Biography

Foundation exam November 2015
Intermediate exam October 2016

SWL for a while, with a lot of weather fax and RTTY, plus a little airband scanning.
Had a CB as a kid. Used to spend my time with retro computers but have discovered this hobby to be quite the addiction.
Mostly use the digital modes. Don't get to use Hell as much as i would like.
When /P always /QRP, so a big thanks to the stations picking up my signal out of the mire.

December 2015 - The kid likes it when i get a new DX as she gets to put the pin in the map.
October 2016 - The kid has no interest in anything I do when it comes to radio anymore.

June 2017 - Finally managed to break into 4m, two QSO, Germany and Poland.
May 2017 - Have managed one Sporadic E opening on 6 meters - Much fun! - Still listening.
That space stuff looks good, as does GHZ and Microwave. One day I will get an proper antenna for 80m.

I would also like a Yagi and Mag Loop -One day i will build them.
April 2017- My tape measure Yagi gets me into repeaters 40miles away when /P on 4w. My coax Mag-Loop got me into Israel from inside my shack on 25w.

Worked DXCCs:
