The other Radio activity is 160m Radio direction Finding in the UK countryside. Add to this owning a Caterham 7 which I built from a kit in 2004 and having driven many race tracks in the UK, France and Belgium, and a holiday in 2009 to drive many of the passes in SE Switzerland. I have worked overseas for many years but maintained a base in the UK where I own a smallholding farm, just the thing to grow towers and my wifes horses. Now retired and active from my UK shack again.
