Activities
------------

- Fairly quiet at the moment as had some antenna masts come down again in extreme weather.

Gripes
------------

- Amateurs that use "contacted before" facilities. Very rude.
- Amateurs that PESTER other amateurs (i.e. >1 contact per band per GMT day).
- Amateurs that do not respond when called (PSKREPORTER.INFO tells a lot !)
- Arrogant Amateurs that use terms such as "LID"


Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Usual Equipment: Yaesu FT-101E, Yaesu FT-991, Yaesu FT-897D, Yaesu FT-7900, G59 SDR, SDRCube

Operational Equipment: FT-991 with TZ-WD-4080 [ I do not admit to owning and flying a G5RV ]

Antennas: TZ-WD-4080 Trap Dipole, 80m doublet, 40m 1/4 Vertical, 2/70 4 element (towards Mount William), X50 [ Again I do not admit to flying a G5RV - perhaps the most over-rated antenna ]
