I was born in the late 1960s and have been interested in radio for many years. I passed the Ham Radio exam in December 1990 and was first licensed in October 1991 with the call sign G7LBJ . I operated from Woodbridge, Suffolk, England, with this call sign for approximately 5 years until June 1997, when I took the 12wpm Morse Code examination to gain my full class license. My call sign then changed to M0BCT.

I used this new call sign from the same QTH in Woodbridge until 19th April 2001, which is when I moved QTH to the lovely countryside village of Blaxhall, which is about 10 miles north of Woodbridge.

The locator for my Woodbridge QSOs was JO02pc, WAB TM24, and for the current QTH of Blaxhall, JO02rd, WAB TM35. IOTA EU-005 (Mainland England)

I have operated as , 9A/M0BCT/MM, LA/M0BCT, LA/M0BCT/MM, JW/M0BCT, EA8/M0BCT, EA6/M0BCT, CT9/M0BCT, I8/M0BCT, SV8/M0BCT/P,GW/M0BCT, GM/M0BCT, M0BCT/MM, /M & /P.

My holiday style operating will usually consist of a Yaesu FT-817 (QRP 5w max), Palm Radio mini paddle, and depending on the QTH either home brew dipoles, an ATX Walkabout ( small vertical), or an End Fed Halfwave homebrew.

I am a former member of the Ipswich Radio Club and served on the committee for 4 years and I no longer handle the QSL cards for the club.

Since moving QTH, I am now a member of Leiston Amateur Radio club ( http://larc.org.uk/ ) and have served several years on the committee and four as chairman although I've now stepped down to allow more time for my work commitments.

My main interest is DX chasing and sometimes operating /m or /mm. I also like working IOTA stations and simply enjoying a nice rag-chew over great distances.

I have recently been trying some of the numerous data modes, refreshing my Morse, and always looking at ways to improve the antenna installations.

The tower is a Heavy Duty 18m Versatower with electronic winch and the rotator is a Pro-Sis-Tel Big Boy rotator-PST61D mounted in a professionally homemade and galvanized head unit.

I enjoy receiving QSL cards especially if it is a new band/mode slot or an IOTA‚ and always QSL 100% via bureau, LOTW or direct, although, regrettably a little behind at times!

Other Interests: Bird/wildlife watching, walking, sailing, badminton, real ale and traditional old Suffolk pub songs. Cheers....!
