Welcome to my qrz.com lookup page. I am 73 years of age and live in Cardigan, west Wales.Here is some basic information about me and my radio station: Licensed in June 1982. A professional blacksmith and engineer by trade, having run my own business for 40 years,I am now retired and enjoying time on the radio. I have designed and built my own heavy duty 100 foot tower, which is remotely controlled from the shack and viewed via cctv in the shack. The photos below show a variety of views of my home made tower, including the electronic winch system, and my garden. The main radio is an Icom 7800 mk2, with a Yaesu FT5000 second radio. I mainly operate on the LF and HF bands on ssb. My main antennae is an Optibeam 18-6 which is a fantastic antennae which i can thank Thomas from Optibeam for his help and advice.

Below are photos of my main antennae, shack and garage


CONTRUCTION UNDER WAY


This is a very simple device that I have made that may be of interest to other operators, this device will take the load off the rotator in high winds. The holes in the disc can set the antenna(s) to different degrees so that the antenna (s) will be side on into the wind.

At the bottom of the pin I have added a magnet which activates reed switches which tell me when the pin is in or out when im in the shack. At a later date I will post a picture of this magnet and reed switches.

On 10/08/2015 I constructed the below saftey device. I changed this for a brake caliper and staineless steel break disc and hydraulic hand pump.
