Although an "Old Hand" on the key (I started to learn Morse Code back in the 60s) I have only just started my journey into the wonderful world of Amateur Radio. Since beginning around September 2016, I've managed to put over 200 countries in my logbook, 99.9% of which are CW, and all that with a very modest station and extremely poor HF propagation condx.

My life story in 2 minutes!
