About Me

30+ years liscence holder of the call G6AOS, I first became repeater keeper of GB3FC in 1996, I first started listening to Amateurs in the middle 1960's - I discovered 160m and the local marine coast station on my 2 band transistor radio "Tranny!" as they were knick named in the Swinging Sixtys..

For more info, and pictures look me up on QRZ.com

Best 73's perhaps we will speak on the air soon.

Regards Steve

Has anyone Considered (or tried even) using a circular coil of enamelled wire as a antena?
To Explain.. Taking a OLDER 28 inch tube telly apart, I saved the de-gouzing coil thinking would it make a simple form of loop antenna.. Well Tests it tuned up, as well as appeared ok listening on 80 / 40m (not the best in the world but a small and cheap antenna) with about 60 watts I managed contacts to Ei and along the south coast. I discovered just how directional it was, but for a portable antenna with height it worked...
