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.
I use an Icom 9100 ( fully loaded ),excellent radio ....thank you Icom.Not active at the moment on HF purely spending the little spare time I have on UKAC VHF contesting.
I use a Clarke Scam pump up mast to hold a 10 element beam with rotator at 50 feet for the 144 mhz band, 20 element beam for 70cms, 67 element wimo for 23 cms. and 6 element LFA for 50 mhz.I am very interested in taking part seriously in the RSGB UKACC weekly VHF contests , I cover all of the VHF bands with the ICOM 9100 including 23cms and am slowly developing the station to improve my scores. Great Fun and a great bunch of people who take part.
I do still spend some time on a small amount of home construction and would like to develop the station to cover SHF 2.4Ghz and 10Ghz....... however one step at a time.
I am looking forward to seeing what can be achieved in the 2015 season.
