From the 5th July until the 31st July 2013, I will be using the special callsigns MV6MMM or 2V0YYY to celebrate the centenary of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB).
Hi, my name is Mike and I've been licensed since 2010.
I also hold the English callsign M6MMM and the Scottish callsign MM6MMM. These are not special event or vanity callsigns but callsigns issued by the UK Amateur Radio Licensing Authority. When conditions are favourable, you will often find me working QRP, with these callsigns.
My home QTH is Stoke-on-Trent, located in between Manchester to the North West of England and Birmingham in the Midlands
My homebase rig is the Yaesu FT-950 and I use an IMAX-2000 CB antenna, with ground plane kit for 17 thru 10 metres. My favorite band is 15m and can often be found calling cq and whenever conditions are favourable, working QRP.
My grid locator is IO83WA and my WAB Square is SJ84
Apologies to those operators waiting for QSL cards. I'm a long way behind but will try and catch up as soon as possible.

I'm a big fan of the Summits on the Air (SOTA) programme and can often be found operating from summits all around the United Kingdom. My portable station consists of a Yaesu FT-857 home brew dipole for VHF/UHF, also I have been known to use a collinear /P. For HF, I use the Prowhip Fishing Pole antenna or the Antron-99 CB antenna. For power, I carry a 20Ah sealed lead acid battery (SLAB) weighing about 6 Kilos.
