Biography

I was very active when first licenced in the 1970s, primarily on 160m. During this time I was a member of Verulam ARC and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) ARC.

Frequent changes of QTH, increasingly demanding jobs and slightly later a young family led to amateur radio being reduced to RSGB membership, reading Rad Com and not much else for just less than 40 years.

Bringing the story up to date, I have now retired and have had the time to rebuild my station and antenna systems from scratch and to finally start to enjoy the advances in communications and digital technology - if not the greater EMC problems. I am now active on all HF bands and new for me, 6m, 2m and 70cm.

I joined West Kent ARS at the end of 2017 and CDXC in March 2019. I have resumed my contest and DX interests.
