Welcome

Welcome to my Amateur Radio Pages. I plan to provide information with some of the things I have experimented with (or I'm currently looking at) with a hope that at least some of it is of interest. A number of the items are not strictly Amateur Radio related but they are likely to be of interest to people interested in Radio.

My particular interests are Software Defined Radios and receiving some of the more interesting things out there (ADS-B, AIS etc). I also have an interest in antennas and antenna design, especially what can be done cheaply, and put up quickly for HF (My home location makes operating difficult).

I also have an interest in High Altitude Ballooning which can include sending location information via a suitable data mode (often RTTY) using license free frequencies in the UK (Unfortunately Amateur Radio is not currently allowed airborne in the UK so it cannot be used for HAB)
