Hi there. My name is Paul and I decided to start this blog to document my trials and tribulations with regard to main hobby – amateur radio. I have not held an amateur radio licence for very long – since 2001. I live in a particularly beautiful part of the UK Lake District close to the western coast of northern England, which is not ideal for radio purposes as it as the bottom of a rather steep sided valley. Consequently I tend to concentrate on designing and building my own equipment or operating from temporary locations in the UK. A group of us make an annual pilgrimage to a Scottish Island and operate from there for a week, making contacts all over the world. I hope you enjoy your visit to the blog and find it useful, entertaining(?) or anything else for that matter.
