Biography

I am a retired Electrical/Electronic Engineer, now living in SW Scotland. I am keen on self-construction and tinkering about with test equipment and old radios.

I was the author of the RSGB Test Equipment for Radio Amateurs book (3rd and 4th Eds) and have also contributed to the Radio Communications Handbook.

I am interested in training people for the Radio Examinations, especially the Advance Exam. I am lead Instructor at Wigtownshire Amateur Raio Club (Stranraer) and also a tutor for a distance learning Advanced Examination Course.

I am active from 80m to 23cms, mainly prefer the VHF/UHF bands

I have also done QRP work from New Zealand and worked many countries, even the UK, on 5W with my faithful FT817. My callsign was ZL/GM4FZH.

Worked DXCCs:
