Thanks for visiting!

I eke out life on the margins of radio!!

Spent 20 years locked onto 2m packet, so tend to avoid 2m now - and, anyway, there is virtually no activity around my QTH.

Nowadays, my main interest is in HF QRP CW and digital modes - JT65-HF, WSPR, OPERA, PSK31, Hell, MFSK,and very occasional SSTV. Would enjoy skeds in these modes, particularly at low power, particularly VHF/UHF and particularly cross-continent. Also up for VHF "DX" in weak signal modes.

Normal kit: Home QTH: Mainly CW and Data. Rig is an IC-756ProIII generally running about 15W on HF, and a Kenwood TS-2000, which I oddly prefer for CW about 30W,and around 5-10W on VHF data (yet to find anyone to talk to) and very occasional forays into SSB on 144.300 and things

For WSPR and other arcane digital modes (Opera...) I'm now using an FT-817 at 2.5W through an Elecraft T1 tuner into a most rubbishy antenna you could imagine. Currently, it's a piece of wire about 9 metres long lying in a gutter about 2.5 metres up. This doesn't seem to stop WSPR doing serious DX - I've probably got closer to DXCC 100 with this combination than any real, genuine QSOs.

For the rest of the serious stuff, my antenna is currently a tuned long wire around 30m long, which gets up about 10 metres at one point. DXing with a LW in JT65 is certainly an odd thing to try!

Also on the extreme edges of odd is an attempt to do WAS from the UK using data only, preferably JT65 only. If you are in AK,CT,DE,HI,ID,KS,MT,NV,VT or WY I would be REALLY please for a sked in JT65. I'm not holding my breath for HI success...

/P is with an 817, normally SSB or CW


/P: SSB and CW Yaesu 817 QRP, with a SOTA beam or a wire antenna hung on a Fishing pole. The picture is me operating /P on Foel Goch in N Wales, October 2003

I hold no awards whatsoever, and I've never done a contest in my life!

I can't imagine why anyone would be desperate enough to want a QSL card from a British callsign by post, but if you are the one, I'll send one back if you enclose enough postage.

I don't use a bureau. I use eqsl and LoTW.
