Now retired after a career working in the U.K. Electricity Supply Industry as a professional engineer and latterly as an engineering manager.
Operate mostly on CW with some SSB and Data modes. I am a member of FOC, HSC, VHSC, SHSC and the A1 Ops Club. Other radio interests are contesting and home construction. I have recently built the Pic-a-Star all-band 100W SSB/CW transceiver designed by G3XJP and the N2PK Vector Network Analyser (VNA), which is the most useful piece of test gear that I own.
QTH is the rural village of Bramham, located mid-way between Leeds and York. My WAB Area is SE44 in West Yorkshire.
