I am a licensed Radio Amateur and have held the UK callsign G8LRS since June 1976. I was the keeper of my local UHF repeater, GB3OV for 20 years, before I moved down to the south coast.

I can usually be found operating PSK on 20m, 30m or 40m.

I have owned a number of different bits of Amateur radio equipment over the years. My Equipment History page shows pictures of most of them.

When on holiday I have been known to operate Maritime Mobile from various cruise ships round the world.
