All about the activities of G6CSY; including a contest blog and contest results, photographs from the past, modes operated, callsigns activated, some of the amateur radio awards that I am chasing, and annual activity stats. I have also included a webpage on how to convert a logbook stored in Excel spreadsheet format, in to .ADIF format suitable for uploading in to a DXLab DXKeeper logbook.
For 15 years, the location of the family summer holiday. Usually 2 weeks self-catering in Granville Road.
I am the UK Chile Head, with a deep love of all chile peppers, be they large or small, hot to sweet. As well as growing them, I also cook with them. The highlight of the website though, is the "Chile Pepper Database". With thousands of varieties listed and hundreds of photographs, it is a labour of love spanning many years of work!
Before handguns were totally banned in the U.K., I used to very much enjoy target shooting with a Standard Wartime Commercial variant of a C96 Broomhandle Mauser. As well as researching it's history and the timeline of it's evolution, I also developed different loads and tried to track down films and T.V. programs where the distinctive Broomhandle Mauser had appeared.
Photographs of some of the many mushrooms and toadstools encountered on by cycle rides and walks through the woods and lanes of the local countryside.
Since the very early years I have been on the Internet with a website. In those days I made the mistake of including my e-mail address on a website page. Years later and that harvested e-mail address has appeared on dozens of spammers 'mailing lists'. The result used to be an inbox with around 200-300 spam e-mails every day. These days filters keep it down to around 10-15 spam e-mails. Here I detail some of the $BILLIONS$ I have 'won', as well as cars, gold bars, computers, football tickets, oilfields and houses!
The stats from several playlists that appear on my iPod Classic. After rebuilding my computer, the stats have all been zero'd after reloading iTunes. Suggestions for artists, albums and tracks to listen to are most welcomed.
