Did go QRT in July 2016 but, thanks to some great pals who want to hear my "fist" on the bands and thanks to a very good friend who has sold me a rig at I price I could afford and couldn't possibly refuse, I returned to the bands in early January 2017.  Looking forward to linking up with pals on the air.  I was licensed in September 1970 and have been almost entirely CW ever since.

Clubs  FISTS 7727  SKCC 3492C (ex FOC 1774)

Please Note, no longer in RSGB so please don't send cards via buro as they will be rejected by RSGB.  eQSL and L.O.T.W are fine.

I was a Merchant Navy Radio Officer 1971-1978 and then worked at Portishead Radio maritime station until 1988 when I changed jobs and worked in radio research ending as a Telecomms instructor in the Civil Service was medically retired after a nervous breakdown in 1999.  Due to a couple of health problems, I've only done occasional voluntary work since retirement.

Amateur Radio friends and my wonderful wife Sally have been vital in making my life so much worth living, here's Sally celebrating her birthday in October 2016 and  G3ZRJ Colin, G3VTT and Sally at Falmouth Shanty Festival 2016, all had been caught in typical Summer downpour.










Photos of some of the ships on which I served as Radio Officer, they are in turn:
















My QTH is in a very small village about six miles from the market town of Tiverton in Mid-Devon.   LOC:  IO80EV    WAB: SS81

The station is an ICOM IC746 into low inverted vee dipoles, I am mostly active on 160/80/40M bands on CW.  Key mostly used is a German RFT kindly given to me by DL4CF / Joe, I also have a very battered Kent twin paddle and am making a Sideswiper and will be practising off air until I can make something related to the International Morse Code on it, in addition I have two bug keys  J36 and Hi-Mound BK-100 which are in regular use on the air.


My station also showing my mighty 20 foot pole with fan dipole for 160/80/40 Metres

and below a view form the bottom of the garden we share with our landlord who kindly lets me play with "bits of wire"    I am very fortunate in having the space for a full 80M dipole and for 160M dipole with half of its legs wound into trees and bushes
