Mick G8EHX Website

Activities and hobbies

I have numerous hobbies, some are active and some just in the background.

Model Engineering - a phase I went through in the late 1980’s - early 2000’s, still very interested in it but lacking the time for construction.

Writing web sites - a hobby, most sites that I wrote for were clubs and associations I was involved with, now days apart from some of my own sites (like this one) the only society website I run is for
the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway Society DHRS, which I have been a member for about 25 years and have visited the railway many times between 1977 and 2018.

Amateur Radio - a hobby that I started in the late 1960’s, getting my first radio licence in 1971 G8EHX, for operation on VHF & UHF amateur bands frequencies.
By the middle 1990’s I had learnt Morse and got my ticket for a Full Amateur radio licence G0UYQ.
At my present home address I have plenty of garden and space to erect a number of antenna for many of our allocated frequency bands, so for once I am making plenty of time to operate my radio equipmemt.

Having a large garden is very nice but the upkeep is time consuming.
