"The birth of radio going DX was from Cornwall" M3FEH

For much of 2016 I operated as GK3UCQ making over 7,000 QSOs in the year with the unique prefix.
Along with all the other 'K' call signs,  GK3UCQ went QRT at 23:59 on 31 December 2016.

See my GK3UCQ QRZ.com page for QSL details

I am proud to say that I was partly responsible in persuading OfCom to grant a Notice of Variation (NoV)
for the use of 'K' for radio amateurs in Cornwall (Kernow)

First licensed as 5B4JF, with the RAF in Cyprus, in 1964 and later that year as VS9SJF on Socotra Island (RAF/ARMY Expedition) The only ham operation from Socotra until 7O6T in May 2012. I became G3UCQ in 1966.

I have been back to Soqotra (Socotra) twice, in 2002 and 2003. Visit my website at www.soqotra.info for details and photos of this rare and unique island. A big thrill was working 7O6T in May 2012 when I managed 12 slots. A great effort from the 7O6T team. Also worked 7O2A on Socotra.

My wife, Rosemary died in May, 2017.
We had two children and now have 3 grand children.
I retired in 2005 having worked in photography all my life.

From 15 February, 2018 my rig is a ICOM IC-7610, great transceiver, which has replaced my IC-7300
Amplifier SPE Expert 1K-FA.  3 Jan 2018. Purchased a Yaesu FT-817ND to do some /P operating.

Antennas - a hexbeam from MW0JZE for 20M to 6M, which I highly recommend. 
(I had 2 QSOs with the USA in 2014 on 6M using the Hex Beam.)
Also Butternut HF6v vertical with 36 x 30' radials which I use on 80M cw, 40M and 30M.

I also have a 80m long OCFD fed with 300 ohm ribbon for low band operation.

Please QSL via Bureau, LOTW or Clublog. Tks for looking me up. 

73 de John, G3UCQ
