This was recorded at the QRP ARCI 'Four Days In May' convention at Dayton,

My KX3 arrives the build and first QSO.  


This web site reflects my interests in Amateur radio and its many facets. These change as knowledge is gained so this site should reflect such changes.

I make no apologies for links to other sites whose authors I respect as being the best in delivering relevant information.

I am a member of the RSGB: as our UK national body it deserves the support of all those interested in the hobby.

I am also an active member of the Warrington Amateur Radio Club: The web site

I am a member of the ARRL, the US national body looking after interests of Amateurs in the States. Information provided in QST the Journal of the ARRL is of the highest standard.

CDXC: The Chiltern DX Club is the UK's premier DX Foundation, with approximately 750 members, dedicated to encouraging excellence in DX'ing and contest operating.

CDXC began in the 1980s, Since then CDXC has grown substantially with members sharing a common interest in HF DX and contesting, drawn together by their shared values of high standards of operating and DX'ing skills. CDXC has become one of the largest and most respected DX groups in the world.  I like to think helping to fund dx peditions is most important to the survival of our hobby!


The International Morse Preservation Society. Memebership Number 14802

I am a member of AMSAT UK reflecting my interest in things that fly. This includes communications satellites, the International Space Station and also weather satellites.

Further to the CW talk I recommend Morse Runner a contest simulation program a sort of computer game for CW ops very good for getting you speed up.
