Fully Licensed since 1989/90 , due to career committments I have been away from the hobby for many years . Started to get an interest back in the hobby a few years ago when I built the Elecraft K2 /100 and the KAT100 ATU.Having never used CW as a mode I am still working hard at getting my skill level upto 30wpm in order to really use this fascinating mode in a more regular and serious way.
My main Rig was the Icom 756 Pro3 which I have recently changed to the new Icom 7100. Excellent radio thank you Icom.,I am currently using a dipole orientated NNE to SSW sloping from 60 feet from the Southern end to 30 feet at the Northern end.This aerial has a 100 foot top and is fed with balanced line feeder.
I use a Clarke pump up mast to hold a 6 element beam with rotator at 30 feet for the 144 mhz band.
I joined the Sheffield Amateur Radio Club in late 2011 and have been very inspired by the expertise within the club and its very dynamic approach to promoting all aspects of the hobby and inspiring members to be as active as possible on all of the bands.
Visit our website and see what we are currently doing.Things move fast in this club, when current plans are fulfilled this year the facilities offered will be outstanding allowing the membership to have access to everything that is needed to get the best out of the hobby.
