Hello and thank you for looking me up on QRZ.COM. I have had a strong interest in radio since 1979 and gained my Ham certificate in 1989. I live in a small market town called Leek, which is just 10 miles to the North of the City of Stoke On Trent. The countryside and the surrounding area is beautiful, especially if you enjoy out door activities such as rock climbing, walking, camping and mountain biking as Leek is located on the edge of the Peak District National Park, offering breath taking views. I operate an iCOM IC 7800 Mk11 for HF with a Heil PR780 mic, and for HF, VHF / UHF and D Star I use the iCOM IC 9100 with iCOM SM 50 mic. Antenna wise I operate via a 3 element SteppIR on HF.This is mounted on a tower which can be raised to 14mtrs above the ground. On VHF / UHF I operate via the Create logperiodic CLP 5130-1. This has wonderful gain from 50MHz through to 1300MHz and is mounted above the HF beam. Also have a Diamond X7000 for 2m, 70cm and 23cm vertical transmission. My home QTH is around 800ft (approx 299m) ASL, so I have great take off advantage. When it comes to mobile operation, I work the iCOM IC 5100, IC 7000 and IC 7100 transceivers, which are wonderful pieces of kit. I'm very much an iCOM fan, although I have the option to run the Kenwood TS 480 HX if I wish to run serious power when mobile on HF. Well, I look forward to catching up with you in the future, and so will leave the biography at that for now.
