Welcome to the amateur radio website of G0VQY. My personal name is Penn, I was born in 1969 in the London Borough of Lambeth. I now live in a small fishing town called Brixham which is located in the picturesque district of Torbay Devon.
I have been disabled since the age of 16. In 1986 whilst out with friends, I dived into an outdoor swimming pool and hit my head on the bottom of the pool. Unfortunately I suffered a serious spinal-cord injury which rendered me unable to walk and thus resulted in me having to use a wheelchair permanently.
It's very important to me that my disability doesn't stop me from doing the things I love. Obviously there are activities which are probably completely out of the question, rock climbing, mountain biking ETC, however there are lots of things I can do. I was able to take up my childhood hobby of fishing once again. I was into CB radio many years ago and took it back up again after having my accident. Obviously amateur radio followed on from the CB.
Please do not send me paper QSL cards because I do not collect them anymore and I do not send cards because it's just too expensive
