Biography

I mainly operate from my motorhome, I have a 2m whip beside the MH ladder. I have recently taken the mast down and run 2 or 3 monoband verticals. In this configuration I can also drive away if required.

You can see video of my operating conditions and areas I operate from at

Why not come and take a look :-)

I tried a horizontal loop around the roof but was unable to get rid of all the RFI issues. Great receiving antenna but no good on anything over 10 watts on transmit.

Twin 150W solar panels sit permanently on the roof for domestic battery power and via dual charge controller to the radio battery.

For portable ops I am QRV on HF and 6m via my TS-480 and on 2m and 70cm FM via a TM-D710E.

I often have my APRS Beacon on when set up for the night.

QSL information:

Direct only with SAE - if you send me a card direct I will return the compliment.
