I have been interested in radio since the late 70's and spent several years as a keen SWL before passing the Radio Amateurs Exam in 1982 at the age of 16 . I still spend most of my time listening rather than talking ! Aside from Amateur Radio I'm also interested in utility and broadcast listening.
My Home QTH is near to the City of Southampton which is famous for its busy port / docks and very close to the New Forest National park. Due to antenna restrictions at my QTH I currently run in the stealth mode at Home. I also frequently work mobile / portable at several nearby locations in the Forest or by the sea front .

My other interests include Music - I play and record using Analogue Synthesisers , Drum machines , electric guitars and Bass . If I have any spare time left ! I also enjoy Digital photography .

Any reports from SWL's would be very welcome via eQSL many TNX
