Hi, thanks for looking at my pages, the handle is Martin. 

This was in Derek's G0AHJ Shack circa 1995      This is me sat out side the Cafe in vernon park stockport circa2011    My wife Jayne M3MHJ

I got may ham ticket in 1984 and have been active in and around the Stockport and Macclesfield areas, with a trip to Holland and Germay in the late 1980's where I operated under
CEPT TR61/01 as G1GYC/PE/P - seemed a little strange but that was what the paper worked from the dutch PTT said, then as DC/G1GYC/M and DC/G1GYC/P while in West Germany.
I have been a member of a number of local radio clubs over the years - RATEC (Radio Amateurs Technical Engineering Club), Macclesfield DRS (GX4MWS - Macclesfield Wireless
Society) where for a short time I was chairman and East Cheshire Radio Group (MX0ECR) since 2000.
I have also been involved with the organisation of the NARSA (Northern Amateur Radio Societies Association) Ham Rally for over 20 years up to 2012.

I am currently living in Hazel Grove and after a number of years only being active either mobile or portable I got set up at home with a radio station again in 2012 / 2013, I installed
a mast and SteppIR DB11 and I am working much DX on 20 through 10m. I am looking to get on the lower bands as 40m is a favourite band and I would like to really try some activity
on 80m and LF bands.
I am a keen VHF DXer from portable locations, but also want to get back on 6m, 4m, 2m, and 70cm from home as well.

Update April 2017
Jayne was diagnosed with late stage 3 / early stage4 Cancer in 2011 so with work and family commitments taking up much time in the past 2 or 3 years expanding the radio station was not important.
Sadly she passed away on the morning of the 6th April after a short illness while in the local hospital having picked up an influenza infection from another patient.
Radio will be back on my adgenda to revamp the station, get going on the VHF bands with me using my hobby to promote support of "The Christie" and "St.Anne's Hospice" charities
in Jayne's memory. If you would like to give a donation please follow one of these links.
St.Ann's Hospice https://community.sah.org.uk/SSLPage.aspx?pid=260
or
The Christie via this "JustGiving" link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Jayne-Hallsworth

SteppIR DB11

 The station is KenwoodTS440Sat driving a Yeasu FL2100z Amplifier, this feeds the SteppIR, that is used for 20M - 10M operations (some times on 6M)
I also have a Yeasu FT897d this is the rig I am using for field operations and will be the VHF / UHF radio in the shack.
