My Name is Bob
I live in the small village of Gildersome (clicking the link will tell you all about my location)
The part of Gildersome were I live lays in the shadow of Harthill at around 460 feet above sea level it is a modest location for VHF from 0 degrees through to 155 degrees which means there is not a lot much higher between here and the horizon.
My current station consists of the following
Main HF radio Yaesu FT1000 MkV field and SP-8 speaker (I have owned this radio for a few years now and is a real legend of a radio) for the audio I use a Heil gold line mic with the HC-5 insert and run that through the W2IHY EQ.
I am mainly active using Data Modes such as PSK MFSK RTTY and at the moment I am using an Icom 756 ProII which is linked to the shack computer via the Microham DIGIKEYER and running The HAM RADIO DELUXE software.
