Hi my name is Ben, I'm 32 years old, I live in Great Britain, in a small village in the East of England, with my Wife Karen (M6TPK)and our 15yr old Daughter kathryn who is not yet licence.
I have always been interested in radios and becoming a user and a friend who lives close by helped me find my way into Amateur Radio.
I passed my (M6) Foundation Exam in Dec 2010 and since then I have really enjoyed the satifaction that comes from contacting new people and now found friends across the country.
The equipment I'm running at home for 2meters and 70cm is for the Yaesu FT857 with a ZL Special beam antenna for 2meters SSB and HF im useing an offset windom and a home made delta loop for 6 meter SSB. I am also running the yaesu FT 8900R which is my mobile unit and I have recently purchased a 4metre 1000FM Philips rig with a homemade 4metre Dipole antenna. I also got a BAOFENG 2/70CM HANDY.I have also just purchased FT-817ND, for my portable Rig.
I'm a member of my local Amateur Radio Club, where I get lots of support and advice from other members.
Becoming an Amateur Radio user has ment a great deal to me and I hope to pass my 2EO in the future.
Anyway that's me so 73's for now and cya on the bands!!!.
