“Please Note dear reader, this site is under constant development, and takes quite a bit of my time, so if you appreciate my efforts, please if you want to buy a book or donate through Paypal or bitcoin for upkeep of the site, I certainly wouldn’t mind. Failing that please subscribe to my feeds, register an account here and post comments, tell me what you’d like to see”

Please if you have RSGB business with me use the following email addresses

This is so my work and my private email are separate, and both accountable. Sending to the wrong email will get you an email back saying please repost to .. email. I am also currently Chairman at Saltcoats Community Action which is a community led project to initially restore the festive lights to Saltcoats but also to re-inspire community and traders to work together.

Would you like a Digital SKED, please feel free to give me a shout to arrange, I’d prefer non PSK maybe Olivia or Feld Hell. Why not use the pop up tab at the bottom right to contact me. If you are interested in my Shack and what is in it have a look at my shack page

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 YL and mother to my two youngest children.

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

If your 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).

I am also a self confessed Soldering Iron Junkie, I am not a person that decides just to go out and buy a new radio for no reason, I’d rather build or repair one. So if your one of those people who has a radio fault and doesn’t know what to do with it, and are fed up of massive repair bills why not ask me? I also make up cabling for many different radios, including power looms, remote head kits, TNC to radio leads. So if your looking for something please contact me. If it had not been for a bad childhood and being told I was useless, I don’t think I’d have ever got into studying at all, but thankfully now I have many qualifications, and Radio is something I thoroughly enjoy.
