Ham Member Lookups: 20678


First licensed in February 1970 after serving the usual SWL/pirate apprenticeship.  Being a pirate didn't go down too well with my employer the GPO, (then the radio regulator) so a license seemed a good move and distinctly preferable to the sack!  Now retired and living roughly midway between Derby and Heanor in a small hamlet just off the A608.  Main radio interest these days is 160m (Usually 1942KHz or DX) and lucky to have a fairly quite location (despite BT's attempts to ruin Ham Radio) and access to a couple of fields for the MF/HF aerials remote from the houses and fed with buried heliax.  Interest in VHF/UHF is resurfacing and I am currently building a 23cm moonbounce station and have now heard my first signals off the moon so on with the (water cooled and dish mounted) transmit side.  A long way to go yet to hear my own echoes however.................................about half a million miles come to think of it.

Shack summer 2015, quite a lot of stuff.

2m SSB Portable in the old county of Merionethshire Feb 1972 in the £25.00 Moggy van.

Same place 43 years later, still QRV!  Much more expensive van, much cheaper camera but is Ham Radio 'better'?  I'll let you answer that.

Shack Summer 2016, even more stuff.

The 3 metre 1296MHz dish under test (built from a kit by RF Hamdesign, NL). Water cooled SSPA (now working, lots of RF!) will go on the back of the dish when the wx improves!
