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.

Now, on the wrong side of 30, I operate mostly HF, typically CW+SSB plus PSK, RTTY and JT modes. I like to experiment with aerials and all those in use here are home-brew - Typically, I use a fan-dipole for 40m through 10m and, occasionally, a home-brew CobWeb. Operation on 160m/80m will be with an Inverted-L though this is a seasonal antenna.

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 (used sparingly) and either a 7Ah or 12Ah battery. These all fit into my home-brew Porta-Frame made from 15mm copper pipe, soldered and sprayed with "Hammerite" along with an Android application called tabLog which I use on a 9-inch tablet.
