A year since my last update - shameful - too much time on the internet. Too many hobbies...... I added two more to them in the past year - Fly Fishing, but I'm no JR Hartley - problem with this is I am not a lover of trout or salmon to eat, and the terrain where it takes place is more suited to birding or birdwatching. Probably my greatest passion!
Radio has taken a back seat - I listen more than anything these days, as posted elsewhere, I have added a digital interface to enhance the hobby or listening/receive side of it. RTTY, PSK31, SSTV & even CW if so inclined all on a small well-crafted bit of kit - see links for Alan's website (M0AQC)
I also tried the Norfolk Broads for the first time - so much so have booked again for June with a crew of 5! - something from the "I-always-wanted-to-do-but-never-got-around-to" list. A great way of relaxing and letting the world go by with a maximum speed on the river of 3-6 mph - depending on what stretch.
Next year I plan to do more birding, photography and travel in my new car - might even throw a bit portable/hilltopping in - a great excuse to get out of the shack and get some fresh air and leave planning problems and neighbours behind!
