiton & District Lions Club. 

Work: Was MD since 1989 of Telemetry Consultants Limited, representing a number of US companies in the telemetry and instrumentation business.The business is now closed and I'm enjoying retirement.

QSL Policy: In these days of mobile telephones, e-mail and easy world-wide communications, I can see no point in exchanging QSL cards for everyday rag-chewing or contest QSOs. I can understand the desire for cards to confirm an unusual contact, for example a very long distance LF QSO. My QSL policy is therefore to only send cards in response to those who QSL direct and who also include adequate return postage.
