Biography

Please note I manage the logbook for my original call sign G1OUJ, please confirm contacts for this if requested, thank you.



First Licensed in the mid 80's as G1OUJ then in late 1986 gained my 'A' class license. I did not apply to get my 'A' call sign straight away as I wanted 'G0HLT', which was my initials, but after waiting quite some time for this call to come around I decided I could not wait any longer so took the next available one in January 87 getting G0GLG. Spent the first half of my life in HM Forces (both Army then RAF). After leaving the RAF I worked for British Telecom as an engineer becoming a Technical Officer before retiring in 2013.

I also have another passion which is Scuba Diving, having taken this up (again) in 1996, I first took my PADI qualifications then joined the British Sub Aqua Club, progressing to BSAC Advanced Diver and Open Water Instructor.

Radio is an FT991A running 100 watt and as I only have a small garden I have to use a vertical broadband antenna, this is a Comet CHA250BXII HF/6M vertical at 12M AGL on a wind up tower. Tunes up well over the complete HF bands from 80M through 6M. Not a dummy load I can assure anyone looking for a reasonable low impact vertical for the HF bands.

Worked DXCCs:
