I’ve just passed my intermediate amateur radio exams with the help of Stockport Radio Society G8SRS. I’ll be keeping my previous call-sign M6TKG for now, but I’ll also now be using 2E0TKG under certain circumstances. As a gift to myself for passing, I’ve started putting together a little portable rig for low-power (QRP) work based on a Yaesu FT-817ND. I’ve already started reading for my full licence test, and have just begun working towards my 12 words-per-minute Morse code test. I hope that soon I’ll be in a position to bring a rig away when I travel, and make some contacts from some of the unusual places I sometimes have the opportunity to visit.
