    Hello all,

    I am a new member and thought I would post a question as to any UPSers who are Ham Radio Ops out there... I would be intereted in making a sked with any of you (when conditions are right) and maybe forming the UPSers Operators club (unless there is one already).

    Also if any of you enjoy fishing get in touch and we can swap stories of the one that got away...

    Cheers and Beers for now,

    Chris Colclough

    Even if you find no hams, you can still post!

    What do you do for this most excellent company?

    Welcome to this board, its good to hear from people in other parts of the world. Interesting website, my favorite rock group of all time is The Who, I have seen them a couple of times. Between "Who's Next" and "Quadrophenia", it would be hard to pick the best album. Hope you post here some more.

    Welcome from me too. While I still fish on occasion, I tend to enjoy the ones in the pond behind the house much more.

    Koi keeping it seems is really big in England with some small ones fetching in excess of 4000 pounds.

    Good to see a fellow "Ham" here.

    Main rig here is kenwood ts-2000. I have various other handitalkies, and mobile rigs. My antenna situation doesn't do the ts-2000 justice. I only have a G5RV up 30 feet. J-pole for 2 meter and 70 center manager.

    I'm on holiday next week, so maybe we can sked something via echolink or IRLP. I haven't used those modes very much.

    I'll go to qrz for your contact info
