Located one mile back from the cliff top SE of Lands End, this is the view to the SW and long path to ZL / VK. It's a superb radio site all round, with the horizon only obstructed by a few degrees to N/NE.

The mast is 40 ft HD Versatower and carries antennas for all 9 HF bands. 160m is a 38ft top loaded Tee hung off the side of the mast. Mast is shunt fed for 80m. 40m & 30m are sloping dipoles from near the top of mast to head height.Since August 2011 20m > 10m bands are covered by a Tennadyne T6

Low bands Rx aerial is a K9AY 350ft away.

Obtained the call sign G3XRJ in 1965 while studying to be a Radio Officer in the Merchant Navy. Came ashore in 1970 and worked at Portishead Radio until 1975 when I moved back to my home location to work at Lands End Radio/GLD until 1998. Amateur radio interest has always centred on 80m DX while keeping an ear on 160/40m, CW & SSB.
