Biography



Hello and thanks for checking out my page....I'm a SWL and radio enthusiast in West Yorkshire UK. I got involved in the hobby in September 2017. Many radios and antennae later, here I am.

My main interest is HF SSB phone and HF antenna design (novice) and experimentation.

Always investigating and keen to learn and I welcome information and advice on home brew HF antenna ideas (ideally stealth),
predominantly for 160/80/40.

Looking at various commercial Mag loops and wire beam antenna and would very much welcome recommendation and advice.

Using wedsdr - Hack Green, Derby and Twente, various DX cluster, QRZ.com and QRZCQ.com.
