I'm based in the city of Chelmsford - around 45km from London and my interest in amateur radio started at an early age.  Originally intending to take the RAE in 1994, it wasn't until 2001 that I got my "ticket" after passing what was then known as the C&G RAE and the Morse test to get the old Class A (now known as the Advanced/Full) licence.

The main Shack radio is a Kenwood TS-590SG - Operating is mostly CW and Data modes (JT, PSK, RTTY) from home and the occasional bit of SSB.  After a few years using a resonant fan dipole, I'm currently running an 80m Doublet but in a linear-loaded (aka "Cobra") arrangement.  As an all-rounder, it works quite well.  If you're hearing me out "portable" - I may be using either a Yaesu FT-857D or an Elecraft KX3.  The aerial will be 40m/30m/20m/17m Linked-Dipole in an Inverted-V supported by a 10m telescopic pole and the station powered by either a 7Ah or 12Ah battery.

When operating CW, I'll usually call at 16-18wpm, which is my comfort-zone for a typical QSO and makes it more of an enjoyable conversation as opposed to a translation exercise - I am happy to QRS when asked, so don't be shy!
