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

GK3UCQ went QRT at 23:59 on 31 December 2016.

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)

Cornwall to have optional Temporary RSL "K" for Kernow during 2016
By members of Poldhu Amateur Radio Club

TX Factor interviewed me earlier this year and you can see the video HERE
The interview starts about 11 minutes in


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.

Married with two children who have children of their own now.
Now retired having worked in photography all my working life.

My rig is a ICOM IC-7300 which has replaced my FTDX5000. Amplifier SPE Expert 1K-FA

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.

Other hobbies include walking with my wife, Rosemary of 53 years, golf, gardening.
Please QSL via Bureau, LOTW or eQSL. Tks for looking me up.
