I have had an interest in radio for many years, but never extended that interest into serious practice, apart from a brief period with legal CB, until now. In May 2008 I passed my UK foundation licence and shortly after purchased a Yaesu FT8800 to take the plunge from theory to practice. The radio was soon complemented with a Yaesu FT 857D. My call sign was M3XPZ and allowed me to transmit at 10w.
Subsequently I passed my intermediate exam and obtained call sign 2E0EAK that allows higher power to be transmitted.
