My interest in amateur radio came from a start as a SWL when I was about 7 years old. Homebrewer soon after ... first with 2 valve short wave receiver using acorn valves. Now use a mix of homebrew and commercial gear and operate only data modes. Currently BARTG President and found on HF in a few RTTY contests every year, hopefully more now that I am retired from full time work.
60ft Versatower and Optibeam OB11-5 in my back garden ... up again with permanent permission .. thanks to the Welsh Assembly! Other antennas are an inverted V for 80M and a quarter wave vertical for 40M.
New PST61 rotator and head unit also fitted and after 25 years a new 4CX1000 for the HB amp in place. Just need some decent propagation now ........
Currently using an FT1000D in the shack and a TS590 as backup and for trips. These include Swaziland 3DA0ET in 2013 and 7QAA in 2015. More DXpedition trips working RTTY and PSK are hoped for .. all offers considered!
