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 Icom 9100. Excellent radio ....thank you Icom.,I am currently using a dipole for HF 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 Scam pump up mast to hold a 5 element Quad beam with rotator at 50 feet for the 144 mhz band and suitable antennae for the other bands.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 joined the Sheffield Amateur Radio Club in late 2011 and was 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.I have left the club now and devote much of my spare time to the contesting.I have recently joined a suitable contest group to pursue this.
