Biography

Due to the increasing incidences of scammers using callsigns to give gravity to their scams - if you are offered anything by anyone using 2E0KSH or M6KSH, please contact me via e-mail or pm for verification.

CURRENT ACTIVITY

Until recently, I was living the low life on QRP with an 817 working on a full G5RV antenna but now also have the pleasure of an Icom 756 Pro III. A great radio to listen to.

I am currently following a Bath Distance Learning Course and anticipate getting my full licence by Feb-April 2019.

I haven't switched on much lately due to work, but sometimes listen or rag chew on eith GB3AB, GB3US or DSTAR via GB7SF on my E92D, using local repeaters or on DMR using a Motorola SL1600 (very nice and sleek). I regularly listen on 4m calling channel with an Anytone 5189.. Nice radio for 4m FM... I also have a ThumbDV device. I am currently developing an interest in the Worked All Britain Awards as well as studying for my Full Advance Licence.

My mobile phone always gives a good 59 report..!! hi hi...

HOW I GOT STARTED

I am partially deaf, I wear hearing aids and I love the enjoyment of communicating with Amateur Radio..!! I can hear and speak very well. I became a member of the Sheffield Amateur Radio Club in February 2010 and got my Foundation Licence Call Sign (M6KSH) on the 27th May 2010. I obtained my Intermediate License 2E0 in December 2012. This was a very satisfying experience after several months of low mood and a need for a goal to achieve something positive.

I am now enjoying membership of Sheffield & District Wireless Society http://facebook.com/sheffieldwirelessgroup where I was the Founding Chair from 2013 to 2018. I have now retired from this role.

As much as I enjoy radio sport contesting and the need for the 5 and 9 reports..... I mainly enjoy Amateur Radio because I like a good "rag chew", I love a chat and enjoy getting to know people from across the world, so if you want a chat, do give me a call.

MEMBERSHIPS

I am a member of the following clubs and organisations:

British Young Ladies Amateur Radio Association I have just started being the Representative for the Yorkshire Region. (BYLARA) was founded in April 1979 to further YL operating in Britain and so promote friendship, stimulate interest and, in particular, encourage good operating techniques and courtesy to all operators at all times. BYLARA is affiliated to the RSGB and membership is open to all.
G QRP Club: The G-QRP club was formed by Rev. George Dobbs G3RJV in 1974 to cater for those interested in low power communications after a group used to meet around 3.560MHz. In the year 2000, the club celebrated its 25th birthday. In 1974 the power levels to qualify for QRP was three Watts input. In the mid 1980's, by general agreement throughout the world, the power level of five Watts output (for CW) became the acceptable limit.
Sheffield & District Wireless Society: The local society I'm involved with who promote the enjoyment of Amateur Radio in Sheffield.
Worked All Britain Awards: My book number is 20187

QSL CARDS

I enjoy collecting QSL cards and always send them out to my QSO contacts who say on their QRZ profile that they like to receive QSL cards. You do not have to send me a QSL card, but I do collect them as part of my hobby and it will be very nice to receive a card from you. I think it is great to see them when they arrive in the post and I will always return a QSL card to you - You DO NOT have to send me money or an IRC to return a card. However, enclosing $2 will ensure a QSO reply and post is generally secure in the UK, but is it secure in your country? The UK no longer sell International Reply Coupons, and I do not send cash over the post for security reasons. I usually send QSL cards just after my payday when I have money to post cards.

SSTV - SLOW SCAN TV

I particularly enjoy using SSTV and packet radio and you might receive one of the following SSTV images below....


WHERE I LIVE AND MY FUTURE GOALS

I am lucky to live in Sheffield, which within 15 minutes has access to the Peak District National Park http://www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/ I do enjoy walking and camping out there, as well as some climbing and photography whilst I can.

I intend to set myself up with a portable radio system so I can have more fun with radio when camping at the weekend. My most favourite place and scene is at Stanage Edge, which has a great view and is home to Europe's best rockclimbing areas.

I use radio because I enjoy conversation and meeting new people, and also looking forward to experimenting with some contesting. It's an interesting new hobby that is making me think technically. I look forward to having fun and working to your stations, whatever the frequency and format it may be :-)
