Hi, Thanks for looking me up, I have been interested in all forms of radio communications most of my life and it still amazes me. I have now taken to doing most of my HF operating outdoors with /portable and/mobile on my local local beach and have lots of fun working Longpath DX I am also a member of Summits On The Air group.search www.flickr.com/g7oem photostream for pictures.

Throughout the 90s I got very interested in satellites and worked the World on Oscars 10 and 13. I also worked most of the Leo sats and on several ocasions worked the MIR Space Station and had qso's with Commander Alexandr Volkov U5MIR, He sent me several QSL cards that I still treasure, but it got even better, Commander VolKov came to Preston Polytech to give a lecture and I managed to get an invite to the lecture and got to meet Mr Volkov and had a good chat with him (just me and him) it was a very proud moment for me and still is. How good is it to meet and shake hands with a man who lived in Space for 9 months.These are some of my pictures below.
