After nearly 17 years of been 2E1FVS, I have finally (11-March-2014) upgraded to a Full Advanced Licence. I shall miss using my old 2E1 call, but times change!
I currently still have my old 2E1 call. I don't think I'm quite ready to surrender it just yet!!
I only have a small station, a Yaesu FT-920, with antennas which have all been homemade. I like playing with different antenna's for the different HF bands, so I am often changing what I use for antenna's, and bands I operate on. Pictures below of a few creations.
I did have for many years, a 40M 2ele Vertical Array, this is not in use at my QTH... for now.
A member of the Finningley Amateur Radio Society (FARS) which hold the calls GØGHK + G7HAH, so you may find me operating the club station.

A little history for those interested!
I've always been around Amateur Radio since I was a youngster. My father, and my grandfather were both licenced, which makes me the 3rd generation of Ham in the Hotchin family.
Exactly how it came about I can't remember, but I was enrolled on to the Novice RAE at the Huddersfield Tech Collage. I was trained up by Gerald, G3SDY and passed the Exam in 1997. After I was issued my call I had the use of my Dad's Kenwood TH47E 70cms handheld, and I was a regular on the repeaters for a while. Not quite sure what caused it, probably due to things like, Beer, YL's, and things with wheels, I spent a few years QRT, again I owe it to my Dad, who rekindled the interest, after rekindling his own interest in the hobby, we've both been back QRV from August/September 2007. I shall be forever endebted to my Father, John G4ATA, for introducing me to the hobby, and his help to keep me QRV.
Circa 2009/2010 at G4ATA's QTH, probably chasing some DX on the lowbands!
The temporary homebrew 3ele 21MHz beam. Wire elements, fishing rod elements, PVC Pipe boom. My MMANA claimed 11.6dBi forward gain, and a F/B of 15.1dBi, if it was actually anything near that in the real world, I'll be surprised!
As of March 2016 I started looking at going /M as an alternative to battling with local electrical noise from the home QTH.
Another big interest of mine is the Classic Mini, I have a 1986 Austin Mini. Sadly the Mini is currently off the roads and hibernating in the garage awaiting yet more work, I've been chasing Iron Oxide around it for a number of years now!
