I am now 73 and I retired from the Sales/ marketing dept of the Racal Group in 1999 when I was Latin America Regional Director. I have been licenced since 1964 and I am active on 160 to 6m on SSB, CW and RTTY. I have worked 334 dxcc entities all of which are now confirmed. I have been on 6m since February 1986 now with 193 confirmed on the band. I enjoy occasional contest operation on the HF bands and 6m. I am an active member of the Newbury and District ARC, the RSGB, the Chilton DX Club and the UK Six Metre Group. I live in woodland about 60m west of London which hides my antennas so I easily got permission to erect the two 60ft towers.

I am fortunate to have a dx qth in Mexico which I visit a couple of times a year and operate as XE1/G3SVD. The qth is about 50Kms west of Mexico City in the countryside, near to the town of Santiago Tianguistengo, and at an altitude of about 2600m (roughly 10,000ft) asl with a very good take off which is good for 6m, blocked only to the south east. The locator there is EK09gg.

My main interest in amateur Radio is DXing from 160 to 6m and I finally made it onto the HONOR ROLL with 337 countries now confirmed. I also have 9 band DXCC with just 160m missing. I am particularly proud of now having 195 counties confirmed on 6m.

MAIN STN: Transceiver:TS950SDX for the HF bands and a TS570SDG which I use almost entirely for 6m. These drive a solid state amplifier (SPE Expert 1K-FA) producing 400W for 160 thru 6m. Antenas: Optibeam 10-3W for 20/27/15m; Optibeam 6-2W for 12/10m, 260ft top doublet for LF bands plus inverted-Vs for 80/40/30m; Cushcraft 6ele yagi for 6m mounted on two 60ft telescopic towers.

XE STN: this was an IC706mk11g 100W but this rig was stolen when we suffered a break-in, so I now have to carry out the TS570S from the UK. Antenas Cushcraft 6 ele yagi for 6m, Cushcraft R4 for 20/15/12/10m 150ft top doublet for LF/30m etc.
