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 fantastic children and, currently, 5 amazing grandchildren.

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

Logs are uploaded to eQSL and LoTW regularly.

I am an RSGB Approved Morse Assessor and CW is my passion!

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. Please check out my website HERE 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.

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

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.

I have just become interested in the new digital mode called FT8.
New Digital Mode - FT8

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!

           

I am a Past Master of the Earl of St Germans Lodge 7031, a Companion of St Gwethnoc Chapter 1785 Royal Arch and a brother of St Breock Lodge of Mark Master Masons 1605

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