Hi and thanks for taking the time to look me up, I have been licenced since March 2001 as M3VHT then sat the RAE (Radio Amateur Exam) in December 2001 and the call M1VHT was born.

Equipment in the shack at present is a bit of a mixed bag of old & more modern radio's with a Trio TS-830s full line up consisting of the TS-830s, SP-230 speaker, AT-230 ATU,  SM220 Station monitor, VFO-230 (digital VFO) & TL-922 linear amplifier. I just love the crisp received audio from this old radio, i try and use it every day if i can. It's so easy to repair if things go wrong with it, no modern SMC to replace, just love it.

The main radio in the shack used for everything is my recently aquired Flex 6300 WOW what a belta of a radio.  I have had many rigs through my hands and this has to be one of the best ones i have used so far ( I may just hang on to this one for a while LOL ).My main modes of operation are SSB and RTTY using the excellent MMTTY programme, My Kenwood TL922 Linear amp will loaf all day long at 200w RTTY and preserve the radio's PA I enjoy chasing DX and working as many countries as possible  (177confirmed to date at the last count, due to work commitments i don't get to play much radio these days so it may just take me a while to get any where near DXCC)                                                                                                                                      

I also like to play with BPSK digital modes for this i use the Fldigi programme, no interface required thanks to the Flex 6300 just a couple of simple virtual com ports to install and off you go, it's amazing just how far 10-20W can get you

The aerial is a Mosley TH junior covering 10,15 & 20m, for it's size it works very well, this is mounted on the top of a Clarke pump up mast which gets me round the planning regulations at my restricted QTH.

I am a keen SOTA activator using VHF from my local summits 8 in total so spoilt for choice, i use a Kenwood TR-9130 for this and a SOTA beam ( 3 element beam ) all powered by a slab battery.
