Hi All

QRV early mornings most days on 80 metres and any time of the day or night on 6M.

80M set up is a full sized four square antenna system using four x 18m Spiderbeam verticals and and Array Solutions Hybrid controller.

Primary image top right is taken looking North West over the 4 square and QTH on the Morning of 11th December 2017 after 12 inches of snow had fallen the day before.

On 6m I have just installed (July 2016) a 4 x 7 ele PowAbeam array with elevation on a SPID BIG-RAS HR controller. This is remote operated by network from the PC in another room.

Located right next to Offas Dyke the QTH is 1200ft asl with a clear takeoff in most directions so excellent for VHF. To the East and West we have a negative horizon so EME contacts at MR and MS are possible on 6 even at 0 degrees elevation.

In the shack the equipment ranges from a 60 year old Collins 74A-4 Receiver/ KWS-1 transmitter pair (known as the Gold Dust Twins) to Elecraft K3's, IC7851, Anan 200D and various transverters for other bands (and of course our own amplifiers from time to time ;) )

View of Cader Idris, 40 miles NW of the QTH. Taken from this QTH with Canon 5D/400mmf4 lens early morning Jan 20th 2016. Yes, we have a clear take off from here! :

QSL's.  Note I do NOT collect physical QSL cards. All contacts are confirmed on LoTW.  If you want a physical card then please send a SAE with sufficient currency to cover return postage. I do not use the Buro or OQRS system.
