After nearly 17 years of been 2E1FVS, I have finally (11-March-2014) upgraded to a Full Advanced Licence. I shall miss 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 mainly verticals of some sort, until 2014, I have been playing with different antenna's for the higher HF bands, 15 & 17M.
21MHz 3ele mono band wire beam, @ 7(ish)M
18MHz, Wire Moxon @7(ish)M
14MHz Vertical Dipole
I did have for many years a 40M 2ele Vertical Array, this is not in use at my QTH... for now.
I do like to play about with antennas, so I am often changing what I use for antenna's.
I've picked up CW this year, I'm getting there, but still apologies if there was a lot of errors!

You can find me on Skype :martin.2e1fvs
If you need or would like a QSL from me, please QSL DIRECT to the above address.
I am not a member of the RSGB so I can not send or receive cards via the buro.
If I require a QSL for my own collection/awards, I shall send a card out DIRECT with return postage.
73 and hope to see you in my log!
M0HOM Station Photo's
The homebrew 3ele 21MHz beam (with a 7MHz vertical that insisted it be included in the photo).
Wire elements, fishing rod elements, PVC boom.
My modelling software claims 11.6dBi forward gain, and a F/B of 15.1dBi, if it's actually anything near that in the real world, I'll be surprised!

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.
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!
