An avid fan of Short Wave Amateur Radio Listening have been listening for many many years and enjoy picking up all types of Ham Radio chatter on all modes. I am registered on qrzcq I also have a registered S.W.A.R.L. Callsign: MA3077SWL

Have been messing around with radio's since 1976 after been given an old home-brew SWR which you had to unplug coils to get on different bands by a member of the Clifton Amateur Radio Society G3GHN Which used to be located at New Cross Gate in South London

My early days of CB started in 1980 my radio back then was a Cobra GTL All Mode and Wide Band 120 channels if I can remember. A power Mike and a Silver Rod 1/2 wave antenna.

My setup today is far more complicated than the 1980s....

I use a SDRplay Radio Spectrum Processor - RSP2 1KHz → 2GHz in conjunction with the Kenwood TS-870 as a pan-adaptor. the whole process is controlled by SDR Console V3 and omnirig so that i can view the radio spectrum for a certain band and also control the Radio from the computer screen.

I also use the frequencies below to contact other radio users using digital modes. So if you here strange noises on those frequencies and you don't use that mode you can still decode them using software on your computer.

27.550 CW, RTTY & PSK
27.635 ROS
27.700 SSTV

Radio's 

Kenwood TS-870S
Ranger 2970DX
RSP2 SDRplay Radio Spectrum Processor
Ailunce HD1 DMR - For VHF/UHF reception on the 2mt, 70cm and VHF Marine bands

Hardware

SDRplay RSP1
Signalink USB Digital Modes Interface
Kenwood MC-85 Desktop Microphone

Antenna

Silver Rod Hi Gain 5/8 wave Vertical.

Software for Digital modes:

TRUETTY
SEATTY
MMSSTV
MULTIPSK
EASY PAL - Digital SSTV
FLIDGI
ROS

And for logging BBLogger and QRZCQ Log Book, plus i also like to receive QSL Card in the old style through the post. It also means I can save the the postage stamps from various countries from across the world
