Joined the RSGB in July 1982 as a radio listener (RS51759).

Joined the Liverpool & District Amateur Radio Society.

Passed the RAE in approx 1983 and became licensed as G6UTZ operating on the 2m band with a handheld Kenwood/Trio TR-2400.

After taking the morse examination, I became an A Class licencee G4WED in Jan 1984. Worked mostly 10m band into USA.

Took part in many HF/VHF contests with the club licence (G3AHD).

Taught morse to club members for a couple of years.

Moved away from Liverpool at the end of 1985 and became fairly dormant on amateur radio due to moving around the country.

Finally settled in the south of England, and once or twice a year I checked on 2m and 70cm bands with a Kenwood/Trio TR-9130 (multimode) and a Yaesu FT-780R (multimode).  These rigs were very old and only had tone burst for repeater access.

Rigs are Yaesu FT897, Kenwood TS-2000 and a TS-140S,  Anytone AT-5189, Icom ID51, TYT MD-380 and FDC RD-150A plus a Spectrum Communications 4M Transverter.

Aerials are Cobwebb for 20-10m (inc WARC), a Diamond V-2000 for 6m, 2m and 70cm, Nevada 4m 5/8λ vertical and 4m 3 ele Yagi plus a couple of discones and wire antennas with G-Whip Antenna Products un/un's, baluns and choke baluns ( http://gwhip.co.uk/ ).
