Biography

Thank you for looking up c/s G8LZI ...

Although originally hailing from South London, I left there in about 1980. Working for a few years in other locations around the UK, fortunate to finally settle down in the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire borders.

It was in 1976, while at school in South London, I “did” the RAE and was issued the callsign G8LZI
Prior to that I was one of the operators of callsign 20̷A (previously 37C)

After working shifts in the transport industry for 30+ years, I took premature retirement so that I could look after an infirm family member in the manner that I wished they be taken care of. Most of the time my charge needs constant attention. Fortunately, when I’m not actively involved in the nitty-gritty bits of “caring” I can play ham radio. However, I do need to be able to stop whatever it is that I’m doing on the radio and respond to their needs straight away. Even if I don’t get to make many contacts myself, I do get to enjoy an underrated and under appreciated side of the hobby, that is, “spotting” of other stations. My spots are uploaded via VK3AMA’s Hamspots pages (thank you Laurie) I tend to lurk on the Olivia and Hellschreiber spot/chat/sked pages. I’ll be honest, I appreciate it when someone else spots my station too!

I don’t make very many contacts, but when I work you, dear radio friend, it will be in a digital chat mode (never voice on the ham bands) very probably at “stupid” o’ clock (here in the UK) and normally its going to be on the 40 meter band. I can assure you that although I’ll still have one eye on the baby monitor camera and be listening out for the emergency alarm, I WILL be cherishing our QSO, thank you.

Cheers ... chris E
