I discovered amateur radio using the family shortwave radio when I was about 9 years old. By the age of 12, I had built my first crystal set followed by a number of one, two, and three valve radios, from a book Fun with Radio by Gilbert Davey. I then moved on to a more ambitious eight valve superhet of my own design covering 2.0 - 4.0 MHz.

I was introduced to the local radio club at 14 and passed the Radio Amateurs Exam in May 1961 at the age of 15.

I hold the FCC callsign KD3CL and the French Callsign F4VRA. In the 70s I held F0GHI

I am a CAA RTF Examiner for the UK Flight Radiotelephony Operator's Licence at EGBP
