This site will cover the day to day ongoing running of my Amateur Radio Station Mike Mike Zero Zulu India Foxtrot, electronics projects and other ongoing things that are relevant to the hobby including book reviews, equipment reviews and personal opinions. For users reference: Each section in the navigation bar (Above) has it’s own title page, and sub-pages, the more you browse the more you will find. Marcus also extremely interested in the Environmental movement and is always working on new green issue projects, these will also be posted to the relevant sections of the site most of these will be of interest to amateurs and experimenters alike. Whilst also appealing to anyone interested in making their Station more resilient.

Many people seem to think that 2 meters is the best band for Rag-Chewing, and 6 meters for near distant work when the band is open. Personally I am an advocate of the 4m 70mhz Band (or as its known outside the UK “The Oddly British Band”) I find the clarity better than both 6 meters and 2 meters. Due to the fact that less people use 70mhz there is always space on the band. If you hear MM6YWF on air, then AnnA is using the shack here, AnnA being my XYL and mother to my two youngest children.

Quote for Life “If your getting Stressed, Find an Island, and Go DXing”

If you are in the area drop me a call I am also a self-confessed IOTA junkie, If I could be away regularly I would. Already I’ve done DXpeditions to Arran, Tiree and the Isle of Muck and am planning another shortly. I am interested in QRP, building rigs, FSTV and DTV and Microwave. I also enjoy building antenna’s (ok I will admit to not being brilliant at it but practice makes perfect).

Finally Marcus – MM0ZIF is an active promoter of Amateur Radio in the community and is active on the club talks circuit keep an eye in RadCom for talk dates, and why not say Hi.
