About G3YPP

G3YPP Current Shack

I was first licensed as G3YPP in 1969 at the age of 16, and have been continuously licensed ever since.  I have been a member of the RSGB since 1967.

In the past, I have worked all bands 160m to 13cm and for several years ran an unattended crossband packet node on 2m and 70cm.  I have also operated on RTTY since the mid 1980s.  I now also operate on data modes including PSK31, PSK63 and FT8.

Other permanent callsigns previously held by me include GW3YPP, DA1MT and ON8JA (ON8JA has since been reissued to Alexander whose QTH is 20km S of Brussels)

In 2012 I got back on the air at a new QTH after a break of about 15 years and am now active on HF SSB, CW and data modes. This includes 5 MHz.  I also have a NoV for experimentation on 146-147 MHz


HF 100 Watts, IC-7600 with LDG IT-100 ATU.
Aerials include a 9m vertical Rybakov antenna with radials and a MyAntennas EFHW 80-10 at 30 feet

I also have an Icom IC-7000 which I use on HF/VHF/UHF when operating portable from my caravan or boat.  Details of my boat are at

For me, if you are outside UK, you are DX :) - starting again from zero with all DXCC etc. and CW is a bit rusty :)
