The Martlesham DX & CG was founded off the
back of a group of keen UK contesters who wanted to
do a serious effort in CQWW contests - WPX and CQWW
SSB. Bob Carpenter, G4BAH, started the station with a
small collection of equipment and with several others
in the team, built a very competitive radio contest station.
Like some other stations in the multi-multi
category, the whole thing is done
"field-day" style. The aerial farm is built
up over the preceding two weeks and then taken down
on the Monday afterwards.
The M6T and M7T station was
originally based in Suffolk (SFK) and was about 10
miles west from Felixstowe Port on the East cost of
England (JO02). The WAB square was TM24 for those
operations. For M8T the station moved a few
miles north of Ipswich in Suffolk, with the WAB TM25.
In October 1999 and 2000 M6T was again used for
the SSB leg of CQWW, in the same locations as for M8T.
Bob has been keen on VHF operation
for many years and has recently restarted VHF operation as G0KPW,
The QSL manager for G0KPW and M6T, M7T and M8T is
now Andy Cook,
G4PIQ. All queries and QSLs for this call should go
