The Picture above is of the Byford Radio Room.
Attended Nautical College in 1971, "Passed out as " Radio Officer 1974. Since that date, I have mainly been employed at sea. Apart from 1977 - 1979 when I was employed with "Western Electronics"involved with R and D into various antenna designs, This venture into the "Ham radio gave me the bug,, which has never left.
I had been very active as M/M, mainly working the low bands, ie 160, 1988 - 2000, onboard the Borgny,, (Drill Ship) with a 5/8 wave vertical tx and flat top dipole for rx. both resonant at 1850 khz..
I have not been active on the "Ham bands" since 2000, but now slowly returning to the hobby side of things again. ! I Still have my JRC Complete setup, Challenger Amp, and a couple of Carolina Windoms, monoband beam for 20 ,, plus the good old "DX33" and DX105, but all boxed and waiting for permission to export to Thailand.
