G3VFP AT QSL.NET
|Hi, and welcome to
my qsl.net site. I entered this fantastic hobby by accident sometime in
1960 when tuning around what was known as the "trawler" ( fishing) band on
my dad's radio. I came across a couple of guys talking to each other, and
I had discovered 160 metres or good old "Top Band". In 1964 I passed my
radio amateurs exam whilst at college, and two years later in 1966, I
passed the morse test to gain my "A" licence. Years of prolific home
brewing followed, which slowed somewhat due to other commitments. But
still today I lay my hand on the soldering iron quite often. I guess that
introduction into radio really forged what I was to do for my career, and
since leaving college I have worked in servicing, designing, marketing,
sales, and management, all within the electronic arena. At 56 yrs old now,
with a son, Damien, in college studying computing technology, my wife
Trish says " Ham radio ! I can take it or leave it!!. Hahahahahaha! well I
guess that means she has supported me in my hobby since those early days,
whilst still finding time to organise the home, and enjoy her hobbies, and
business activities too.
Amateur radio has given me an insight into the world, and its peoples, which I would probably never have gained by other means, and likely as not I will take my gear with me when I pass over to the greatest of dx locations when the supreme being calls upon me.
I intended to add some interesting stuff to this site as time goes by, but my home site in the UK has taken up quite a lot of time, and difficult to change now :-), and it has quite a lot of information, software for PSK,HELL,SSTV,RTTY, etc etc and I hope you find the time to call in and visit.
Take care out there, and God Bless.
