My dad worked for Pye before joining the army as a radio officer in 1938 he got though it and i was born in 1950 he gave me a diode and bits to make a radio . I was a a boy of 7 years old . Later at 12 years old i found a copy of Practical wireless and found a circuit for a 4 valve trf rx i even rewound the mains transformer , it all worked after some messing about.. Leeds was a wonderful place to find parts with Alpha radio Mac of Morley and RSC many others too , sadly all gone . I have used 19 sets hro ar88 r1155 modified pye bantams and done a lot of listening and watching tv dx . So in 1984 i was allbut forced to do the RAE .So i did and did a bit of operating for a few years and i met some great ops and a lot of bad ops, so i went off txing in 1989 . However ime now retired and although not as fit as i was , ime rebuiding my radio interest , I dont like hf bands much as i dont have the space for a sterber curtain, a pole with a few yagis is more to me and my neighbors liking . Radio is a fun hobby not a way of life .Call me if you hear me especially if you are 4000 km away. I now have the mast fitted to brackets at the rear of my house also fitted a scanner discone and new tv antenna to the chimney . Next job is to fit rotator , stub mast and my 55 ele tonna for 23 cms . I will use fsj 4-50 cable for 23 cm and 2m 4meter 5 ele fed with ldf 2-50 now waiting for stable wx.All nuts bolts and washers are a4 stainless steel including u bolts and all bolts on the rotor. 4m amp nearly finished 2m pa gs35b coming on fine all antennea modified for qro. wx is poor so next spring. also modified my ht supply witth soft start and swiched output for 2 , 3 and 4kv @ 4a
