Hi there,
Thanks for looking at my QRZCQ page...

Having returned to the hobby after 25'ish years away from it, I shall never make the mistake of selling my radio equipment again!. I fell away from radio around the early to mid 90s, or thereabouts due to & family commitments & a busy work schedule.
Drifting away from radio isn't something I plan on doing again however.

Antenna theory & propagation are aspects of amatuer radio I've always enjoyed, the satisfaction experienced making a QSO on a freshly built homebrew antenna is awesome...

Datamodes is something I have enjoyed before leaving the hobby, SSTV, RTTY & CW using a well known software called JVFax at that time. Unfortunately it only ran on a DOS operating system, however there is lots of really good software, free and paid for, currently available for data.

My location is in the region of Berwickshire, S.E Scotland, approx 40 miles south east of the city of Edinburgh. My station is right on the coastline with the North Sea being literally a stone throw away.

My Maidenhead Locator is IO85tw, WAB sq: NT77, IOTA: EU-005.

If you hear me then please give me a call to say hello, 73 de MM6PMQ - Andy

Worked DXCCs:


Main radio at home: Yaesu FT1000MP
Second radio at home and also used /M or /P etc: Yaesu FT900, I've also a TS480HX

ATU: S.E.M Transmatch

Antenna: Inverted 80m dipole @ 10-12m, DXC 40m 1/4wave vertical, Hustler 6BTV.
For /M I use AmPro monoband whips, had some good contacts on 20m with the Ampro 20 including east coast US on 10w a couple of times and into the Middle East.
Unfortunately, while the 40m one works ok, the 80m one I haven't had much luck with....ok using a half wave 80m counterpoise however despite not being too practical on a vehicle hi.

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.
