I'm based in the city of Chelmsford (45km from London) and my interest in amateur radio started at an early age. During my early teens, there was lots of SWL'ing on HF+2m along with learning CW. Originally intending to take the RAE in 1994, it wasn't until 2001 that I got my "ticket" after passing what was then known as the C&G RAE and the Morse test to get the old Class A (now known as the Advanced/Full) licence.
The main Shack radio is a Kenwood TS-590SG - Operating is mostly HF, typically CW+JT/PSK/RTTY from home with a bit of SSB. I like to experiment with aerials and all those in use here are home-brew - Typically, I use an 80m "linear-loaded" doublet for 80m-30m and a fan-dipole for 20m through 10m.
If you're hearing me and I'm out /P - the equipment I'll be using is shown on below: FT-857D, LDG YT-100 auto-ATU with a 40m Inverted-V Doublet and either a 7Ah or 12Ah battery. I also use home-brew Android application called tabLog which I use on a 9-inch tablet.
Thanks for your interest...
