I am located just south of Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland.  My locator square is IO74cm and my WAB square is J46.

My training in amateur radio has been an adventure and it was through the encouragement and support of Antrim and District Amateur Radio Society (MN0GFE) that I gained my Foundation license on 4 June 2015, then on 4 June 2016 I passed my Intermediate exam. Travelling to Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland, I achieved a pass in the Harmonised Amateur Radio Examination Certificate (HAREC) on 2 June 2016 and finally on 16 December 2016 I successfully sat the UK Advanced examination following study with the Bath ARC distance learning programme.  



My base station is a Yaesu FT-950 for HF, the antenna is a Cushcraft MA5B Minibeam and a Watson DBD 4080 traped dipole for 80m and 40m bands.  I use a Yaesu 857D primarily for 2M and 70cm connected to a Diamond X510N vertical.  For portable use I operate a KX3 and a Yaesu 817ND connected to home brew wire dipoles.

I enjoy chasing DX, SOTA and WAB and anything else that seems unusual to me.  Portable operation is great fun and has given me an appreciation for QRP operation.  My latest challenge is learning CW, which is an ongoing project for which persistence is a requirement. I recommend enlisting with the CW Academy courses to get you on the key!  I have just recently completed their Level 1 course and am waiting to commence Level 2.  I am a member of the NAQCC, membership number 9215 - http://naqcc.info/ and also of FISTS membership number 18434 - http://fists.co.uk/.

I am also QSL manager for the special event station GB0GLS commemorating the work of the Gilnahirk radio listening station which operated from 1940 to 1978.
