Hi and thank you for looking me up on QRZ.com. My name is Darren I am 33 years old and enjoy radio, electronics, and mechanics. I live in a village called Ruskington 5 miles from the historic market town of Sleaford in the county of Lincolnshire in England. I work as a motor vehicle technician for a local family run company 5 miles from home, I have worked for them for over 16 Years.
I have been into radio for many years following my fathers interest in radio (Now 2E0MPE) who had various cb's and/or scanners around, which kick started my interest when I was around 10 years of age. I became a short wave listener and a CB operator for 12 years. In my teens years I started to study for what was the RAE Radio Amateur Exam, but I lost interest in my studying and carried on with my SWL and CB operating.


In 2006 with the help of Mike G7TGL, Chris G0PXB I was put in contact with Peterborough amateur radio club, which was running the new foundation license course. (Thanks to Alan G8XLH and Tracey M5ATR for running the course) I have now been licensed since 23rd Nov 2006 and have successfully completed my intermediate (March 2009) and full (March 2012) license levels thanks to Ant M0HAZ.
