    Hi, Just to introduce myself- may name is Ian and the QTH is Crabbs Cross in Redditch.
    I have been a short wave listener for 40+ years and in May passed the Foundation and passed the Intermediate in July.
    I have been interested in radio and electronics from the age of 11, having been introduced to radio by my Grandfather who worked at the GEC in Coventry.
    Have constructed lots of valve projects-receivers, oscilloscopes etc from Practical Wireless articles.
    I still construct and really enjoy restoring valve radios, both domestic and communication receivers- I have a modest collection...

    I joined the forum today. A little about me... I was last interested in amateur radio during the mid sixties to early seventies. Then I used a CR100, 2 19 set's and a 52 set and various home constructed kit. I also had the use of a huge garden. I became re interested last year, took my foundation exam at the end of the year and intermediate earlier this year. Now using an Alinco DX-77 and a Yaesu FT-1802. My back garden is so small it's difficult to decide what HF antenna's will be the best long term. I'm currently setting up as required a vertical on a tripod and wire antenna's wrapped around...

    Hi folks.

    My name is Neil and the callsign is 2E0 TDX.

    I live in Cheshire and have been active on the amateur bands for about 3 years, so I'm still learning!

    I'm not very active on H.F. due to the planning Demi Gods making me take most of the antennas down....but play on V.H.F. from home and the odd dabble on lower frequencies from the mobile.

    I've recently taken up hillwalking and activating summits for Sota, so maybe I'll catch up with some of you from a hill somewhere!
    Regards, Neil.

    Greetings to all (and sundry)
    Its nice to be back with you after such a long stay away. What with living on a boat running an antique shop and then taking a round trip of the good old GB in a motor caravan.
    C.B seems to have had to take a very low place on the agenda .But the spark was still there , so during a session of "site hopping" I found QSO Forums
    So here I am
    Just as soon as I get up and running with a rig i,ll be back.
    In the mean time beseeing you all
    Best of regards berjay

    Hi Folks,

    Just a quickie introduction and a potted bio.

    My name is Elizabeth but I'm known to most people as Lissa - dates back to when a company I worked for had 3 Elizabeths so one became Liz, the second was Beth and I settled for Lissa. I also have a nickname of "Duchess" as a result of my efforts in doing Victorian re-enactment stuff and "Queen Victoria" bestowed the title of "Duchess of Woking" on me.

    I first got interested in radio when I was a teenager, although...

    I am new to this group. I just got me a Emperor TS-5010 radio. I do not know much about this radio and i sure hope i did not make a mistake in buying it. It is used that i got it off of ebay. I paid a total of 203.00 for it. I have not gotten it yet, but i sure would like to know more about it. So if anyone has this radio or has used it in the past, i would like to know what you think about it.
