is a young 72 year old and I was first licensed in 1975, and almost immediately became interested in chasing DX. I need only TWO countries on SSB, FOUR on CW and 17 SEVENTEEN on RTTY. I used to be a very keen contester but now I pick and choose which contests to enter. Over time I have activated most of Scotland’s offshore Islands. I went on my first expedition for the IOTA Contest in 1998 when we operated from Antigua. Having caught the expedition bug, I went on to operate from V2, VP8, OY, T30, T33, EA8, GJ, GD, 9H, TY, V8, 6W, T2, ZB2, 3D2, VK6, TX7 (Marquesas) W7 and VE7.
My main interest is SSB, followed by RTTY and CW in that order of skill level. I have been a QSL Manager for many DX stations for around 15 years, and until recently was the Sub Buro manager for the RSGB Buro, for the majority of Scotland.
My pet hates are those who call using only TWO letters, constant callers, duplicate callers and contacts, those who bad mouth expedition operators when they have no understanding of the conditions under which they are operating, people who make stupid comments on the Cluster such as “tnx 9 bands” or whatever.
Born in 1964 and got hooked to the magic of radio at a very young age.
In 1979 I was first licensed at the age of 15.
Shortwave DX attracted me from day one, and I hold the DXCC HR#1 mixed mode amongst others.
My main interest is SSB, but like CW as well.
I had the pleasure to operate from different entities in the past, and was active as:
GJ/PA3DSR, PJ7/PA4WM, FS/PA4WM, VP2EWM, V46WM, VP2MWM, VP2MPA (CQWW 2002) and TA1/PA4WM
Outside the hobby I am working as a drilling engineer in the international oil and gas field.
Enjoy radio, enjoy DX! Hope to work you all from A35.
