Thanks for looking me up, my interest in radio began at school in 1970 when my metal work and radio technology 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 TS480HX, Kenwood TS2000, 2 x Yaesu FT857Ds, and an Acom 1000 amplifier. Aerials are a Cushcraft MA5B and HB9CV for 2m on a 10 metre high galvanised tower, 40 metre dipole 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. 

Once again my intention is to operate GB1WH from December to January. Please support Wakefield Hospice and give me a call ;-)

If you hear me operating portable, then I'll probably be using this setup:

FT857D, LDG Z-100 plus ATU, and BHI Speaker.
