I'm based in the city of Chelmsford - around 45km from London and my interest in amateur radio started at an early age.  During my early teens, there was lots of listening 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.  I ignored HF (and CW) for several years and it wasn't until 2009 that I started taking an interest in HF and "wet string".

The main Shack radio is a Kenwood TS-590SG - Operating is mostly CW and Data modes (JT, PSK, RTTY) from home and the occasional bit of SSB.  At present, I'm using an 80m Doublet in a linear-loaded arrangement.  I also use a ground-mounted 1/4-wave vertical for 40m/30m sometimes.

If you're hearing me "portable" - I may be using either a Yaesu FT-857D or an Elecraft KX3. Aerials are typically a 40m Inverted-V Doublet or 40m/30m/20m/17m Linked-Dipole and either a 7Ah or 12Ah battery.  For small outings, I may be QRP with the KX3 and operating CW - but if I'm loud and on SSB, it's probably the 857.
