Amateur Radio - GM0IVQ
Hi there, and welcome to my
little space on the WWW for
amateur radio. I have been away for a
while and have only recently got back into things. The links on the left give some other pages
about me and amateur radio.
I originally started as a
short wave listener in 1978 as ARS43474
.The RSGB used to issue SWL calls for
folk like me! The “A” meant that I was
just a boy! It all started as a result
of an interested physics teacher in school.
Unfortunately, I can’t remember his callsign. That was Eastwood High School
when it was a senior secondary. They
had an amateur radio club in those days with a shack away up at the top of
the school. There are a few of my listener reports here.
In 1980 I passed my RAE at the
Glasgow Nautical College
and became GM6AWE.
There are one or two QSL cards here.
Morse took ages but I
eventually passed the test in Ayr and became
GM0IVQ in 1990. Not many QSL cards
done so far! Click
here to see one or two. There are
more in a set on Flickr (click
here for them)
Experimenting with SSTV
I have been trying out some of the data modes recently. Here are some of the most recently received SSTV images on 14.230MHz. I have been using Digital Master 780
. This is part of the Ham Radio Deluxe
suite. The images are automatically uploaded by ftp as they are received.
