HI & WELCOME TO MY WEB PAGE

MY CALL SIGN IS M3TYY & MY NAME IS VIN

HERE IS A BIT ABOUT MY STATION.

I AM A LICENSED RADIO AMATEUR AS OF 13th AUGUST 2006.

I AM ONLY ACTIVE IN DIGI MODES FROM IO94FW

THE COUNTY OF TYNE & WEAR

 JUST 3.5 MILES SOUTH OF THE CITY OF NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE

I AM VERY CLOSE TO THE GB3NT 70 CM'S REPEATER WHICH TRANSMITS ON 433.0000 MHZ & ALSO THE GB3TW 2 MT'S REPEATER WHICH TRANSMITS ON 145.725 MHZ

I AM ALSO VERY CLOSE TO THE ANGEL OF THE NORTH STATUE

MY TX LOCATION IS ACTUALLY 140 METRES ABOVE SEA LEVEL SO I HAVE A GREAT TAKE OFF POINT FOR GROUND WAVE CONTACTS AND MY SIGNAL SOUNDS PRETTY STRONG BUT, UNFORTUNATELY I DO NOT HAVE THE ROOM FOR A LARGE ANTENNAE SYSTEM

I OPERATE LOW POWER MAX. 10 WATTS  PSK 31 & 63 ON THE 10 & 12 MTS H.F. BANDS

My Digital station is:-
