First interest in radio was in the late 60’s while still a music student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and living in Hertford. A trip down Tottenham Court Road produced the first receiver which was then connected to a full wave Windom on 80 meters. Listening was restricted to night time so an interest in 80 meter DX was cultivated.

On moving to Aberdeen any form of station was hard to set up because of accommodation problems. However I was first licensed as GM6AXU on VHF and UHF and had lots of fun working friends in Aberdeen with occasional DX to the continent and Norway. In 1985 I passed my Morse and requested the callsign GMØDBW. Spent many a happy evening chasing DX of any kind on HF with GM4PVC (now VK6CPV) with talk back on VHF achieving DXCC very quickly.

In 1992 ran the first school link station between Linksfield Academy Aberdeen and School No 6 in Gomel, Belarus (before kid link) with the callsign GBØLAG where the pupils where permitted to pass “Greetings messages” to each other, this lasted for a month. (Thank you R.S.G.B.).

Life has moved apiece since then!!! I now have my HF and VHF station back “On line”. I still have my trusty IC 740 and IC AT 500, but now I also have an IC 2KL, IC 735, IC 251e with the mutec front end, a 100 watt B.N.O.S. Linear and a IC PS 30. “A classic set up”. With DSP by bhi.

Christmas Eve 2005 a much waited on (from February) IC 7000 arrived :-) One of the first in the UK!!! The VHF stations are connected to a 10 XY and the HF stations are connected to a Hustler 5 band vertical as I live in the centre of Aberdeen but I am working on the neighbours ;-).

Success!! I now have a ZX-Yagi MINI-2000 and its getting out very well!!!

AT LASTt!!! April 2011 now QRV HF Mobile with another IC7000 to an AH4 and AH 2B Icom whip antenna.

I alsorun VHF and UHF from the car as well and am to be heard on S22 from about 08.00 local on working weekdays.

I still chase low band DX (mostly on 40 meters these days) any DX and also IOTA.
