About

First licensed back in 1979 as GW8FXM. Member of GW6GW and sill an associate member. I was very interested in Amateur TV back in those days and RTTY (odd combination I hear you say). and was licences as GW6AJR/T. Operated mainly on 70cm 405 line monochrome using a converted Pye UHF base station.

I have always been fascinated with 6 Metres but only became really active again in 2001 where my first contact was with “Beacon Bob”, VE1YX.

Elected to the UKSMG Committee as Secretary, later stood down to become Webmaster after the sudden death of Dave, G1JDU to whom I owe so much. Currently a Committee Member still and also Webmaster, Merchandise Manager and Awards Manager.

I have recently become a member of CDXC.

I have one current PGP key which can be downloaded from most internet keyservers. I usually use e.g. pgp.mit.edu. Searching for David Toombs or G8FXM should find it. The key, IDs and fingerprints are below as follows:
