Biography

An avid fan of Short Wave Amateur Radio Listening have been listening for many many years and enjoy picking up all types of Ham Radio chatter on all modes.

Have been messing around with radio's since 1976 after been given an old home-brew SWR which you had to unplug coils to get on different bands by a member of the Clifton Amateur Radio Society G3GHN Which used to be located at New Cross Gate in South London

I have had several radio's over the years Realistic DX-390 for HF Frequencies I also purchased a YUPITERU MVT-7100 for HF and VHF/UHF but the one I use most to receive on HF is the Yaesu FT-2000. I use this to monitor HF Ham bands and other commercial traffic. One might ask why use a FT-2000 as a generall coverage receiver. That is explained a liitle further down.

I also use a SDRplay Radio Spectrum Processor - RSP2 1KHz → 2GHz in conjunction with the Yaesu FT-2000 as a pan-adaptor. the whole process is controlled by SDR Console V3 and omnirig so that i can view the radio spectrum for a certain band and also control the rig from the computer screen.

Antenna is Tornado 26-30Mhz mounted on pole 12ft high which gives good receive performance over the entire HF band when conditions allow. Roll on sun spot maximum..

I also use various software packages to receive CW, RTTY, PSK, SSTV and other Digi modes

As a severe sighted person I have a modified computer that super enlarges every thing on the screen which helps me to use and control the radio from the computer screen so that is a bonus to let me continue my hobby.

I am also going to attempt to take a course to help me obtain a foundation licemce. but will need help from friends to tackle the printed meadia in the books.
