Keith really enjoys the multiple facets of the Amateur Radio hobby as he feels that there is so much one can learn and get involved in, whether you are young/old/love the outdoors or prefer to stay at home.
His station consists of a dual band mobile radio with a Diamond X200 for 2m and 70cm, and an Icom 7300 built into a Go Box for HF, that is typically coupled to an End Fed Half Wave multi band wire antenna or a home brew seven band Hex Beam mounted on a home brew, mild steel, square tube telescopic mast that can be raised or lowered with a hand operated winch.
He uses Log4OM as his logging software coupled with WSJT-X or FLDIGI for digital modes, and chases satellites with a dual band HT and Amsat Yagi.
