Introduction I started out my radio adventure on the illegal CB Radio A.M. back in 1979, then onto legal FM in 1981, had a fun time and met some great people. In 1985 I took my RAE and became a licenced Radio Ham with the call sign G1UWO. Back then we were only allowed on 2mtrs 70cms, but I had a great time learning the ropes and meeting more Radio Friends. I also had fun with Amateur Television, all with home brew equipment on 70cms and 23cms via GB3UD ATV Repeater up at MowCop IO83VC In 1990 I took and passed my Morse Test and became a Full licence holder with no restrictions. so HF beconned! Sadly I had major problems with TVI on HF so I stuck to 2mtrs SSB & CW working some fantastic DX using a 12ele ZL special antenna on the chimney stack 100Watts amp and a Masthead Pre-amp. Swing around to today 2017 and I enjoy QRP on HF and 6mtrs The Magic Band using CW QRP and still delve into ATV but DIGITAL now. So 73 hope to catch you on the bands somewhere. Cheers Mark
