Biography

Hi.

**Please confirm any QSO we have on QRZ where possible** Thanks.

**Now participating in LOTW**

I had to take a bit of time away from the hobby but back into it now. Took some time as relocated to a Ground floor flat (apartment) that has a communal path between my flat and my garden but eventually managed to tunnel under the above mentioned path so some coax cables are now in place! See photos further down.

I entered the hobby in March 2014 after passing the foundation exam and gaining the call sign M6XDC and then I progressed to intermediate level and claimed 2E0YDC as my call sign in August 2014. I passed the full licence exam in May 2015 and surrendered those previous call signs as would not be using them again.

My interest in all things radio go back to my childhood being a Short Wave Listener as a child and then had CB radio through my teen years in the 1980s and into the early 1990s and always had a scanner or radio or 2 of some sort throughout the years.

I am the current Vice Chairman at the Mid Sussex Amateur Radio Society

I am an RSGB registered assessor for foundation and intermediate levels.

Equipment: Icom IC-7100 x 2 and a few handheld transceivers. LDG Z100Plus autotuner. Looking into Digital modes now so have a Retevis RT82 and a TYT MD-380, a DV-Mega (Arduino based) running BlueDV so getting used to DMR and DStar...may take a while! LoL

I am using a G4YKB 66 Feet end fed wire (6 feet is pointing down vertical) which is 7.5 metres high supported by a fibreglass pole which covers most bands with ease.I am also using a Butternut HF2V (stronger copy of and modified) which is ground mounted and used for 80, 40 and 15 meters. I have an MFJ-1835 5 band cobweb antenna which is currently 7 metres high. I also have a Silver Rod vertical for 10 meters (and tunes for 12 and 15 meters) which is 6 metres high. I use a Watson W2000 for 6 meters, 2 meters and 70cms 6.5 metres high and a Sharmans X300 for 2 meters and 70cms at 7 metres high. I don't have a big DX station and I do lose some power through my 50 meter coax runs so please be patient if my signal is weak to you.

My Gridsquare is: IO90UV. My WAB Square is: TQ11

I get an S7 to S9 noise floor on most of the HF bands now whether I use a vertical or horizontal antenna so really fighting a losing battle at this location due to being close to other 2 and 3 story flats (apartments) sad Oh to live in the country away from all this!!

My garden size is 15 metres by 5 metres so limited for antenna size also so 80 meters is a challenge so any suggestions on anything I can make for 40 and 80 meters that will fit are welcome.
