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

Joined the Liverpool & District Amateur Radio Society.

Passed the RAE in December 1982 and became licensed as G6UTZ operating on the 2m band with a handheld Kenwood/Trio TR-2400.

After passing the morse examination in December 1983, 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 work and moving around the country.

Finally settled in the south of England, and occasionally heard on 2m and 70cm bands with a Kenwood/Trio TR-9130 (2 Metre multimode) and a Yaesu FT-780R (70cm multimode).  These rigs were very old and only had tone burst for repeater access (no CTCSS).
