Welcome and thank you for checking out my QRZ page.

I was born in 1970, in Cornwall, and I currently live in the village of Fraddon. The village is approx 5 miles inland from Newquay on the North Cornwall Coast.

I am married and have a wonderful, understanding but long suffering wife, 4 grown up children and, currently, 7 grandchildren.

Please note, my preferred QSL methods are Bureau - eQSL - LoTW - Direct.

Logs are regularly uploaded to eQSL, HRDLog, LoTW and right here on QRZ Log.

I am an RSGB Morse Assessor and I am passionate about CW !!

In my spare time, and to help fund this wonderful hobby, I make laser cut A5/A4 LED edge lit Shack Signs, Clocks and also bespoke covers for morse keys and engraved slate coasters and placemats. Please check out my website at www.g0pnm.uk or my facebook page HERE. Some examples of items I have already made are below. As you can see the designs can be quite intricate!

I became a member of the First Class CW operators club at the beginning of November 2016 after 6 months of hard work and the current conditions didn't help! This is a wonderful club aimed at good operating practice. For more information, please visit our website (click link) www.g4foc.org  for information on membership and our activities. I am now a committee member. There is a very interesting article on Morse Code Proficiency. It has been written by Gary, ZL2IFB, a fellow FOC member and it is free to read and download from HERE

Aimed at the stright key, bug or other mechanical key operator, the Straight Key Century Club is another club I am reasonably active with. They offer an award scheme for members worked. Starting with 100 members worked you become a Centurion and have the letter 'C' after your membership number. Next is the Tribune. Once you are a Centurion you can then work a further 50 Centurions, Tribunes or Senators and you will be awarded the Tribune and have the letter 'T' after your call. After that is the Senator. This is quite an achievement to attain. For more information on these, and the other awards that the SKCC offer, please visit the website at www.skccgroup.com

Essex CW Amateur Radio Club is for anyone with a passion for Morse Code.   Although the founders were from Essex, England, we welcome members from much further afield.  In fact it would be great to hear from like-minded folk from anywhere in the UK and beyond. For more information, please visit www.essexcw.org.uk

My QSL Cards.

From 1st January to 31st December 2016, I was able to use the callsign GK0PNM. This was in recogntion of the Cornish people being recognised under the European Framework Convention for National Minorities. Exactly the same as the Welsh (GW), Scottish (GM) and Northern Irish (GI). Cornwall is now recognised as a celtic nation with its own unique identity. If you worked me in 2016 under the GK call, this is the card you will receive.

  

Saint Piran's Flag (CornishBaner Peran) is the flag of Cornwall, England, UK. The earliest known description of the flag, as the Standard of Cornwall, was written in 1838. It is used by some Cornish people as a symbol of identity. It is a white cross on a black background.

The flag is attributed to Saint Piran, a 6th-century Cornish abbot. One early use of a white cross and black background design is the 15th-century coat of arms of the Saint-Peran family.

My current shack consists of an Icom IC-7300 with LDG AT200 Pro tuner, Yaesu FTM400XDE System Fusion and my antennas are a Western HF10 and an MFJ 1835 Cobwebb for HF and an X300 Colinear for 2m/70cms repeaters. I also have an old Kenwood TM-221E which I use purely on RX for ISS SSTV reception.

For more information on the Western HF10, Please checkout Fred Western's QRZ page. Its a fantastic antenna, very well made and very affordable (£68 plus post!) Tunes 160-6m.

I am a proud owner and user of Begali Keys

I have my own Facebook group dedicated to Begali keys and it can be found here:-

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1577446589207635/

Whether you are a Begali owner / user or are thinking about buying one, and are on Facebook, you are more than welcome!

I have been employed by Devon and Cornwall Police since 1996 and I have been in my current role of Police Community Support Officer since January 2003.

I am one of the original PCSO's from the Home Office pilot, before every force had them. When I started we had just 20 PCSO's. Now there are 360 within D&C.

For those outside of the UK, The role of a PCSO does vary slightly from force to force but in essence the role is to provide public reassurance through high visibility patrols, to deal with anti-social behaviour and to deal with low level crime.

I am based at Wadebridge Police Station and the area we cover includes Port Isaac. Some may know this fishing village as Port Wenn, from the popular TV series Doc Martin. Please see below for some photo's around Port Isaac and you might recognise some of the buildings from the show!

All within the constituation of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE).

The picture above is when I met the Grand Master HRH The Duke of Kent, KG, GCMG, GCVO, ADC
