New Member, Old hand


Hi everyone.

Personal this side is Andrew, located in the Leeds/Bradford area. Returning to radio after a 30 year break. I build a lot of my own stuff, mostly valve linears PL519's etc. I live in a pretty isolated area and used to use 45 metre band to qso into the Benelux and SA areas.

A lot has changed in radio, no more buzby, called OFCOM now, do they still persue operators on the clandestine bands and where (apart from 11m) would be a good frequency to start?.

Thanks Unit 183
Andrew

Hi Andrew and welcome.
Ofcom dont seen to bother with us unless there are complaints, 11 and 45 is where I use but now and then can be found on ham bands - but its rare!

Hello from me.
Although not currently as active as I'd like to be, 11m is where it all happens (as it always has) but there is a reliable following on 45m too.

Good to see we have another fan of high voltages about the place. Hollow state technology is at serious risk of being forgotten about altogether - we have to keep it alive!
