Thankyou for visiting my QRZ page, feel free to add a web contact. HF rigs in regular use are - Kenwood TS-590s and TS-50, Yaesu FT-857d and FT-817ND; I'm quite new to QRP ops, but finding it very absorbing, definitely adds something when your call is repeated back over a long distance. So far I've made it as far as Cyprus to the East and New York to the West with only 5 watts. Often get no reply since the signal's so tiny, but enough times sympathetic operators pick up on the QRP suffix and help the contact become complete - thanks all who've done that for me!
Please note, everyone - I don't use eQSL Confirmation via QRZ.com is all I ask. For those of you who don't use the QRZ.com log, no worries - it was nice to have a contact with you. Here's a link to a clip I shot on Monday June 20th 2016. Showing my FT-857d's head on a Garmin GPS mount - a very useful combination. https://www.flickr.com/photos/46085750@N02/27203814073/in/dateposted-public/ Just below here is a shot of yours-truly on a "Museums On The Air" day on June 27th 2015 at the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther - I was helping out the event organiser Colin GM6HGW to crew the station over the two day event.
And below here is one of a local trip for some coastal DXing taken Monday May 4th 2015. The antenna up on the masts is a full size G5RV - here it's almost twice as high as my home antenna - my little house is low, my home HF antenna is in the attic, less than 20ft up. The shot below is of my old boat, now sold and with her new owner - part of the proceeds funded an upgrade to the main home rig - now a Kenwood TS-590S. Here's a sunset shot of St Andrews Castle, pic taken from the harbour looking West where between 1999 and 2015 I kept a boat for inshore fishing & a little bit of lobster fishing. NB - I'm M0HRL when in England on vacation. WAB square is NO51 I'm an amateur photographer - see my work at https://www.flickr.com/photos/46085750@N02/with/10652213605/
I've been a fisherman for over 50 years, am interested in radios, Canadian canoes, boats, books, old motorcycles, digital SLR cameras and landscape/bird photography.
