    Hello,

    Yes, I am. My callsign is G6PJT, bound to be others, surely?

    Regards to you both.

    Hmmmm... Looks like I am one of the few PROPER hams on here then, looking at the call signs ( he says with a sniff sticking his nose in the air :Rofl1: )

    G4VEL, QTHR, active on 80, 20, 15, 10, 2 and VERY rarely 70cm

    Did run GB7TDG for many years but closed it down about 8 years ago

    Anyone want my WAB numbers or square ( TL88 Norfolk ) happy to arrange a sked :BigGrin:

    Seems like I can raise my nose a bit higher as my callsign is a bit older than yours! Not as active as I used to be, but I still take part in Top Band (160m) Direction Finding. In factI was out yesterday on my 65th birthday slipping around in muddy woods and getting ripped to bits in the brambles! My family do believe I'm quite mad but I'm not ready for the Sunday papers and slippers for a long time yet!
    I passed my RAE in 1982 as G6HIR and did my Morse Test at the North Foreland BT Station in Kent, (an Asda now stands on the site).
    Is the RAE and Morse what you mean by proper ?

    What an absolute bugger !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was G6HML !!!! We must have passed the same RAE but you gotr your application in a day before me !:Rofl1:
    I remember I took the exam in December, got the results around February and the callsign did not arrive until the beginning of May.. I was an absolute plague to all the other licence holders until it arrived !

    M0DWQ here ( or drinks whiskey quickly )

    Must admit there is a higher number of licenced amateurs on here compared with other forums. The MCCs chair and his XYL are both licenced

    Been puzzling over the fitting of a High Sierra HF screwdriver antenna on my coachbuilt van for a while. Any fellow funsters cracked this problem?

    Well Jaws, We've turned out to be a couple of "Johnny come latelys".
    Waiting now for a G3*** to pop up!





    I think your question has been answered?
