I’m a middle aged SWL from the UK midlands. Love receiving some of the more technical forms of radio like WESAT, NAVTEX, SSTV and RTTY and enjoy building my own home brew SW radios especially Regen Sets. More recently I’ve gotten into CB radio and I’ve currently got an Midland Alan 42 DS, in the car a Midland M5 and for DX various HF comms receivers (and a new fangled SDR reciever) at home fed from a long wire antenna.
I’m planning to sit my foundation exam, for many a year now I’ve fancied studying for the radio ham license as I was always fascinated by listening to the amateur bands on HF and on 2 metres over the years.

Welcome to Charlie Tango.
Great introduction there with a wide range of radio interests keeping you occupied. Got to admit that I love regenerative receivers myself for their superb capabilities from such a simple circuit and built many myself.
You do sound like an ideal candidate for gaining your Amateur Radio licence and I wish you luck with it all.
