I love pushing the limits of propagation, designing building and air testing new antennas to give that extra dB or so, that will allow me to work some marginal opening to a far flung part of the world.
Currently I have worked over 257 Countries on 160 Metres and 148 on 6 Metres with a total country score of 340 worked on all bands.
I'm fascinated with Propagation and have found the 6 metre band to be a real eye opener to the way that the sun drives our ionosphere. My biggest thrill was working W7GJ via moon bounce on this band.
I am a member of the First Class Operator's Club with my love of CW and a member of the Chiltern DX Club and UK DX foundation. The CDXC sponsor Dxpedition and promote interest in all forms of Dxing.
Over the past 10 years I have been lucky enough to travel to remote and exotic parts of the world to play Ham Radio, click on Dxpeditions above to see where I have been.
I live a busy working life running my own companies, Nevada Communications and Nevada music, but I still find plenty of time to be fully involved in the hobby !
