Biography

Member of the RSGB Since 1981
RAE pass Mid 1982 (Credit both papers), CW Pass at Portishead Radio later in 1982, joined FOC April 1995, Joined CWops 4th June 2016
​My only mode of operation on the HF Bands is Morse or CW, like almost everyone I know, I thought I would Pass the Code at 12 WPM and from then on spend the rest of my Amature days on the Mic using SSB. However, I spent about 2 or 3 months on the Microphone and then got the key out and threw away the microphone.
​I have always admired the professional operator, you know, the guy who makes Morse sound like Music, one day, I hope I can sound like some of these people but time is now much too short.
​Antenna wise, I have nothing special, a G5RV and a GP80 Vertical are my only weapons in my restricted plot, the G5RV performs reasonably, the GP80 is what it is, a vertical piece of Aluminium Tube, no radials means it doesn't perform that well but it covers gaps in the G5RV. For top band, the G5RV has to be stretched a little with the FC-102 ATU. It does allow me a few contacts on 160m. I have plans for a 160m lazy loop but I have to try to fit that into my 110 foot garden.
