My QTH is at the southern tip of the Shetland Islands almost at sea level, beside a tidal pool, which is ideal for radio work and great for wildlife.

                                                                                   

Made up of more than 100 islands, 15 of which are inhabited with a population of approx 23000 in total and positioned at 60° north.

I enjoy DX'ing and chasing special event stations. As a small team in Shetland we run several event stations throughout the year, Mills on the Air, Lighthouse Weekend and also from an ROC bunker.

I also participate in the Air Ambulance Week in September supporting the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) based in Perth. (https://www.scaa.org.uk)

                                                                                  

I aim to do some portable work around the Island throughout the summer. I use my Yaesu 450D fed into two mobile whips in a dipole configeration, one for 20 mtrs and one for 40 mtrs, on a tripod which extends to 15ft (wind permitting !!)

                                                                                  

I have included some wildlife pictures below. The seals and the otter were taken just outside my cottage and the puffins were at Sumburgh Head Light House.

                                                                       

                                                                                               

My rig is a Yaesu FT 450D fed into a Hustler 5 Band Vertical with radials. I also find the 450D is ideal for portable or mobile operation from the car or operating from place to place such as Lighthouses on the air, Mills on the air etc.

If you hear my call please come back to me. Hope to hear you on the Air.

QSL direct with the usual SAE for UK or $2 overseas or by eQSL. No Bureau please
