What's it all about?.....
This site is all about
Amateur Radio (ham radio). More specifically it is about my own personal
interests in this great hobby - 50MHz propagation and DXing.
I have held the callsign G8BCG since 1967. My main interest
has always been WEAK SIGNAL VHF and UHF long distance (DX) propagation.
Living and working in the Solomon Islands from 1978 until 1985, using the callsign H44PT, I was hooked on 6m. 50MHz is still my favourite band and pretty much the sole focus of this site.
In my 30+ years in the telecommunications industry I have been fortunate to work throughout the world, including extended periods in Thailand, Australia, Solomon Islands, California and Korea. Great for Ham Radio!
More recently I have been using my project management and technical skills planning and installing VSAT systems for a major bank across Africa from Botswana to Uganda and from Ghana to Seychelles and Mauritius. But not much time for ham radio - Ah well.
I did get on 50MHz for a few hours whilst in Gibraltar -
ZB0/G8BCG see the site hear the sounds.
My trips to Zimbabwe were pretty good too! - Z2/G8BCG - more pictures and sound.
Other pages worth a listen include the
H44 50MHz Firsts page and sound archive
located on my H44PT site and my current Cycle 23 sound archive
on this site.
