Married to Susie, who's from 9M2. She has no interest in amateur (ham) radio - "Why does our house have to look like a ship?" - she has asked in the past. Visit Nick & Susie's page and see our pictures. Arrggggh!!

Originally licensed as G8KLY in the early 1970’s, G4GCP in 1976, then used EA7/G4GCP for a while, until being issued with EA7JXH in July 2015.

The Station is at our house in the Málaga Region of Andalucia, Southern Spain (locator: IM76). See a view of our village, a fairly typical 'Andalusian white village'. Full station details at EA7JXH.

A Kenwood TS-480 HX was added to the station, as the main transceiver for HF and Six, in December 2012. Since then I have been searching to find all the information that is available on this excellent little transceiver, which I have consolidated in one place and share with you here.

My EA Callsign was something I had put off obtaining for far too long. However, it turned out to be a much less daunting task than I had expected. To encourage other UK Class A licence holders, who may share my previous fears, I have recorded how I went about it, to help them on their way. You can find the information here.

Previously, regular visits to South East Asia led to operating as 9M2/G4GCP:
