Ham Member Lookups: 2213


Hello. Thanks for looking me up and listening for my signal. I qualified as a amateur radio operator in November 2008 as M6WOW and gained the intermediate licence in June 2009 with callsign 2E0DAI. I passed the UK Full licence Exam and gained the M0YDH callsign in August 2010 and have a Notice of Variation to operate on the 5MHz experimental band.

My main interest is in lightweight, portable operations and Summits on the Air in particular. In the English Lake District I also activate summits listed in Wainwright's Pictorial Guides for Wainwrights on the Air.

I am looking forward to plenty of activations in the years to come. SOTA people are a very friendly bunch of souls and the scheme provides an excellent incentive for a long walk ! Sometimes it isn't windy on the summit and the sun shines HI. I attained SOTA Shack Sloth Status in May 2010 and am working towards the hardest award in Ham Radio - SOTA Mountain Goat - 1000 activator points.

When operating as MW0YDH/P in Wales calls in Welsh are welcomed. ('Dwi'n hapus iawn i siarad ar y radio yng Nhymraeg. Drosof.) . I have had chatty QSO's in German and can use French and Danish on the radio too.

Please be gentle with me if you hear me on the key. I have just started having CW QSO`s so please QRS. Increasing the spaces between characters in your callsign may give me more decoding / thinking time. Multiple callsign repeats are very welcome at present. I'll apologise in advance if I suddenly decide to go QRT because I'm finding the pressure unbearable. I tend to send faster than I can decode too. So all in all I'm a fairly typical beginner !! Thanks to M0KZB and M0PNN for the hours of tuition.

At present I have a Yaesu FT-817ND as my main portable radio, an IC-7100 as my base station and a VX-7R handheld. There is also a Wouxun KG699E handheld for 70MHz FM. I use a SOTABeam for 144 MHz & 432 MHz SSB at home and on the hill and have a linked inverted Vee dipole antenna for 3.7 and 7.1 MHz . My present lighter, linked dipole is based on photos from GW4BVE. At home my antennae are erected in the back garden on fishing poles. There's a doublet threading round 3 sides of my property and the 28MHz vertical is mounted in the apple tree.

I'm a member of Wolverhampton ARS, the RSGB and GQRP member 12764.
