Biography

Started as a Shortwave listener in 1947.

Served in the Royal Air Force 1953-1954 as an Air Wireless Mechanic.

Passed the Radio Amateurs Examination in 1958 and obtained my Callsign in 1964

Am active on all bands 1.8-420 Mhz

Since 1992 have had a daily QSO with 9J2BO in Zambia for who I act as QSL manager.

I ahave been a member of the RSGB for 64 years also the Royal Air Force Amateur Radio Society,Radio Amateur Old Timers Association ,FISTS ,The Straight Key Club , and the
Cheltenham Amateur Radio Association.

Main mode of use is CW although in nets I often go on SSB .

Equipment

Main rig for HF is a Kenwood TS850sat , with a TS830s and a TenTec Century 21 as standby.

A home built Linear using 2 X 813 tubes in grounded grid is also available.


On 50MHz I used a Microwave Modules Transverter using the TS830 as IF.

On 144Mhz I use a Kemwood TR9130 multimode transceiver.

Antennas for which I only have a limited space are an Inverted "V" doublet for
HF, at 8.5metres high in the centre.

For 50MHz I have a vertical dipole at 6 metres high and for 144/430Mhz a co-linear
vertical at 8 metres.
