Ham Radio Operator John Allsopp G4YDM.  Hello and thank you for your very complimentary comments and suggestions for my blog website, they are really useful and help me writing and uploading photographs of interest to many readers.

I am a radio engineer by profession, I started off my engineering career repairing modifying private mobile radio transceivers for the utility companies here in the U.K. Electricity water and gas transceivers were my main occupation many years ago, servicing them for what was a national network then.
I also did some alignment work for emergency service equipment, aerial erection, and fault-finding activities, it all helped, to understand the physics behind transmitters and receivers and of course aerials which play a big part in radio transmissions.

As you can see I am also a Radio Ham, with an interest in building and modifying ex-private mobile radio equipment for use on the international short wave bands and the VHF UHF spectrum.

Below are pictures of radio equipment that I have owned over the last fifty years.

Art and radio have been a constant interest over many years, you can see some of my realistic portraits created in oil on canvas on my home page.
