Thanks for looking me up on QRZ.com. My names Rob,

My QTH Location is Kilham, in East Yorkshire, WAB:TA06 - Grid square:IO94TB Location is 4.3 mi (7.0 km) from SOUTH edge of grid square, 15.4 mi (24.8 km) from EAST edge of grid square. Latitude is 54.0628 N (54°3' 46" N) Longitude is 0.3808 W (0° 22' 51" W)

Kilham is a nice quiet village inbetween Driffield and Bridlington, Kilham was once an important Market Town and main centre of the Wolds before Driffield grew due to the use of its canal for moving goods. The village is surrounded by Hills on all sides, so hence the reason for choice of antennas, and the reasoning for placing them as high as possible.

I passed my M3 (UK Foundation licence) on 11/07/06 and was issued "M3WLY" on the 13th of July 2006, and had my first contact on the 11th of August 2006. I took the foundation course and exam at the Hornsea ARC. On the 29th of December 2006, I passed the Intermediate exam, and was issued "20WLK" (2E0WLK) on the 3rd of January 2007. Again I took the course and exam at Hornsea ARC.

On the ..TBA later.

Currently fly around the local "GB3" repeaters, and scan around on 6m/2m/70cm. The VHF UHF 6m/2m/70cm Vertical Collinear Antenna is high! Currently on top of a 17foot pole, on the side the house, so it is just over 52+ foot above the ground. The gain specifications are 6m-1/2,2.15dB. 2m-2x5/8,8.3dB. 70cm-4x5/8,11.7dB.

The HF antenna is a homebrew 160/80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10/6 HF 1/4 vertical, To me this will be the ultimate in a DX antenna (for a vertical) having everything, 160/80/60/40/30/20/17/15/12/10/6 and the SWR will be 1 accross the entire bands. The SWR currently tunes down to 1 in every place 40meters and down, however on topband I am required to run outside and adjust the wire on the coil to allow me to go top/middle or bottom of the allocation. The Vertical is made from a SOTA-beam 10meter fibre glass fishing pole, (sotabeams.co.uk/) with some insulated copper speaker wire. M0IKB's design, however instead of running lots of radials out for each band I used a 3footwide 50meter role of 13mm very fine galvanised steel chicken mesh, and laid it out under the entire garden surrounding the antenna. It tunes down to 1 across all of the bands, and the receive capability is great!

High Frequency QRP operation is easy, with 5watts and 10watts I have worked Canada, Russia, Europe, Asia.

The power supply is a Palstar Variable PS30 30A with a standard transformer so there is no risk of RF interference.

As soon as I get a QSL card designed, I’ll send them out to you all.

73, and 55 with the DX.

Rob
