Licenced in 2015 I consider myself new to Amateur Radio. It is a hobby where I can learn something new all the time which is what I enjoy about it.
I live in the middle of Exmoor National park and am still exploring the best sites for radio nearby. Since moving here I’ve become a bit more interested in VHF due to there being quite a few hills nearby, but my main interest is data modes, specifically JS8Call.
Since the release of the Icom IC-705 I have almost exclusively been using it and have built a portable digital radio station around it that I can take anywhere with me and set up on most bands within a few minutes.
