I am 41 years old and live in a small city called Derby, this is located about 120 miles north of London, I work at producing fine English bone china for a company called Royal Crown Derby and I have done this job for 25 years+.
I live with my long time girlfriend of 17 years and i have one daughter (Chloe) who is now 15 years old.
I first started out on the radio when i was 16 but soon moved out of my dads house and sold all my equipment and bought my first house. I have just got returned into the hobby again after a huge break and love to spend a few hours a day in peace and quiet scanning the bands whlie Karen watches the TV.
Collecting all qsl cards is a big passion of mine also as i have a large collection from 1991, so please send me your cars and I will 100% return (no contribution needed I am getting my new collection together and sticking them on my wall in my workplace to make the place look like a home from home shack!)
Going out in my truck mobile is a another thing I like to do and when it is not raining I set up the G5RV up on the fishing pole. I have a good spot that I like to visit thats local to my QTH(see pics) its about 1000ft ASL.
If you here me up there then please give me a shout. Thanks for the visit and I hope to add you to my logg book soon.
