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 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 Diamond X7000. This has wonderful gain on 2m, 70cm and 23cm and is mounted above the beam. My home QTH is around 800ft (approx 299m) ASL, so I have great take off advantage. When it comes to mobile operation, I enjoy the iCOM IC 7000 transceiver, which is a wonderful piece of kit. I'm very much an iCOM fan. Well, I look forward to catching up with you in the future, and so will leave the biography at that for now.
Member of the RSGB and the North West Repeater Group.
FOR THE LOVE OF HAM RADIO iCOM
HAPPY QSOing, AND KEEP RADIO ALIVE!!!
