**Please confirm any QSO we have on QRZ where possible** Thanks.
I am Dennis..... known as Den to some friends, had to take a bit of time away from the hobby but back into it now. Took some time as relocated to a Ground floor flat that has a communal path between my flat and my garden but eventually managed to tunnel under the above mentioned path so some coax cables are now in place!
I entered the hobby in March 2014 after passing the foundation exam and gaining the call sign M6XDC and then I progressed to intermediate level and claimed 2E0YDC as my call sign in August 2014. I passed the full licence exam in May 2015 and surrendered the previous call signs as would not be using them again.
My interest in all things radio go back to my childhood being a Short Wave Listener as a child and then had CB radio through my teen years in the 1980s and into the early 1990s and always had a scanner or radio or 2 throughout the years.
I am an RSGB registered assessor for foundation and intermediate levels and a committee member at Mid Sussex Amateur Radio Society
I am currently using a Yaesu FT-897D transceiver with just 100 watts for HF with an LDG AT-200Pro Autotuner. I am using a Nested Marconi type antenna based on a design by G7FEK which is 7.5 meters high and an MFJ-1835 5 band cobweb antenna which is currently 6.5 meters high and a Diamond KV-5 vertical 5 band antenna ground mounted. I use a Sharmans X300 antenna for 2 meters and 70cms. I don't have a big DX station so please be patient if my signal is weak to you.
I get an S6 to S8 noise floor on 80 and 40 meters also whether I use a vertical or horizontal antenna so fighting a losing battle at this location
My garden size is 15 metres by 5 metres so limited for antenna size also so 80 meters is a challenge.
DX Code Of Conduct
(I wish a lot of other stations would adhere to this....!!!)
Hope to speak to you sometime.
