Licensed in 1961. QRT from 1985 until September 2008. Mainly interested in homebrew. Retired from a career in radio/television servicing followed by over 36 years at Heathrow Airport's Control Tower servicing Air Traffic Control ground based electronic equipment working on high power 10cm primary radar, 3cm & 8mm radar, general vhf/uhf communications and various electronic equipment.

Since regaining interest in amateur radio using my fully operational valve/tube (G2DAF) tx built in 1965 have subsequently built a solid state tx to give me operation on all the HF bands, two high power linear amps plus several other bits and bobs. Home brewing is the only way to keep me interested in amateur radio even though I confess to having purchased a K3 transceiver used mainly as a receiver only.

Not interested in contests and never claimed any awards. Contacts made with homebrewed gear is reward enough for me. Sadly, sometimes I feel like a red squirrel being made extince by the greys.

My home brewed 4CX1500b amp for QRP work!

The photo below is of my son Andrew sat at my totally home brewed station in 1968

The photo below is of my wife Ann sat at my totally home brewed station in 1966. 

The receiver on the right is a state of the art triple conversion tunable IF of QST magizine design.

True Amateur Radio

Topside of my homebrewed G2DAF tx built in 1965 and still going strong! All coils wound by hand, all metal drilled by hand, all alignment completed using a diode probe and a 100 micro amp moving coil meter. 



Finally, the guts of my G2DAF tx. Not a semi-conductor in sight, all valves/tubes. Good luck with your build.
