I was first licensed as GW8DNB in February 1970,after much practise I passed my 12 wpm morse examination in November 1977 and became GW4GOQ.

I have been active on all bands from 160M to 23cm and also on satellite RS series, AO10, AO13, digisats and AO40 (2.4Ghz downlink).

Sorry for the poor CW, out of practise after many years,always will be, I never was much good, but keep trying. I have Bencher and Vibroplex paddles to help me.

I am a JT65 user and enjoy that mode.

On VHF/UHF I am trying to develop a 4M/6M capabilty and on 2M/70cm I am investigating the new DMR/Fusion/Dstar so we might meet up using those modes also.

I used to use a Hexbeam for the higher bands, (I was forced to remove the Hexbeam by my local council). I am now experimenting with a back-to-back inverted L for 40M/80M (G7FEK design), it seems to hear the DX on 80M and I am able to work them also, so hope to CU on 80M.  For HF I use an Icom IC7851, a Kenwood TS990 and Yaesu FTdx5000 each giving 200W barefoot, also an Expert 1.3K-FA linear to assist. 

Porthcawl is a small seaside town on the coast of South Wales, near the M4 Motorway half way between the cities of Cardiff and Swansea. The STRONG (Mast problems) salt laden winds staight off the Atlantic can be unwelcome.

I have visited Ireland,Norway,Sweden,Finland,Czech Republic,Germany,Belgum,Holland,Swizerland,France,Spain,Portugul,Morocco,Greece,Maderia Island,Canary Islands,Caribean Islands,USA, Canada, Hawaii and China.

Now I am a retired Systems Engineer, a Widower, and live with my  dog, a Jack Russell terrier who likes to go out and squirt the lawn at 3am, might as well check 40/80 M ;). So if you hear barking it's not me on a full moon, just a dog that wants a QSO ?

My WAB is SS87, QRA IO81dl

I prefer eQSL but will paper QSL via Buro.
