Welcome to UK Amateur Radio Station G6AFY

My name is Chris and my station is situated in Ashford, Kent in South East England, about 10km west of Dover. Locator square is JO01KD.

I am mostly active on 70cm but currently hoping to drum up local activity on 23cm. I am also QRV on HF and that is a more recent venture for me. 80m is my favourite band.

I made my first transmission at 1200 on 14th February, 1981 with Les, G8MKU, who is sadly no longer with us.

The image is of John, G6RAD who was my Dad. Here he is risking all fitting my first proper aerials to our chimney way back in the early 80s!
