Amateur Radio - GM0IVQ






My Shack

QSL Cards



McKinlay Home


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 cant 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.

There are more images here.

Find out more about SSTV here or at the Wikipedia page .
