I enjoy internet linked systems and operate an attended DV Gateway (MB6IAG) with a Yaesu FTM-100DE System Fusion Radio and Wires X.
I also have an AllStar node, which is usually connected to HUBNet UK. For mobile or alternative locations away from home I tend to use Echolink, connected to my own node at home, which in turn is connected to HUBNet UK.
I have an interest in DMR and use a DV4 Mini dongle and GB7RR for access to the Brandmeister UK DMR network (reflector 4400), in cojunction with a Hytera PD365 for the DV4 and a Connect Systems CS700 for other access.
The DV4 Mini is also used for C4FM and the radio used is a Yaesu FT-1XDE and I'm usually connected to FCS001 module 55. I also run a Gateway (MB6IAG) on Yaesu Wires-X (Room 41087/Personal 31087), using a Yaesu FTM-100 as the node radio.
I have a second DV4 Mini, and a DVMega, used for Dstar, with an Icom ID-51E handheld and I can be found on REF001-C
For mobile use I use a Kenwood TM-G707 dual band radio, coupled to a Super Gainer SG7900 antenna, using GB3GR/GB3FR/GB3FJ/GB3LM and GB3LS FM Analogue repeaters locally as well as 2m and 70cm Simplex FM.
My location can be tracked on www.aprs.fi using my ID, 2E0ENN-5
I operate HF bands portable, using a Yaesu FT-817 with a multi-band, base loaded mobile antenna or a 10 metre long pole with an end fed wire (with 9:1 Un-Un) vertically or as a sloper with an LDG Z817 auto tuner.
I participate with the Lincolnshire Raynet group and am a member of the South Kesteven Amateur Radio Society (SKARS) - check the club website on www.skars.co.uk.
I live within the boundary of RAF Cranwell (my house was originally part of the Married Quarters), between the North Airfield (a grass strip, used for gliding) and the main South Airfield (Tutors, Super King Airs and Sentinel aircraft). My location means I am restricted in the height of my antennas - a bit of a hindrance for V/UHF, but I have a reasonable coverage, mainly to the east from here - west being a bit trickier due to geographical obstructions. Due to my location I no longer have an HF antenna installed, hence the interest in internet linked modes.
Outside of radio, my interests are Classic Cars and aviation. I have been passionate about classic cars, mainly British from the 1940's onwards, since childhood and I enjoy attending car club events. As I live more or less on an active airfield, and being only a short distance from RAF Waddington and RAF Coningsby, I get plenty of opportunity to indulge my aircraft interest.
I have a blog on www.digbydog1.blogspot.com
Thanks for looking at my page, hope to hear from as many as possible either on the air or via AllStar/Dstar/Fusion/Wires X
