The FDM-DUO SDR QRP rig from Elad of ItalyI was a keen SWL between the ages of 12 and 15. After a break of 40 years, I returned to amateur radio in 2007. I took the foundation and intermediate courses at Denby Dale Radio Club, which meets at the Pie Hall, and received my advanced licence in 2008. CW is my first love and principal mode.

The shack workhorse is an Elecraft K3 though the latest arrival is also getting plenty of use. It's an Elad FDM-DUO, a standalone SDR transceiver of remarkable capability. Other rigs include a Ten-Tec Corsair II, with its fine receiver, a Tec-Tec Century 22, which still packs a punch, and a Ten-Tec Delta 580, which offers smooth, near-silent QSK.

I've built a number of QRP radios, including the Rockmite with its tiny roar of 500mW, and I enjoy working portable on the moors which rise up around this Yorkshire town. Sailing is another interest and you may hear me from time to time operating /mm.

My single paddle was handcrafted by Larry, N0SA. It has magnetic contacts and the engineering is superb. For portable use, the German-made Palm Radio Mini-Paddle is ideal. My career has been in newspaper journalism but my early training was in classical music. Clubs: FOC 1961, QRP 12710.
