Hi fellow radio hams! Just a short paragraph about myself. Im 51yrs old (born May 1964), I am licenced since 1989 when I passed the radio theory exam and was issued my present class'A' callsign in 1990 after passing the morse code test (12 wpm). I am also the holder of an M.F Maritime radio licence issued in 1998. I monitor locally 145.450mhz and 433.450mhz (both on FM) and also the local voice repeaters (mostly IRLP nodes 5883 and 5355). On HF I normally operate on 28.450mhz and 24.963mhz. . I am a member of the Tipperary Amatuer Radio Group (T.A.R.G), (for more club information visit www.ei7trg.ie ) and I regularly contribute to a local net with club members on 2 metres and 4 metres (70.2625mhz and 70.375mhz) FM. When not in the shack or near a radio, I operate on Echolink (Node 817975).
My radio station photograph which is attached consists of the following:- (1) HF:- Kenwood TS480HX, Yaesu FT707, FC707 atu, FP707 psu, FV707 external vfo,Yaesu FC107 atu,Turner Plus 3B mic and a HK707 straight morse code key. (2 )VHF 145mhz:- Kenwood TM241E and a Yaesu FT221R with a YM33 mic.(3 )4M-70mhz:- Philips PRM80 and Motorola MC Micro. (4) UHF-433mhz:-Yaesu FT8100R. Also in the shack picture are two marine VHF radios, to monitor marine channels CH16 and CH67 respectively. If you require a QSL please send directly and include a Self Addressed Envelope with appropiate cost of postage (please do not attach a stamp on the SAE as its not accepted here). I also reply to all QSLs sent via bureau (NO eQSLs).
While ham radio is my main hobby, I really enjoy watching most of the competitive sports. Gaelic Hurling and Gaelic Football as well as Soccer are among my favourites. When not on the radio I really enjoy following the teams I have supported since childhood.
So thats it for now ,thank you for reading this,take care...73s.
