Nick G4FAL

Hi, welcome to my website and thank you for visiting.


I have had an Amateur Radio licence since I was a youth, which unfortunately is rather a long time! I started with the class B callsign G8JGY from 1974. I moved on to class A with the call G4FAL in 1976 when I passed the 12 words per minute morse test, which was required then.


I am an Electrical Engineer; a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology - the UK Professional Institution for Electrical Engineers. I am also joint owner/director of a control systems engineering company - Riverside Automation Limited, which is also based in Sheffield.


I am a member of the Sheffield Amateur Radio Club.

Also I belong to WACRAL, (the World Association of Christian Radio Amateurs and Listeners), with membership number 393.


V4/G4FAL and V47CD

I operated again in 2009 from St Kitts in the Caribbean from Thursday 12 March to Tuesday 17 March. During the trip I was active in the RSGB Commonwealth Contest with the callsign V47CD.


The RSGB Commonwealth Contest is for British Commonwealth Countries and Mandated Territories only - see the RSGB HF Contest Website  for full details and contest rules. The contest coincides with the British Commonwealth Day each year.





I have also used the Malawi callsign 7Q7NT.


QSL details are on my news page. G4FAL, V4/G4FAL, V47CD and 7Q7NT logs are sent to LoTW so if you only want confirmation for DXCC then please don't send your QSL.



Sheffield City is located in the centre of England and is about 160 miles north of the capital London.

I am located in a Victorian Suburb of Sheffield, about 2 miles west of the city centre, called Nether Edge.



From 2010 I have been operating in major contests from Theddlethorpe in Lincolnshire. Here I am using temporary mobile masts for a field day style setup.


QSL details

Please QSL via the bureau. I will be pleased to send you a card also via the bureau.

If you want a card direct then please send a self-addressed envelope with 1 IRC or US$2 for postage, direct to my home address, and I will send a card directly to you.
