Biography

Retired teacher, interested in radio for over 50 years. Previous calls G7UST, F8VOC. (We lived in France for a time before returning to Suffolk).
Works all bands 160m - 70cm, mainly SSB. (160m is difficult from present QTH). Favourite bands 6m, 4m and 2m ssb - but poor QTH for antennas! Most 4m and 6m operating uses a 5/8 vertical.
Also enjoy LW/MW/FM bandII DX-ing with home-made loop antennas, NDB monitoring, lightning monitoring. I enjoy experimenting with different wire antennas for all the bands. There is always something to find on the radio frequencies!!

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Icom IC-7300 for HF, 6m and 4m, Yaesu FT-991A for HF, 2m and 70cms (also on 2m SSB with linear amplifier), Yaesu FT-7800E on 2m/70cm FM, Tytera380 on DMR, MFJ-949E tuner, MFJ artificial ground tuner, Alinco DX-R8E receiver with Palstar tuner for LW/MW/NDB DX-ing, SDRSP2 receiver, various old handhelds/scanners.
Antennas:- dual band colinear, 7-ele ZL beam for 2m ssb, doublet (HF and 6m),Inv-L (using alloy pole as vertical with 8m top), HB9CV for 70cms, 2-ele dual band beam for 6m and 4m, 5/8wave vertical for 70MHz/50MHz, plus various other odd bits of wire! Very limited space for decent antennas, we have a tiny garden and the trees are all across roads, so all the wire antennas are hidden in the guttering and fall-pipes or against the rear wall of the house.

DX Code Of Conduct

dx code of conduct small logoI support the "DX Code Of Conduct" to help to work with each other and not each against the others on the bands. Click here and find out more about the project and how you can endorse it.
