A Shortwave listener (BRS 37131) and RSGB member since the age of 17, I was first licenced in August 1979 as G8XFW. After attending weekly evening classes at Bedford High School to learn CW (thanks Gerry G4JUB et al) I completed the 12 wpm Morse test at GPO 'Humber Radio' coastal station GKZ at Trusthorpe in Lincolnshire and was allocated the present callsign in August 1982 (fee £8.00).

I am a member of the Lincoln Shortwave Club (G5FZ & G6COL); someone may remember me from membership of the Bedford (Ravensden) ARC (G3WTP) or Mid-Beds RAYNET in the early 1980s, the Dunstable Downs ARC (G0/G4/G8DDC - late 1980s), or a brief spell with the RAF Wyton Amateur Radio & Electronics Club (G3MMH) in the mid-1990s.

After some success using BPSK/QPSK with an indoor loop on 20m band, I returned to the HF bands in 2012 with an Inverted Vee dipole after several years absence. I am a longtime member of the RSARS, RAFARS and the BATC, and more recently joined the ranks of WAB, EPC, DMC, BDM, 30MDG, NDG, ISWL, BARLS, UKSMG and CDXC. In past years I have run special event stations for the Scouts (GB0ESA, GB2FBW) and Guides (GB0WFG) and held a commission with the Air Training Corps.

Check my Clublog Here:I'm gradually building my scores for Prefixes, Countries, Regions, WAB squares, book numbers, Locator grid squares (MGS) on V/UHF, HF DXCC, CQ WAZ, ITU1/2/3 WAZ etc.

I enjoy both VHF Contests and having a good rag chew sometimes, hearing about other people's interests, pastimes and life experiences. I have been a member of the BATC for Twenty+ years and have recently had my interest in ATV rekindled by the introduction of Raspberry Pi (RPi)-based Digital (Reduced bandwidth) Transmitters and Software-based receiver/decoder. These are known as the Portsdown Transmitter and the Minitoiune Receive project, developed by Jean-Pierre F6DZP

  Confirming QSO


No one likes to be told how to run their lives right? but please - a small appeal:

  • Please, please read and re-read the information in your QRZ.com entry. Many people (newbies and old-timers alike) transpose their CQ and ITU zones; this is so easy to get wrong.  Also note that your ITU zone is not 1,2 or 3 (that is the IARU admin. region); there are 70 ITU zones that.you could be in.
  • If you hear (or suspect) that a frequency is in use DON'T START LENGTHY TUNING AND OHWLA-ING on the QRG!!!
  • Don't expect others to be able to continue an SSB QSO when you transmit SSB just +/- 1KHz from an established QSO with KW+ erp.
  • If you put eQSL and/or LotW in your QRZ profile, don't use a QSL manager - make sure you use the QSL method that you selected - many don't bother; this is wasteful and frustrating for award hunters.
  • Don't refuse to QSL because you've amassed a zillion QSL cards and/or you're too mean/tight - we all started out with nothing, right?.
  • Regardless of the Mode and Band, if we don't exchange signal reports, or you decide to dump our exchange for some choice DX you've just spotted, etc, we've not had a QSO. My call should not in your log - your call won't be in my log..
  • Finally, if you operate with a special event callsign please don't ask for a QSL confirmation for your own callsign - I didn't have a QSO with your own callsign - I can't confirm what didn't take place. In business (and law?) we identify that misrepresentation as FRAUD.
