My name is Kevin Lloyd and live in the town of
Stockport which is approximately 7 miles south of the City of Manchester in the
North West of England, I gained my amateur radio 'Class B' licence in 1984 using
the call sign G1EVP, my first rig was a Trio 9130 which only gave me FM but later
upgraded to a Yaesu FT-290 which gave me the ability to work SSB with which I had
many contacts both in the UK and Europe, in the coming years I worked in different
modes of operation including Slow Scan and Fast Scan Television, then in 1988 I
decided it was time to learn morse code, I eventually sat the morse examination at
12 wpm in 1989 and after the third attempt I gained my 'Class A' licence with the
call sign G0JNH, I then bought a Yaesu Ft-707 from a friend and using a G5RV I was
able to work much farther afield, my present HF transceiver is an Icom IC-706MKIIG
and a Cobweb antenna which has given me even greater operating distances and the
chance to work /M.
