Biography

QRV again since 10th January 2016 after a 30 year break from amateur radio! First licensed in early seventies as G8FAG then passed the morse test and became G4BSW after brilliant morse tuition fom Ivan Eamus G3KLT.

Former Marine Radio Officer 1974 - 1991.

Was amazed to find that I had not forgotten CW after all the years (was using it commercially up to 1990) - Guess a bit like "riding a bike" - You never forget it! Got myself a new Begali paddle and a Hamgadgets Pico keyer and again can rattle away up to around 35wpm rag chewing.

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Kenwood TS590SG and Icom IC-7300 both used with RUMLogNG for full CAT Control. Elecraft KPA500 amplifier. Antennas - 40M and 20M dipoles (inverted vee) . Inverted L for 80M. Half wave end fed horizontal for 6M and 30M.
