Dave Sergeant


Thank you for accessing my web pages. First a short introduction.

I live in Bracknell, Berkshire, about 35 miles west of London and until retired I was a self employed TV and Video service engineer. I am also a radio amateur, callsign G3YMC, and have had an active interest in the hobby for 40 years. This site contains information on all of these activities as follows.

Amateur Radio

Although I have operated on most amateur radio bands up to 70cm, my main interests have always been 160m and hf cw operation. Some years ago I was active on the 136kHz band, and I have included a number of pages about my activities and general information on the band. I am no longer active there, and much if the information is somewhat dated, but kept for reference.

K2 transceiver

I was also sometimes active on the UK 5MHz experimental allocation, now part of our full licence.  See my Fivemegs pages.

I was also active on the UK 501-504kHz experimental band. See my 500kHz pages.

My main amateur activities at present are on HF CW working QRP with an Elecraft K2 transceiver.   See my QRP pages, which I hope will show you how easy it is to achieve excellent results in amateur radio with low power CW.

EMC problems for the amateur including powerline adaptors.
