I have been interested in radio since the late 70's and spent several years as a 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 maritime port and very close to the beautiful landscape of the ' New Forest ' National park. Due to antenna restrictions at my home QTH I currently run in the semi stealth mode. I also frequently work mobile / portable at several nearby locations in the Forest or by the sea front .
