Hello and welcome to my Information Page on QRZ. If you are here after having a QSO with me then thank you, or if you are a SWL then all reports are welcome and Eqsl's returned.
I was first licenced in July 1997 as M1CBK and then from November 1999 as M0CRY, after passing the then required 12 WPM Morse Test to gain access to the HF Bands.
I am very Happily married to my wife Dawn, 2E0WTZ, and we live together in Slade Green, North Kent.
we are QRV (80m - 70cm) from our Home Shack.
Transceiver selection is achieved by using Iplus Switches / 3x4 Switch Plus units  /  1 X 4  Remote Coax Switches by W2IHY Technologies.
An external remote mounted Ameritron RCS-8VX 5 port Antenna switch is used for final Antenna selection, connected with Alpha Delta Lightening protection on each port mounted on a common grounded Buss Bar.  The Main Shack feeder for HF + 6M is fed through a grounded Line isolator to prevent RFI problems on the first floor shack witch has no ground connection, all Antenna feeders are grounded externally after the Line Isolator this configuration allows QRO operation with no RF problems in the shack.
Antenna Tuner units selectable are either a manual tune Palstar AT2K or a Palstar HF Auto both capable of 160m - 6m operation.  One of the W2IHY 3x4 Switch plus units makes available to any selected Transceiver either a straight through Bypass connection or a Comet Low pass Filter (54Mhz) or either a Manual or Automatic ATU selection.
 This makes it very easy to select up to any one of 5 Transceivers without needing to swap audio and coax connections and also makes for a neat and tidy installation.
Selectable Transceivers are 
Flex Radio Systems 3000 SDR
Flex Radio Systems 6300 SDR
Kenwood TS590SG
Yaesu FTdX 5000MP
Icom IC-7100
The Alpin 100 1.3KW PEP  HF + 6M Amplifier with it's single Ceramic Tetrode 4CX-800A (GU-74B) is used for QRO operation up to 26dbW (400W ) when required and is available to any selected Radio.
A Heil PR40 Dynamic Microphone is fed into a W2IHY 8 Band EQ and EQplus to provide EQ and level control, which is then distributed to the selected Transceiver by the Iplus units..
Datamode operation, mainly PSK-31 uses HRD DigiMaster DM780 software with an Icom IC- 7100 using a USB Audio Codec, or the Flex Radio Systems Flex 3000 using (VAC) Virtual Audio Cables or the Flex 6300 using (DAX) Digital Audio Exchange built into the Smart SDR software without the need for any external interfaces.  The Kenwood TS590SG is also capable of running Digital modes with out an extrnal interface using a USB audio codec, maximum power used for data modes is around 25 Watts.
Power SDR Version 2.72 and Smart SDR Version 1.4.16 is run on an Intel I7-3770 Quad Core Processor @ 3.4Ghz - Windows 10 / 16 GB Ram to deliver the required CPU performance for various SDR platforms to run simultaneously without latency.
An RF space SDR IQ Receiver is used as an SDR Panadapter connected to the Yaesu FTDX5000MP 9Mhz I.F Output, with SDR Console version 2 providing detailed Waterfall and point and click tuning capability with the Yaesu FTDX5000MP connected as an external Radio.

DMR Operation is available using an Hytera MD-785G and my local DMR Repeater is GB7SE

Yaesu Fusion (C4FM Digital) operation is available using the Yaesu FT991 to connect to a DV4mini dongle used as 70cms Hotspot to connect to reflector FCS001


DStar Operation is available using either a DV Dongle for linking direct to various reflectors or by using the Icom IC-7100 with an ON8JL Babystar UHF Hotspot with TX power set to 1mW and the Icom IC-7100 set to zero percent output with the output terminated into a dummy load.  This allows local connection onto the Network with control commands from the Radio or via my Web Browser

Ham Radio Deluxe full version Windows 10 compatiable is used for Cat control and QSO logging with auto Eqsl and HRD log uploads.
