Hi and thanks for taking the time to lookup my details on QRZ.com

My name is Adam, I am 50 years old and I live in Lincolnshire with my family. It's been about 17 months now since I passed my foundation exam and I have been busy looking at the different sides of the hobby. I have recently made a few changes to the shack including trading the FT-2000 in towards an Icom IC-7700 which I have had for just 2 days at the time of writing. I have also removed the G5RV and alongwith M0PYU have put together an inverted L random length wire antenna.

The new antenna has allowed me to get onto both topband and 80m which I am really happy about. The antenna comprises about 45 mtrs of wire which starts at a CG-3000 placed at the base of a 10mtr pole. The cable is vertically wound around the fibreglass pole until it reaches the top at which stage the wire goes horizontally for 10.5 mtrs across to a second pole (Height about 9 metres). The wire then makes a turn of 45 degress and goes for another 10 mtrs to be terminated on an isolator which is connected to paracord connected to a hook on the rear of the house.

It has been a big step up and although I have moved the FT-2000 onwards, I retain both the FT-1000 and the FT-991 radios to supplement the IC-7700. I am hoping to save for the forthcoming IC-9700 to expand my contesting capabilities on 2mtrs, 70cm and 23cm.

Please feel free to check back and see how things change as I start the move towards my intermediate license and aim for a 2E0 callsign. Thanks Adam.
