Amateur Radio Station G4IRN - M5S
I will be participating in the CQ World Wide CW Contest from The Seychelles as S79K with GD4XUM, G4PVM and G3WPH. Before and after the contest I hope to be active as S79IRN.
I was invited to attend the World Radio Teamsport Championships (WRTC ) in Italy. I have written about my experience here.
I participated in the RSGB National Field Day (NFD), I have written about the event here.
I have now received a short contest call-sign : M5S
Brian ZL3XDJ has put a video of our 20m QSO here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zlcFDu78zo
I have made some measurements of latency over a 4G link for remote station control. The findings can be found <here>.
I now rent some land about 5 miles from home and have started building a station there. Current station is an Elecraft K3, Expert 1.3K amplifier and Butternut HF2V, all controlled over the 4G network.
I will be operating on November 27th/28th with G3NKC, G4BVY and GD4XUM in CQ World Wide CW in a Multi operator/Two transmitter entry, callsign MD4K from the Isle of Man,
There has been some activity from the new QTH with temporary antennas. I am now actively searching to buy or rent land for a remote station.
I've added a new page - the Public Houses of Shrewsbury town. They need all the support we can give them.
I have recently moved QTH to Shropshire and will not be on the air much over the coming months. I will attempt to get on the air from time to time for various contests.

I am now active on the 60m band using an IC-7300 with 100 Watts output into a modified Butternut HF2V. Nice to see some activitiy on there, especially on CW where some nice conversational QSOs can be had.
