Hello my name is Lawrence .  ( Lee )
I have been a swl for several years and a foundation licence holder from march 2012 .

I do intend to take my intermediate and full licence in time.

I am however finding the 10 watts exciting and very enjoyable and i am so amazed how far i can get with it i almost done cartwheels the first time i talked to america it was such a buzz.

However the next step will take sometime as unfortunately due to an attack & assault which happened to me as a bus driver back in 1995 the resulting head injury gave me epilepsy which for the first seven years the siezures could not be controlled , as a result i have a very bad memory and find retaining information hard so the intermediate maybe sometime off also please forgive me if i ask for your callsign twice as i sometimes forget the second half by the time i write down the first half .

I find the whole spectrum of this hobby facinating from talking on 2 metres or 70cms repeaters to all bands from 80 to 6 metres no antenna yet for top band.
Being new to this i have flung myself into learning as much as i can on constructing my own antennas this is giving me great satisfaction at the moment.

My shack at this time is as follows.

For hf and 6 metres i am using a elecraft kx3  as my main radio and a yeasu ft450d as a secondery unit and an ocf dipole in inverted v format at 35 feet,and if required a mfj-941e tuner ,standard microphone, also a Heil proset 6 headset for when the grand kids are around.


For hf and 6 metres mobile and qrp use( and 2nd base ) i have an ft817 +z817 tuner and chamelion v2L antenna or ranger 9 on a triple mag mount and assorted single band antenna for static use and a 7ah battery.

For homebase 2 metres +ssb i have an icom ic-211 a great old rig plus a home made dipole antenna for Dstar i use a ic-e92d and for Dmr i have a md390 also a Hytera ar-685  a fantasic piece of kit.

for 10 metres i have a crt ss6900 which is for use with a dedicated dipole on roof.

Handhelds i have a wouxun KG-679E 2metre and a BAOFENG uv-4r for 2m+70cm & a hltv88 70cm handheld

thanks for looking at my page and i hope to work you soon .


I live in a town called Dumfries which is the largest town in Dumfries & Galloway , South west Scotland .


The town is steeped in history it is connected with Rabbie Burns who lived wrote and worked here until his death he is buried in st michaels cemetery in the town.

Grayfriers church at the end of the high street in the town is where in 1306 Robert the Bruce killed John comyn his rival for the crown of Scotland he then became an outlaw.

and several miles from the town is where John Paul Jones was born at Arbigland, Kirkbean, 6 July 1747 he was the founder of the US Navy.

A beautiful view of the river Nith which flows through the town.


I would also like to thank all at Ayr Amature Radio Group which has the distinction of being the club from which the late Mike Dalrymple initiated the Lighthouse weekend event www.gm0ayr.org for all there help and support during my training and test and also for the great ongoing assistance through the group.
I travel 122 miles round trip every second wednesday from my home to the group and always look forward to it so thanks again guys .
