Ham Member Lookups: 796

 

Have been interested in Short Wave Radio since 1948 when much war surplus gear was available cheap. Got introduced to ham radio by a local ham and became a dedicated SWL. Took Exam in 1957 whilst serving in the Army (REME) as a radar mechanic and passed. We then failed the subsequent, then compulsory, morse test. Eventually obtained a B licence in 1978 (G8OMJ) and took the morse test (12 wpm) in 1983 to upgrade to the full A licence and became G4TGG. Interest has swung from HF to VHF several times but now hinges mainly on using the internet and maintaining contact via 'EchoLink'& 'eQSO'. This works fine for us and have already made quite a number of new friends. Easy to install and use. Give it a try if you havent already done so and see what you think. If you see us on either system give us a call, we would love to talk to you. June 2006. Have recently purchased the Yaesu VX-7R Handheld and getting back on 2 meters. With the odd contact on 70 cems and as yet 'zilch' on 6. Still getting the hang of things but pleased to be back on the air. Local hams note, pleased to talk and usually monitoring GB3NC.

Now a member of the GQRP Club.    Membership No.  14978.

Just completed the MKARS80  80 metre QRP Kit.  Been quite an enjoyable experience, been a long time since I last built anything.

Havent heard anyone in Cornwall yet. Must all be on Twitter or Facebook  Hi.

Just taken delivery of a Boafeng UV-5F.  Eventually done the basic programming. Now waiting for a BNC adapter for the antenna. However the little stubby that is supplied is remarkably good, copying stations from down Falmouth way no problem. From here get into NC with one watt no problem. See how it goes when I can use the J pole. Cost of the rig       under £20. Unbelievable!
