Welcome to my website, i’m guessing you got here because you heard me somewhere on amateur radio.

I am active on D-Star / DMR and also on HF via analogue or digital voice and/or Data modes such as PSK or SSTV.

I operate an Icom 7100 from home, linked to a Western HF 10 wire dipole antenna and connected to an MFJ993b antenna tuner. This allows HF, VHF and UHF use at home, for the VHF side a co linear vertical antenna is installed.

For my D-Star activity I have my treasured Icom 2820 which I have owned since 2008 and it still gives me great service, along with the Kenwood TH74D which I recently purchased for hand portable use. DMR is served via an Anytone 868.

I can be found on the DCS network usually DCS 60D (D60D) which forms the basis of the South Wales network of local repeaters, gateways and hotspots for our region.

Local D Star repeaters GB7CD and GB7RB form the backbone of the network in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
