The G8GTZ Amateur Radio and TV pages

Welcome to Noel -  G8GTZ's  - amateur radio and TV pages - yes I've updated it!  My main amateur interest is microwaves and ATV.  I also dabble in video editing, take pictures of steam trains, find time for a family life and am a committed Christian.

Due to loads of unwanted rubbish if you want to contact me you'll have to work it out from  "my first name at my first name and sally diddly dott fishing net"!

The amateur radio and TV reference page - Loads of ATV and microwave related links and not much else!

The G8GTZ  home page - details about  my station and activities etc

The Norfolk VHF/UHF contest group nostalgia pages! - pictures of the group out portable, including when we won VHF Field day in 1982.

Basingstoke Baptist Church - our local church 

Old photographs associated with radio   - Miscellaneous collection of radio related pictures, including photos of Radio Caroline, Veronica & RNI and some very suspicious characters with 19 sets!

Even though I am 400 feet ASL take off is not good to the south as I am at the bottom of the local hill..   I have a reasonable view East round to North.
