Personal Interests

Amateur Radio

Amateur (Ham) Radio and shortwave listening is one of my main interests.

Location: IO90IR, SZ49, 50.74N 1.31W.

Electronics

I enjoy playing with relatively simple electronics.

Photography

An interest not much practiced at the moment, Now have digital but I think the "old" SLR and film still have their place!

Computers

Include this because I waste so much time trying to get things working that I must be interested! Computer is assembled AMD dual core on a Gigabyte mainboard. NOTE parallel and serial ports ARE still available for radio computers.

I have been using computers to monitor various radio signals, see my other pages.
Walking/Cycling

Used to enjoy walks of 5-10 miles in the country fairly regularly, now I've gone back to a regular cycle ride.

Music

Listen to mainly orchestral classical music.
