Biography

I have been an SWL on and off for over 40 years. In 1981 I took and passed the then RAE which only gave one access to 2m and above, with the callsign, G6RFD. I spent a lot of time in the early 80's on 2m, both SSB and FM. Marriage, family and work consigned Ham radio to the 'back burner'. In 2000 I took and passed the 5wpm Morse test which gave me the callsign M5RFD. I was quite active on the HF bands for a few years until I got disillusioned with the "5,9 73's" sort of QSO. I rejoined the ISWL (International Shortwave League) 4 years ago and I use my membership number as my SWL number. I now only listen, to both Broadcast and Ham bands, and am usually active most days.

Worked DXCCs:
