Sheila/xyl     Ken/father     Mike/GW3UOF


Sept 2015 - Dec 2015 Cancer treatment


I enjoyed 50 years of ham radio operating - a great hobby!


How it all began when I was still at school......only paper logs, home made, no electronic logging or mobile phones.....


I wish to acknowledge the warmest of memories meeting with the following amateurs in person over the years:

W1BB Stew Parry (160m pioneer)       ZD8Z Jim Neiger (N6TJ)       KV4AA Dick Spenceley (CQ)

HI3TEJ Ted Jimenez where Sheila and I spent a wonderful holiday in the Dominican Republic

G6FO (G3SWM) Austin Forsyth en route by sea to Australia

Andy Chandwick G4ZVJ (now G3AB)

John Lewis G3MYI - my mentor when at school before I went off /MM.

Leicester Radio Society (G3LRS) - member back in the schooldays of the 1960s

and finally my very good friend Glyn Jones GW0ANA (Barry Amateur Radio Society) who has been supporting my wife Sheila and me through the illness.

Most of the time you hear GW3UOF/M it is from this exact position in the Brecon Beacons National Park at locator IO81GW, near the Visitors' Centre.

Usually on 6m or 17m cw with a Yaesu FT-857D (fitted with W4RT Collins 300Hz/2300Hz filters) running 100 watts to a Watson W-627 vhf/uhf tri-band vertical and a Hustler RM-17 mag-mounted. I use a dedicated 12 volt 45AH battery.

I have now added 2m /P when out mobile. I use a 3m high mast with 5 element ZL-special. The FT857D runs 10w to drive an old S.E.M. Sentinel amp at 100 watts output with a pre-amp giving an extra 10db gain.

The Peugeot 107 Verve number plate G3UOF is my original 1965 call, back in the R1155F receiver days!

In the background you can see the two peaks of Pen y Fan (886m) and Corn Du (873m).
