First licensed in 1972 as G8GPR. Obtained full callsign in 1974 whilst at University. Very active 1972 - 1977 from my parents' QTH in North Lancashire on 2m SSB. Then life took over (kids and job) ! Moved to Woking, Surrey; then to Boston, USA. Worked in telecommunications engineeering and regulation. Travelled a great deal; No time for amateur radio. 2004 moved back to UK (Isle of Wight) and the 'bug' bit again, after 30 years ! Home QTHwas poor for VHF, but I am fairly active on 6m (wonderful band, not available when I was active in the 70s) and /P on 2m from some of the high spots on this lovely island. Hoping for a better QTH and antenna system 2009 onwards.

October 2009, moved to new location in Ventnor, Isle of Wight. 135 metres asl with a clear take off across the sea from due East, through South, to due West.

The picture above is looking East towards Sandown Bay from near my new QTH.

73s de G4CZP

Effective October 2015:

FT-911 driving home-brew linear amplifiers for 2 metres (BLF188XR MOSFET) and 6 metres (BLF578 XR MOSFET), both producing up to 400 Watts.
For 70 cm BLF184 XR producing 400 Watts, for 23cm 2 x XRF-286 producing 150 Watts.
2 metre antenna is 9 ele Innovantennas LFA..
6 metre antenna is Innovantennas 4 ele LFA.
70 cm antenna is a 15 ele LFA.
23cm antenna (portable only) is a 44 ele WIMO.
2 metre, 70cm and 23cm receivers have ultra low noise GaAsFET preamplifiers.
Linear amps. have 7 pole low pass filters.
70 cm and 23 cm antennas not on main mast - I erect them in the garden when conditions warrant and also use them for /P operation from my nearby high spot.
2m and 6m antennas 12 metres agl, with QTH 140 metres asl, clear take off East, South and West. Very poor take off in Northerly directions.

HF is FT991 or FT897 with home brew MOSFET linear amp, (4 x VRF2933) 400 Watts to a Hy-Gain 14 AVQ trap vertical, no radials, not very well set up.
I try to be active for UKAC contests on Tuesdays as often as weather and work permit.
Hope to work you soon,
Best 73s
