Had a crystal set in the 60s, then got on to legal FM CB from around 1981, and bought a FRG7 receiver for shortwave listening, from the Amateur radio exchange in Ealing, around 1983, Martin Lynch worked there !!

First licenced in 1985 as G1PBZ, then in Sept 1986 passed the Morse test at the Harlow rally, and obtained my current callsign.

 Still playing with  CW, and trying to improve, so if you hear me, be gentle and try and work me !! (I normally use the QRP / FISTS frequencies on  HF, also  2m  144.050  / 144.058 and 6m 50.090. I have two straight keys, a HI-MOUND HK-708, used on the FT897, and one of those lovely CZECH ARMY keys for the FT950.

Plus an HW40HP OCFD strung around the attic, as flat 'U'   I also have a YAESU FT-897D + LDG AT-897 PLUS, used mostly on digimodes, ant used is the indoor OCFD.

I ALSO HAVE A 5 ELEMENT ZL SPECIAL (MOONRAKER) 2m BEAM, AND A SECOND 6m HALO. (MOONRAKER)  FOR MY PORTABLE OPERATIONS. (WAB CONTESTS)  I also have a Quansheng 2m/70cm handy.

I HAVE NOW BOUGHT A SOTABEAM 3 BAND  (20M / 40M / 80M) LINK DIPOLE PLUS A 7m  TELESCOPIC POLE and LI-PO BATTERY FOR PORTABLE HF WORK.

MOST OF MY SHACK ACTIVITY IS ON  JT65 /JT9. BUT I ALSO USE : PSK / RTTY / OLIVIA / FELD HELL / CONTESTIA ETC. POWER IS NORMALLY BETWEEN 5w - 30w. But QRP is what I prefer ! (I ALSO LIKE TO RUN WSPR WHEN I CAN) I  TAKE PART IN THE RSGB UKACs, EVERY MONTH ON 2m / 70cms and 6m, for FRARS my local radio club.
