Hello! I thought I should introduce myself. I'm from Wales, in the UK. I passed my intermediate exam last year - which allows me up to 50W. I've always had a goal of doing CW on HF and to that end I started a morse course last week at my local club. It's going well - reading A-H, & T at 7wpm already! I have a 70cm monoband rig in the car, but unless I want to use relays there's nobody around on air - at least on that band. In my teens (1980s) I had a Saturday job in a CB radio shop, so I picked up some skills - making PL-259 cables by the dozen, and so on. Lately I got into motorsport and looked into amateur radio for car-car or car-track communication, which took me to my local amateur radio club (BARS, GW6GW) and there into the wide world of amateur radio. 33, Jayne.
