Hi, Amateur Radio is a fantastic hobby for me. Got involved with electronics after getting a philips electronics kit when i was 10 years old back in 1967 built my self a radio and other bits and pieces then moved on to short wave radio listening using my fathers valve pye cambridge receiver. Got further involved with radio in my teens with friends building valve equipment etc it was great fun. Joined a Amateur radio club in New Cross SE London to study for the RAE When I was 14 But me and maths just go blank! So just went back to shortwave Radio and developed a interest in television Got myself a dual standard tv and converted it for VHF 625 Lines bands1 and 3. and started tv dxing. All great fun. worked in electronics for awhile. Got back into radio took the foundation licence And really enjoy the hobby. I live 17 stories (at a height of 200ft) on the top of a tower block in South East London on my balcony I have a watson dual band collinear for 2mtr and 70cm plus 6mtr dipole that can be adjusted for 4mtr and a home made 10mtr Center fed dipole. For the lower HF Bands 40mtr 80mtr and 160mtr (top band) I use a Sloper copper wire dipole that's a 134ft each Side. One side runs down the side of the block and the other down to a tree a bit like a inverted V that works very well on those bands and can not be seen from the road. The main radio's i use are the yaesu FT 857D for 6mtr 2mtr and 70cm bands with a philips 1200 ex pmr radio for 4mtrs. For HF i use a icom 765 Built like a battle ship with front end to match. Also use the icom 728. A yaesu FT 7900 and FT60 Hand held and last but not least the yaesu FRG7 for Medium wave. Thank you for looking 73s And good DX.
