I want to share some of the frequencies to monitor regarding the war in Ukraine. Please be mindful that we should keep emergency frequencies clear and be 'ears only'.

I take a trip out to the remote barn in the Peak District to monitor some military radio signals. I wanted to find out if there's any increased radio activity on the Russian military ground force frequencies.

I get to hear some counter activity being transmitted on the frequency known as the Buzzer. I'm not sure whether the music/noises being played is radio trolling by amateurs or something more strategic.

If you want to ...

Great trip out working 40m portable during a very cold and winter evening. Equipment was FT897D and wire dipole and the overnight spent in a camping barn. Many lessons learned and chance to see 2 years of progress lead to a successful field operation.

This channel focuses on amateur (Ham) radio, science and electronics. I operate a lot of portable radio plus have an interest in amateur satellite operations. You will find reviews, ad...

Visit to new woodland location to operate the Clansman 320 on HF band. I find it is important to continuously test out the skills required to operate radio from locations such as woodlands.

The Clansman PRC 320 is a decommissioned British military radio that saw action in the Falklands and Northern Ireland.

In this video I show how easy it can be to set up a portable amateur radio station on holiday. Kit used in this video include:

Sotabeams linked dipole, short fishing pole for mast and the Xiegu X108G radio 20 watts. 30 contacts over a few days even with poor conditions.

Simple can be fun.

I finally get chance to get to the beach in South West Wales, beautiful part of the Country.

I work the 20m band using a Xiegu X108G radio, MFJ portable tuner and a brick of a battery. The antenna was a homebrew 1/4 wave vertical wire with around 15 to 20m of radials. The antenna was simply a wire cut for slightly longer than a quarter wave, helical wound around a 4.1m flag pole with the remaining sloping down.

I used a spike to sit...

Part 1 of a 2 from an overnight trip to the Peak District. My experience working 2m VHF SSB portable during the RSGB contest. It is fair to say there are many lessons to be learnt in this hobby. I hoped to make more contacts during the RSGB Christmas contest however had not planned my portable station well.

A very interesting night operating from the bunk barn in the Peak District. I was joined by Paul (G1WHP), Tom (M0RMY) and Jacob who will soon by an M7.

The day was spent building new antennas, breaking antennas, diagnosing antennas and fixing antennas. Also we got to try out some new radios, make a few contacts, ate good food and had a jolly good trip out.

I used an Android tablet with DroidSSTV app plus the wolphilink adapter.
