Hello and thanks for visiting my site...

My interest in radio and electronics started when I was about 12 after building a crystal set.
I then was a member of various school radio and electronics clubs and started Short Wave Listening at about 13 years of age using R1155 and R107 receivers and a longwire aerial, ending up with an FRG-7700 and an FRG-100 which I still have. I was a Short Wave Listener for 37 years and with the advent of the new style licensing exams in the UK, decided to get licensed! This started with M3JUH (Foundation Licence) in October 2002 and then 2E0MJD (Intermediate Licence) in June 2004. I passed the Advanced Licence Exam in June 2006 and became M0XJP. This callsign belonged to my good friend Don Bache who sadly passed away in February 2006.

M0XJP and 2E0MJD are both my current callsigns for life under the OFCOM licensing system!

The FULL Licence allows me, amongst other things, to operate in CEPT countries - I operate (Alinco DX70TH, ATU & G5RV) from Spain regularly (Last operation 19-24 September 2011) and visit LA ROMANA (IM98ni) ASPE near ALICANTE using the callsign EA5/M0XJP. I have also operated (July/August 2007) from France as F/M0XJP/P in the Alps at SAMOENS (JN36ib) Col de Joux - Plain (1700 meters ASL) and at GALESSIE (JN54sk) near CAHORS, S.W. France (about 300 meters ASL). All foreign operation QSL cards gratefully received and confirmed!

I also operate occasionally as M0XJP/P from the QTH of G0UYN in the Isle of Wight (EU120)

As you can see from the equipment below I use various items to enhance the received sound as my hearing is not the sharpest available! Please be tolerant if we have a QSO - Your callsign phonetically the first time helps me a great deal!

I look forward to our first contact, best 73’s de Martin
