I am mostly on 6m-13cm bands running low power, but I occasionally venture on to HF. I'm experimenting with 2W on 13cm using an SG-Labs transverter. Skeds welcome.

For 3cm, I have put an 80cm off-set dish up on its own pole. I am experimenting with a home-brew crook made of circular waveguide (22mm copper pipe) to a dual mode horn. The pole sits on the attic floor & is turned by a rotator indoors. The pole sticks out above the chimney where the dish will turn clear of the chimney pots. 3W goes into the waveguide. Again, skeds welcome.

If I am in the shack, I usually log in to ON4KST chat, so give me a shout. New-comers to amateur radio are especially welcome for a chat. If you have your "ticket" then you have as much right as anyone else to be on the air. We are all learning & we can all learn from each other. We were all beginners once. I'm friendly! :)

When I got into amateur radio as a listener, A5801, and later as a licensed amateur, there were still lots of amateurs about who were ex-forces & shit-hot on the key. Recently we have had a new influx of enthusiasm into the hobby from CB operators and I welcome this. Amateur radio is a broad church & different people can enjoy it in different ways.

I will have a go at morse code when the going gets tough. I passed my test at 12 wpm some time ago and I don't think I've really improved at it since then, so be gentle with me on this mode!

I have registered with LotW and I have loaded up some contacts, mostly from 1969. I'll try to catch up.

I am a member of the Sheffield & District Wireless Society. We have a website and a facebook page.

I have a blog and older bits of blog on LJ.
