Gerry M0VAA  Gerry M0VAA : Club Treasurer.

Gerry is active from home on all HF bands from 80M to 6M (2M due soon).

Reg G3TDH  Reg G3TDH

Now happily retired, Reg is able to pay his favourite hobby the attention it deserves. QRV on all bands from Top to 23cm despite only able to access a tiny garden for aerial erection. He takes part in all the VHF/UHF AC and 80m CC events that he's able to, and until recently the only TTCG member currently on 4m- his favourite VHF band since the days of AM and crystal control.  

He's also managed the odd personal contest winner's certificate on HF CW, and holds DXCCs in all three modes.. 
Terry, G3RKF    Terry G3RKF
Terry can mostly be found on 40m thro 10m CW with regular contest participation including 6m and 80m. Doesn't keep up with the paperwork very well, so hasn't any certificates on the wall, other than for cycling proficiency. Has at long last taken to BPSK and RTTY, with rare excursions onto SSB to chase a new country. Operates regularly from NJ as W2/G3RKF where he is a member of the Cherryville W2CRA repeater club, whilst here a /P rig has started him taking to the hills. 
Other activities include rugby, fly fishing, tennis, foreign languages, history, antiques and putting some modest effort into his New Year Resolutions

Roger was licensed in 1984, following a childhood interest as a SWL. A few years was spent, mainly on HF and in portable VHF contests, with South Manchester Radio Club. After a decade or more of QRT, Roger’s amateur radio interest was rekindled in around 2002 through DF events organised by the Top Band DF Association


In 2009, a partnership with Roger, M0GMG was forged in VHF contesting  following some of the RSGB Tuesday Activity Contests, Since then a moderately good collection of equipment has been assembled.for 6M, 2M and 70cms, and reasonable success gained in the AC events and in PW 2M QRP Contest. A new 6M 6-ele Loop Fed Array (LFA) Yagi is also on the construction list for portable contest operation, designs from G0KSC


Main activity at home is 10M through 70cms, with lower bands used occasionally. In 2012, Roger, dabbled with data modes, but RFI issues remain – notably causing keyboard lock up when on 10M/15M…an inconvenience in data mode!  Aims for 2013 are to improve the home antennas with beams for 10M, 6M, 2M and 70cms and to modify the loop used on lower HF bands, to cover 80M.

G4BEE Logo   Ray G4BEE

First Licensed in 1970 as G8EBK while at school before knuckling down to CW acquiring G4BEE. Still following a career in IT and electronics but looking forward to the approach of retiring and gradually increasing amateur radio activity- currently having a focus on the RSGB Tuesday UKACs. HF activity is a little more sparse, needing enhancement to aerials and  maybe CW skill. Also heard as 9H3BR during trips to Malta with an FT817 and Buddipole. Outside of radio and work,  More info cn be found on Ray's website at http://www.g4bee.net
