My Main interests are VHF/UHF DX. First licensed in the early 90's with G7UYO I caught the VHF bug. Weak signal modes of probagation are my main interest and enjoyment. I have recently been active on 144mhz EME and hope to make some improvements in the spring.

If you would like a sked for MS/EME please feel free to contact me m0bkl@yahoo.co.uk

UPDATES

9-02-2014

VHF/UHF Antennas have been down since early January due to the continuious bad spell of wx. Strong gusts reaching over 90mph have been reported locally and its been impossible to operate. 

I ve managed to erect a 5/8 vertical for 28MHZ to enable me operate on 10/12/15m.

25-08-2013

During the summer months i have spent most of my time on 2m working Sporadic E, FSK/MS and EME.

6M was dissappinting for me, hence i removed the 7ele yagi and added a second 2m yagi.

70 cms is still under development, hopefully i should be capable of EME if i can add an amplifier.

4m has been dismantled, should go up next May.

New 2m EME initails added over recent days including HL5QO, JR3REX, SV6KRW, W7MEM, N7NW.

This takes me to 82 initials since the end of January 2013
