First licensed in 1979, I was mostly interested in 2m and did a lot of things with the Worthing Club. After a while family life intruded and I became less active and finally let my licence lapse in 2002.
In early 2010 an interest in the high altitude balloon projects which use 70cms for telemetry rekindled my interest and I got my licence re-activated. Since then I've become active with the Camb-Hams and started doing a lot of portable operating since I couldn't have antennas at my (rented) QTH.
More recently I've bought a house and have started re-building my shack.
Current equipment includes FT-920, FT-817ND, TS790E, ATS-3B, KG-UV6D and Clansman RT-320 plus various ATUs etc and a SignaLink-USB for data modes. Current antennas are a tri-band rigid dipole for 10-15-20, a G7FEK parallel Marconi for the HF low bands, an End Fed HalfWave for 60m, a tri-band colinear for 2m/70cm/6m and (on a SCAM-12) beams for 70cms, 2m and 6m.
I'm also a SOTA activator although it's a long way to anything that might be called a summit from Cambridge.
I QSL via the Bureau or by post if return postage is supplied. I am slowly getting my paper logs onto LotW as I get enough round tuits.
My logs are also on Clublog and you can request QSL cards via OQRS (Online QSL Requests) from https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/G8TMV
