First licenced in 1971 as G8FFV then ZR5BD, ZS5YH and finally G4GGZ. Have also operated as SV5/G4GGZ and F/G4GGZ in holiday mode. RSGB and GQRP member-my brother is Mike G3KMO.

The QTH is Aldershot, Hampshire locator IO91OF very near the Hampshire/Surrey border 50KM South West of London. Aldershot is well known as the home of the British army and Farnborough is nearby and famous in aviation history (Colonel Cody) and the bi-yearly international air show.

Now retired, my career mainly involved radio systems from LF through to tropo & cellular and was employed at various times by Solartron-Schlumberger, Storno (which was taken over by GE then Motorola), Barlow Communication (of Barlow Wadley RX fame) & Vodafone in the UK, Eire, South Africa & the UAE-duties included manufaturing,installation, commissioning, operations, training and some sales.

I build, repair & modify radios & other equipment & experiment with antennas-anything to keep the brain cells oiled! Back in early 1970's I was very involved with establishing one of the first UK 2M repeaters GB3SN.

In 2011 I returned to amateur radio after a 15 years break-my station comprises an ICOM 746 tcvr original version, IC-PS30 power supply, IC-2KL linear, IC-AT500 tuner and a Cushcraft R5 antenna (it also works on 6M/30M) erected in stealth mode up inside a birch tree-I also have an R7 which I'm restoring at present. Everything came from Ebay and repaired/serviced by myself if needed.

I mostly use CW but enjoy 10M AM/FM also-favourite bands WARC 12M especially.

Other interests include fishing, gardening, & of course the family-my xyl is Kate and we have three children plus seven grandaughters (so far!) - the youngest Maysa & Soumayah are with me in the photo. We also have an English Springer spaniel called Fred who really lives up to the springer in his his name!

73, Jerry
