Thanks for looking me up, My interest in radio began at school in 1970 when my metal work teacher Gordon Day (G3ZWX) gave me the opportunity to build a crystal set. I remember being amazed that I could hear radio stations using no batteries or power at all. I've been hooked ever since. I'm not too interested in communicating via the internet, and the various digital modes seem to be a solution looking for a problem, so not for me! I prefer just one aerial communicating with another!

My current station includes a Kenwood TS2000, 2 x Yaesu FT857D's, and an Acom 1000 amplifier. Aerials are a Cushcraft MA5B & HB9CV for 2m on a 10 metre high galvanised tower, Homebrew loop at approx. 10m, and a X200 vertical for 2m and 70cms. Also not forgetting my Wireless set No.19 Mk3. I enjoy operating portable, and particularly the Lighthouses and Cashota programmes. My other interests are petrol powered Bikes, Karts, Cars, and anything as fast as possible. My WAB square is SE31.

  Thank you to everyone who called GB1WH from December to January ;)
