Extra QSL Info:QSL Cards always welcome from friends around the world


Radio has been a passion since the early 1980's although most of the time was spent on the 11m bands. Despite such a long period on radio, I have only recently received my amateur ticket (November 2019).

Printing QSL cards went from a hobby to a multi million pound business - strange how a school hobby can shape your life.

A private fixed wing pilot, commercial helicopter pilot and ex-military air traffic controller means that radio has always been a part of what I do.

Located in the north of Scotland, Lossiemouth is approx. 70km EAST of Inverness - legend has it there's a huge monster there, callsign N3SS1E...

My shack is right on the beach front, so please ask for my QSL card which has an amazing sunrise view from the shack window.

I bounce between mobile, base and portable. Often taking my dog (Troy) and the FT818 walkies to see what we get.

Thanks for popping by. You'll find me most on the 20m and 40m bands and once solar cycle 25 gets into gear, 10m


Base: Yaesu FT2000, Hy Gain AV640 antenna, Yaesu MD200 microphone

Mobile: Icom IC751 (Motorhome), Super Antenna MP1 DXTR2

Portable: Yaesu FT818ND, Super Antenna MP1 DXTR2. We tend to find the highest possible hills and mountains of Scotland and squeeze in as many calls before the battery goes flat.

2m Portable: Alinco DJ-596 for 2m and 70cm - seriously though, a paper aeroplane has better range. I tend to use the FT-818ND for VHF and UHF ops.

10m Mobile: Alinco DR135UK and Sirio Antenna. We have a 1966 VW Beach Buggy and go mobile in that - usually on a beach. The rig is taken in case we get stuck!!!

Ham International JUMBO - in 1980 my first rig was the "Jumbo" - 39 years later I managed to by that very same rig back. It still works, I just use don't 11m any more.
